    I am using the avant theme and I dont think that there is an option to remove the footer but I dont want to put anything in that space so its just an awkward empty space. Is there a way for me to get rid of that extra space.

    I recommend asking at so the theme’s developers and support community can help you with this.

    Oops… they do their support here:

    I’d put my Copyright line there… I really don’t care for the Copyright line itself… I like to state Copyright with the date as it sort of draws attention to the site being new when the year date is the same as ‘now’ and then points out the site’s longevity after the first year.

    Copyright © 2019 then next year change it to Copyright © 2019 - 2020 or add the php code to print the date in place of the new year and it will take care of itself from there on. Your name, your site name, or your business name is the Copyright owner unless your lawyer advises differently.

    I’d also remove the contact item from the menu since you have a button for that in the header.

    I’d lose the little blue, floating Instagram button as that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the site’s color scheme. Place a link to the contact page and a link to Instagram down there, too. Round that out with a Privacy Policy that fits your site. Some other social media buttons might help.

    You can tweak the CSS that controls that footer to shrink the footer space down which will put more of the focus on the eye candy photo slider back into the top which is what you want to show off your photography skills.

    There are two solutions for this.

    1) Go to additional CSS in Customise from Appeareance
    Add below lines at the bottom of CSS codes


    2) You will footer.php in theme’s root folder.
    Edit the footer.php and
    remove the footer lines as you want.
    and then Save.

    Okay thanks for the tips!
