I'd appreciate any suggestion on how to add a custom footer navigation similar to the one found at http://www.washington.edu to a master page?
The link doesn't have to be automatically generated as long as the user can add/remove links and their heading. Initially I thought I can just use several Summary Link Web Parts and control their position using CSS. But unfortunately Master Pages don't support web part zones.
The only other option I know is to use visual web parts to retrieve the links from a SharePoint list. I'd appreciate just some brief direction on how to implement this using Visual Web Part or any other method.
