I've been given some HTML & CSS files by our university web designer and need to replicate essentially the same layout into the library website I'm creating in Drupal. The footer (pleased see attached link) has been the biggest hurdle so far. With this type of column-based inline layout consisting of menus (which I haven't created as menus yet), should I be creating new regions in my .info file to handle each menu? Also with the university address info. and icons, should this be another region or should I add custom variables and HTML so it is just part of the main footer region? Or is there a way using Blocks, Panels or another module to create this layout more efficiently?
One last thing-as you can see the columns have three headings (Who Are You?, Quicklinks, and Admissions) so I plan to create a menu with each name as title. What's the best strategy to deal with the overflow of menu items over more than one column without having to create six separate inline regions for layout purposes?
Thanks for any assistance, guidance, or suggestions. This site has been an invaluable resource in learning Drupal over the past few months and I've learned a lot from all your posts, responses & comments to each other.
