PHP Question

add a Menu to my WordPress Theme footer.php

I'm trying to add a custom footer to my WordPress theme, I upload my static website here and now I trying to make it dynamic, I added my primary menu to WordPress but I don't know how can I exactly add footer to my wordpress theme?

do I have to make another menu and use it here like

$args= array(
'theme_location' => 'footer'
wp_nav_menu(); ?>

and then register it in function.php
or it has another way?

Thanks in advance!

You may want to display it by registering dynamic widget and displaying in your footer.php instead:

Registering Footer Widget

register_sidebar( array(
    'name' => 'footer Sidebar 1',
    'id' => 'footer-sidebar-1',
    'description' => 'Appears in the footer area',
    'before_widget' => '<aside id="%1$s" class=" %2$s">',
    'after_widget' => '</aside>',
    'before_title' => '<h4 class="widget-title">',
    'after_title' => '</h4>',
) );

displaying Footer widget

<div class="col-sm-3">

Then in your Dashboard Widget Menu add your custom code via Text Widget placing into your footer-sidebar-1 sidebar.

Hope it works..
