By default, 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 may be various areas to hold content. Click the wrench icon to configure these settings.

Initially, it loads with a four-column 'fat footer' above a 'simple footer'.
