Support » Theme: Canard » Change footer width

  • I have our contact info in the footer. However, it is in a column that is narrow and I don’t know how to make it go across the entire width of the page instead.
    Do I need to add some custom code and if so, what and where?
    Thanks

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    That URL does not appear to be correct. What is the real URL of the site?

    Sorry, I was correcting a similar site and somehow pasted the wrong parts.
    Site is http://www.bouldercityantiquemarket.com.

    You’re going to want to get a valid SSL certificate on the site: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=bouldercityantiquemarket.com&hideResults=on

    This is what any normal visitor currently sees instead of your site: https://d.pr/i/KPH6Z5

    As for the footer, this is actually a relatively easy fix.

    The theme has 4 footer widget areas, so use blank Text widgets to take up space in the other widget areas.

    For example, how about something like:

    blank Text widget – Contact US – Map widget – blank Text widget

    Thanks, I appreciate the help. A bit kludgey but it does work. I am working on adding the SSL, just have to get the certificate installed.
    Now I just need to get rid of the little search bar under the title. Any idea how to do that? I can’t seem to find a control for that one.

    There’s no direct way to remove that, it’s intended to be part of the menu, so you’d have a bunch of options and that at the end, like at https://canarddemo.wordpress.com/

    If you don’t plan on having anything there though, add this via Additional CSS in your Customizer:

    #search-navigation {
        display: none;
    }

    Or, if you _only_ want to get rid of the search button:

    #search-header {
        display: none;
    }

    Thank you, that worked perfectly, search bar gone.
    Is there a way to get the sidebar to show up on a phone? I added the Gallery widget but that doesn’t show either. The Text widget works okay on the computer, just nothing on a phone.

    Hm, not specifically, that would be a very hefty change if it were possible, it can’t be done via CSS alone.

    James, thank you for the help.
    Are there similar themes that would be better for use with phone displays? What I have set up now is fairly basic and we won’t be doing anything fancy with this site. It is essentially informational for the store, there will not be any online sales or blog postings. Since we just set it up, I am fine switching to a different theme.
