You should provide your own “footer” template _footer.html

Also change the Site name by editing fixture/initial_data.json you can also use the Admin app for this purpose. The url name “home” should be defined as the homepage.

Upgrading Previous Version

To upgrade you site start by upgrading to the latest version on pinax-theme-foundation

pip install -- upgrade pinax-theme-foundation

The big change between Foundation 2 to 3 is the grid. In Foundation 3 you no longer have to use .container to define the grid. In Foundation 2 the grid was built around .container > .row > .columns in Foundation 3 you now just have to use .row > .columns. In Foundation 3 padding and borders no longer increase the width of an element, they only go inward so for example in Foundation 3 .three.columns always has a width of 25% with a 15px padding on the left and right. You can find the Foundation 3 migration guide here Remove all max-width from css sytling
