I just built a theme for a client. I am wondering what is the best way to make footer content editable through Wordpress. The footer info looks like this:

  • Company Name
  • Address Line 1
  • Address Line 2
  • Phone and Fax
  • Email (linked with mailto)

I have some ideas on how to do this:

  1. Make a page called footer and grab the content from there.
  2. Widgetize the footer and make it a text widget
  3. Make a themes option panel with the option to customize this text

I would love to know what you guys think is your best solution to this.

Thank you in advance!

I would go with a Widgetized footer.

If you want to go the extra mile, rather than create Theme Options, simply create a custom Widget, e.g. Footer Contact Details, that has editable text inputs for Company Name, Address Lines 1 and 2, Phone/Fax, and Email.
