In the Dottoro Theme, the footer consists of two parts. You can place widgets in the upper and custom content (e.g. copyright and other notices) in the lower part of the footer. Moreover, you can set whether the widgets and copyright should be displayed in the footer or not on every page and post on your site ("Footer Type" option).

The Dottoro Theme provides handy tools for displaying widgets in the footer and creating their layout. The theme comes with a predefined widget area named Footer that is designed to be placed in the footer.

If it does not provide enough flexibility, you can always create custom widget areas.

Custom widget areas can be created under Theme Options » Widget Areas. Here you cannot only create widget areas but you can edit the layout of widgets in both the predefined and custom widget areas.

After creating the necessary widget areas you can add widgets to them under Appearance » Widgets in WordPress admin panel.

Having done all this, you only have to decide where you want to display your custom widget areas.
You can select the widget areas you want to display in the footer in the "Sidebar and Footer Widget Areas" section under Theme Options » General » General. This setting can be overridden

For further details, see the Widget areas section.

The "Footer Text" option under Theme Options » General » Footer allows you to specify your content that will be displayed in the lower region of the footer. Although you can use any shortcode in "Footer Text", but there are some shortcodes that are intended for the footer. These are:
