When using the UMaine 1.0 design, the Links section of WordPress powers the dark gray footer of your website:
Note the gray area will not appear on your website until you’ve added at least one link to the Links section. The footer is a good place to add links to related programs, sponsors or helpful resources. You can have up to 6 categories (columns) of links with up to 10 links per category.
To add a new link, click on Links -> Add New or to edit an existing link, click on the link title in the list. You’ll be brought to this screen:
When you’ve filled in the required options, click the blue “Add/Update Link” button to add your link to the footer.
