Support » Theme: Poseidon » Strange bar in footer

  • Resolved fredricksoncr


    I was working on this theme and i noticed a strange bar at the bottom. it seems to be a div somewhere i cant find.

    <div id=”ui-datepicker-div” class=”ui-datepicker ui-widget ui-widget-content ui-helper-clearfix ui-corner-all”></div>

    im not sure what file this is in and where to eliminate it.

    any help would be appreciated!

  • so i traced it down, looks like it is being called by a js function titled inside of wp-includes/js/jquery/ui. this seems to be attached to the way the header resizes when scrolling down. i am not a js coder, and i am unable to trace why this is happening. if you change the file name to .old, it goes away, but so does the responsive header.


    fixed it like a boss lol. so in the there was a line of code that created an empty div class. it called the datepicker class and created its own new section. i deleted the <div id='”+this._mainDivId+”‘ class=’ui-datepicker ui-widget ui-widget-content ui-helper-clearfix ui-corner-all’></div> line making sure to leave the a(“”) in its place and that eliminated the strange div bar that was appearing in the footer. this was about 20 lines down in the code. im not really sure why this theme is calling a dead widget but whatever.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for using Poseidon.

    im not really sure why this theme is calling a dead widget but whatever.

    The theme does not call the datepicker file or any widget. I’m not sure why you think this is caused by the theme, since any plugin can add code on the frontend as well.

    I highly recommend to find the responsible plugin and deactivate it instead of changing WordPress Core files 🙂


    i am thinking this is the theme because i didnt have any widgets set up at the time. this was a fresh install on a new webserver. i even examined the code offline, freshly downloaded and the datepicker call was there. its for some kind of built in wordpress calendar.
