[Resolved] Remove or move footer widget on just home page

  • Hi again. Sorry for all the Saturday posts.

    I’m trying to either remove the footer widgets from only the home page (‘front page template’) and not the other pages that use ‘default template’ or, ideally move them to the bottom of the page. There is not content on the home page except a full page background image, navigation and footer widgets. Since there is no content the footer widgets on the hope page are on top of the page right under the navigation.

    Is this something I edit in the file ‘front-page.php’? I don’t want it to change on any of the other pages which uses ‘default template’ but I’m not sure which .php file is the default.

    Is there anyway to achieve this? Changing behavior of the footer widget only on the home page and nowhere else.

    Thank you!

  • If you home page doesn’t have any content, it is not a good thing, especially in terms of google (SEO), there should be at least something that search engines could index.

    Are you putting some slider in there?

    The client just wants the image, which is a photograph of the businesses cut out sign/logo so when you go to their page that is the first thing you see large and centered. Then the navigation sitting up top above it and the footer is their business hours and address. Then when you click onto any other page, the image lowers in opacity and text overlays it.

    i hope I’m making sense.

    I understand what you are saying about the google SEO but unfortunately i’m following client’s design desires.

    If you want to move footer down, insert your image in a <div> that has parameters of height and width.

    If you want to hide it, you may try:

    body.home footer {
    display: none;

    I’m not sure how to place the image in a <div> since I am using the plugin ‘Background Manager’ so the image on every page is a full screen. Any suggestions where to look to accomplish moving the footer down while still using this plugin on the page?

    The code worked to remove the footer (thank you!!) But now the client is asking for the footer to be on the home page since it has the business hours, etc but moved down.

    Any direction to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Would it work to move it down using something like the about code that removed it but instead of ‘display: none’ it moves it to the bottom or the screen?

    It is very hard (and unproductive) to help by doing a guess work. Please provide your site address, so it would be possible to see real situation.

    I understand and apologize for that. The client does not want it live until it is completed. If you let me know when you are on the message board and have time to check the site I will make it live and send the link. I will be at the computer working on it most of the day so will keep checking back to see when you are on.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

    I’m here.

    Great, thank you!

    So what I am trying to do is on the home page move the footer down towards the bottom so it sits right under the image of the sign. That way their homepage has their hours and such because all they want are those and the image which is their logo.

    thank you!

    I’m experimenting a bit, but even if you get the footer down, it will be somehow interrupted by the background image, in this case perhaps you could make it smaller? On my laptop monitor, that has pretty high resolution background image extends past to bottom of the screen.

    I noticed that on narrower browser window it gets better, but wide screen are pretty popular these days.

    Thank you, I appreciate you experimenting! I’ve been trying several ways also with sticky footers and positioning in the css but nothing seems to be moving it.

    I see what you mean about the image extending, I could make it smaller. right now the images is 1060 x 826 but the plugin I used to make it full screen is supposed to make it responsive so the image shouldn’t be extending. I will have to play with that a bit.

    hmmm yes I see what you mean now. Maybe I should play with making the overall image wider so it fits to the wider screens?
