****. I thought they might have been the same. The Footer Pages shown in your last attachment wouldn't be the footer text themselves, but the pages they link to so I'm guessing then that the footer text is created (and added dynamically to the string assigned to the variable $WAFooterLinks as shown in your earlier attachments) whenever a new 'Footer' page is generated from the Footer Pages template in your Admin cms. I am at a loss without PS4 to refer to.
Hopefully bumping this post will bring in the experts.
