The fat (widgetized) footer comes ready to support one, two, or three columns by default.
If no widgets are placed in any of the three widgetized areas, no fat footer HTML structure will display. If at least one of the three widgetized areas has a widget, the fat footer is activated.
If only one of the three areas has a widget (any one of the three), it will display full-width. If two of the three areas have widgets (any two of the three), they will display half-width. If all three areas have widgets, a 3-column structure will display.
All fat footer functionality is automatic. There are no settings. Also, because of the conditional logic, the fat footer widgetized areas have no need to support the default widget.
