    Multi footers
    Different footer for different pages.

    <?php
    if ( is_home() ) :
    	get_footer( 'home' );
    elseif ( is_404() ) :
    	get_footer( '404' );
    else :
    	get_footer();
    endif;
    ?>
    

    The file names for the home and 404 footers should be footer-home.php and footer-404.php respectively.
