I am looking for a way to get rid of the area reserved for widgets in the footer of the theme. On desktop, I have accomplished this to some degree by using empty text widgets and custom CSS to reduce the empty black space however, I have noticed on mobile an empty space with horizontal gray lines is visible in the footer area.
Is there a way I can get rid of this / is there a better way I can accomplish this overall? To summarise I only want a narrow black area at the bottom with the copyright and theme credits across my whole website.
Thanks in anticipation.
