How to Add Privacy & Terms Links to Your Divi Footer

Privacy policies and terms and conditions are two important pages that should be easy to access. The footer is perhaps the most popular place to add links to these pages. These links are easy to add to your footer with Divi. In this article, we’ll see two methods on how to add Divi footer privacy & terms links to your website.

We’re going to add the Divi footer privacy & terms links using menus and widgets. This will get us a horizontal layout and a vertical layout. Here’s a preview of how they will look.

Here’s how it will look on a phone.

Create the Divi Footer Privacy & Terms Menu

Create the Menu

First, we’ll create a Divi footer privacy & terms menu. This menu will use the Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions pages that you’ve already created. Both methods will use this menu. Go to Appearance > Menus in the WordPress dashboard. Click Create a New Menu.

Create the Menu

Give the menu a name that makes sense to you. I’m using Privacy and Terms. Leave the menu settings at their defaults. We won’t need to use these settings. Click Create Menu.

Create the Menu

Under Pages, select the Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions pages and click Add to Menu. Arrange them in the order you want and click Save Menu. We can now use this menu in our Divi footer.

Divi Footer Template

Next, we’ll upload a free Divi footer template to the Divi Theme Builder. Both methods will use this template. I’m using the footer from the free Divi Blogger Header & Footer layout pack. To find free footer layouts, search for “free footer” in the Divi blog. Download the template to your computer and unzip it.

To upload the template, go to Divi > Theme Builder in the WordPress dashboard. Select the Portability icon in the upper right of the builder. This opens a modal. Select Import and click Choose File. Navigate to the JSON file on your computer and select it. Click Import Divi Theme Builder Templates and wait for the import to complete. Save your changes and navigate to any page on the front end. We will finish our work with Divi’s new full site front-end editing features.

Method 1: Divi Menu Module

Divi Menu Module

We’ll add the links to the right side for the first method, where the email address is located. Active the Divi Visual Builder, scroll to the footer area, and select Edit Footer Template.

Hover over the row to reveal its settings and select the column structure. Choose three columns. This moves the email link to the center where we want it.

The Divi sidebar module lets us place the links in a vertical stack. To do this, we’ll need to create a menu widget. Go to Appearance > Widgets in the dashboard menu. Select a sidebar area that you’re not using. I’ve selected Footer Area #1. You can create a new sidebar area if you need to. Use the sidebar tool at the bottom of the page.

Select the Plus icon and search for “menu”. Click Navigation Menu to add it to the Footer Area.
