You can create default.xml file here in your custom theme


Content for this file is ..

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="footer_links" remove="true" />
        <referenceBlock name="form.subscribe" remove="true" />
        <referenceBlock name="copyright" remove="true" />

        <referenceContainer name="footer-container">
            <container name="footer" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer-top" before="-">
                <container name="footer_main.content" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer content">
                    <container name="footer_main.content.row" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="row">
                        <container name="footer_main.content.logo" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer-logo">
                            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="footer.logo" before="-" template="Magento_Theme::html/footer/logo.phtml"/>
                        <container name="footer_main.content.row.social" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer-links">
                            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="footer.links" after="-" template="Magento_Theme::html/footer/links.phtml"/>
                            <block class="Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Footer" name="copyright.custom" template="Magento_Theme::html/copyright.phtml" after="footer_main.content.row.social" />

After adding this content in your xml, you need to create template files.. We will create two new template files and we have used one default template file for copyright text.

So create first template file here


Content for this file is ...

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock("Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Header\Logo")->setTemplate("Magento_Theme::html/header/logo.phtml")->toHtml(); ?>

<a href="external-link">External Link</a>

We will create another template file here.


Content for this file is ..

<div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 col-lg-4 footer-links">
    <a href="test-1">Footer link 1</a>
<div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 col-lg-4 footer-links">
    <a href="test-2">Footer link 2</a>
<div class="col-xs-12 col-lg-4 footer-links">
    <a href="test-3">Footer link 3</a>

Note : You can add your css to display that all blocks properly here..

After adding above files you need to run below commands

php bin/magento cache:clean
php bin/magento cache:flush

Then you can see output as below attached Image..

Hope this will help you!
