To create a new Footer, first click “Structure” within your admin toolbar.
Then click Mini panels.
You will now see the Mini panels page where all of your site’s Mini panels are listed. On this page, click “Add”.
Enter an administrative title for your Mini panel and click “Continue”.
On the Context page, do nothing and click “Continue”.
Now, select a layout. Generally you will want a one-row layout for your footer. Once you have selected a layout, click “Continue”.
Finally, add your footer content to the mini panel regions and click “Finish”.
Now, you simply need to add it to the Local Footer region of your theme. The steps to do so have been covered in the section Managing blocks.
