Add Code to Your Joomla Site Footer

This will show you how to add code to your Joomla site footer. Often websites such as Google Analytics will ask you to place code at the very bottom of the your site. They do this so that if their code doesn't load, your site still will. If the code was at the top of the site and had a problem, your whole site would go down.
