In the footer you can choose the "recent posts widget" and "random posts widget" by following the same steps mentioned in the Sidebar section. And you can change the default number of posts that will be shown by these two widgets by searching for "footerRecentPostsNum = 5" "footerRandomPostsNum = 5".

Pagenavigation Results

This template have a pagination widget like the one you see in the demo.

If you want to use it you have to search for " showPagination = false" and change "false" to "true". But keep in mind two things:

1- You can't use the pagination if you have more than 10000 posts (ten thousand posts).

2- For the pagination to work properly and without any problems you shouldn't have two or more posts that were published in less than one minute, and you shouldn't publish two or more posts in less than one minute (in other words, you must have a gap of at least 1 minute between each post and the other). I know that it's unusual and rare to publish two or more posts in the same minute but I had to warn you about that so you don't face any problems.

Facebook Page Plugin:

<center><div id="fb-root"></div> <script>undefinedfunctionundefinedd, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagNameundefineds)[0]; if undefinedd.getElementByIdundefinedid)) return; js = d.createElementundefineds); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.5&appId=1760806057479925"; fjs.parentNode.insertBeforeundefinedjs, fjs); }undefineddocument, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script> <div class="fb-page" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/soratemplates/" data-width="350" data-height="230" data-hide-cover="false" data-show-facepile="true" data-show-posts="false"><div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore"></div></div></center>
