Jimmy, it would have been better if you posted this as a separate posting
well, you can not enter PHP-code into the footer using the theme options
that would demand edititing of the theme-file directly
Aren't there any WP-Plugins which you could place into the widget area above the footer or maybe a plugin which interpretes Shortcode, that might be possible to enter in the theme options
There ist a PHP-Shortcode Plugin, check it out:http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/php-shortcode/Update:
this plugin is working fine in posts and pages, but not in the footer-area (there only plain text is possible), I also could not get it to work in a text-widget.
worked, so I could place the php-code in the widget above the footer at least ....
