I feel it is currently a little cumbersome and too large… Dominates the page a little too much, and looks a little amateurish… I have so far explored the theme settings thoroughly, but to no avail, and tried changing various font size settings in the footer.php and style.php pages in the editor.. (I have managed to change the size of the sidebar which appears on some pages of the site, but not as yet the footer links)..
The reason I question a sticky footer, and mention a custom built one may work better, is to achieve a look a couple of my competitors have achieved – which can be seen either on http://www.oxfordski.com, or http://www.blueandwhitelocations.com.. The second one, I particularly like the social media bar, but this is perhaps a different thing altogether..
I am relatively comfortable having a go at changing the themes CSS, if I know how to change it back (and can undo any issues that arise)
Many thanks again..
