Formerly named 'Fat Footer', this component will become the sole element for all site footers. Some additional layout options have been provided.
Older LIVE sites will need to transition.
> Step by step guide for transitioning to the new footer is below
Add the container to the page. When the container is first added, it will display the four-column fat footer and a simple footer (the 'default fat footer (four column)' option). There is only one tab, but depending on the chosen layout, there will be a variety of areas that can each hold content.
Older sites were limited to using the independent out-dated Simple Footer and Fat Footer, but sites can now use this updated component to display just a Simple Footer, just an Enhanced Footer, or a Simple Footer plus a Fat Footer. And the Fat Footer can have four or six columns of links.
To take advantage of the new features, sites that are not yet in the new brand may need to follow the procedures described below starting with Do I Need to Make Changes?

The Footer is now the only container element to be used in your site footer and replaces the Simple Footer.
The new Footer container has options for a Simple Footer OR an Enhanced Footer, plus an optional four- or six-column Fat Footer.

This is very similar to the older Simple Footer, with a UB Logo on the left (and nothing else). On the right, a single column is intended to house site name, contact information, and social media links. Below is a site-wide standard copyright and other links.
NB. This footer option is always accompanied by the site-wide standard copyright and other links.
This is a hybrid between the simple and fat footers, with four columns. A large left column (half-page) is intended to house the site name, contact information and social media links. To the right are three narrow columns for extra titles or links.
NB. This footer option is automatically underlain by UB's standard logo, and copyright, privacy and accessibility links.
This layout is intended to accompany a Simple Footer, and there are now two Fat Footer configurations.
