Footer Modes

Different modes for every need

SFS offers its users a variety of ways to showcase their footer content, each appropriate for different needs.

Once you have selected the mode, you will open the appropriate window with various options to choose from to customize your footer.

By default, it is set to Normal Mode.

The Normal Footer Mode, as the word itself says, is a normal footer that replaces the default footer of the theme already activated automatically.

You can just create your own footer using the designated Page Builder and it’s ready.

The only possible options with the Normal Mode are Sticky and Shadow above the footer content.

Sticky Mode is recommended only for light and short content.

The Reveal Footer fits perfectly to all styles, hiding with a touch of elegance its footer that seems to appear on behind the page.

Dozens of customizable options

Slide Up Footer is a feature-rich mode, but we see it better up close.

Once activated, a control panel which consists of two macro categories, “Settings” and “Handle Style” will appear.

In Settings you can decide if you want to open the Footer Handle with Click or Mouse Hover, set the height of the footer content, whether normal or full height version, the height, and color of a separator positioned under the handle.

You can also set the kind of animation you choose for the footer handle, the footer content opening speed and finally decide if you want to open the footer content automatically when the user reaches the bottom of the page.

To make the experience of the navigator even richer we have created a section dedicated to the style of the Handle.

You can decide if you want a classic handle or a full width.

In the first case, you can decide what shape to assign to the handle, a rectangle, a rounded one, a circle or a half moon shape, depending on your needs.

Then you can set its position within the page, whether in the center, left or right; Aligning the icon relative to the text, you could give Transparency to the handle so it would not be too invasive on the page or also a Shadow on the top to detach it slightly from the page content.

To offer full customization with the Open and Close Tab, you can create different handles for opening and close the content of the footer. Decide on the text, the icon between the three integrated libraries (optional, you can also select only the icon or just the text to add), their color, and finally the color of the handle background.

The Font Tab simply offers the user the ability to set a style to the handwriting font, from style to size.

Stretch option

To make the stretch option visible you need to set the width of the handle as Full Width and the position of the handle as Center then the Stretch option appear like the image below:

An amazing way to show your footer

One of the most customizable modes of the Smart Footer System is that it’s designed to provide a unique navigation experience, consisting of two main categories, the Desktop, and Mobile versions.

You can create two completely different and unique styles for the various devices by copying the desktop style to the Mobile version with a special button for a quick change of settings.

In the first tab, we find the basic settings for the banner content, you can define the horizontal and vertical padding (1x is 15px, 2x to 30px, etc.), the alignment of the textual content inside the banner and the opening speed of the footer content. Or finally, SFS Banner Mode offers the option of adding additional options to prevent the banner from being too invasive for the user by activating the Auto Show and/or Auto Hide options, you can enter a digit in seconds with which the banner appears or disappears.

You can also combine these options with the third option that allows you to open the banner only when the user reaches the bottom of the page.

From the Background Tab, you can define all the parameters for the background of the banner box. You can set a background image (deciding on positioning and repetition) or a color, set a different color to the mouse hover, or simply insert an overlay color to set on the image.

In the Tab Text, you can optionally place a Title and a Short Subtitle to show in the banner, deciding on the color of the text and a different color for mouse hover effect.

The Tab Button allows the full customization of the button that will be displayed in the banner along with the text.

Title, Subtitle and Button Font Styles are available in the Font Tab
