[resolved] Footer Help (4 posts)

    I'm setting up a new website using your theme and would like to create a clean front page by removing the footer from the front page specifically. I installed a plugin, dynamic widgets, which was able to remove most of the footer but the archive, meta and search bars are still around. What's the best way to remove these, and the black line above the footer, from the page?

    Those are defaults, they will be used if there is no widget put in the sidebar.

    Since you got to remove the border using CSS anyway, just display none to the sidebar area for the front page. There is no need for template override.

    Make a child theme, or use one of the Custom CSS plugin and display none that section for front page only.

    .home #secondary { display: none; }

    In case that's done directly to the theme, not using childtheme, you have to do the same each time it updates.

    And template override in child theme has a downside that you will not get update of that particular template from parent theme if there is, and you won't know it.
