If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Problem: Pages that use a “Template” (as built by template builder) do not follow Widget rules that you define over in Appearance -> Widgets
How to reproduce the problem:
Using Brightbox, I built a custom template using only two elements: Slideshow (top) followed by a Post/Page Content element.
Then I built a page …
If you leave that page as standard (WordPress defaults to “Default Template”) it will follow whatever footers, sidebars, etc that you have defined in Appearance-> Widgets.
if you go down to the bottom right and tell it to use the Template (as built by Brightbox template builder) it will go back to the defaults
and display the “Interesting Links, Besides are some interesting links for you! Enjoy your stay :)” verbiage…
I need to NUKE this … like quick…
in your footer.php find
if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Footer - column'.$i) ) : else : avia_dummy_widget($i); endif;
change it to
if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Footer - column'.$i) );
This should remove standard footer widgets. Let me know if it works :)!
But a really nice add-on would be the ability to control footers on pages defined using the customer template builder…
