Footer Disclosure Text

is there a way to get the footer text to go the full width of the page? it is bunching up on 1/3 of the page right now

It is expected behaviors since there is a menu on the left side of footer copyright information.

You can make it full width (footer full width) by adding this code to Theme Options - Other - Custom CSS.

.copyright.col-md-6 {
    width: 100%;
    text-align: left;

It will also align text to the left as it might be more appropriate to edit it this way. If not, just remove the last line from the code.

Thank you so much- one more question. How do I add hyperlinks to my footer? I have to have them for compliance reasons.

That custom footer area inside Theme Options does support HTML formatting, so you can add regular HTML link like this:

<a href="">Your Link</a>
