    I want to remove the footer zone at the bottom. (keeping the very bottom, just the grey rectangle that has the four wiget areas) and I assumed just removing the widgets from those areas would remove it itself, but when I do that, I get the normal widgets (the ones that come pre-built with habitat,m saying lorem ipsum and such) so for now I have four blank arbirtary text zones taking up that space to make it look neater, but I kind of want that box gone completely, if it’s possible.

    I went into the sidebar/footer habitat options page, but all that was there was to remove the template widgets from the sidebarm, which I pressed, but nothing to stop the footer ones.




    delete following code in footer.php:

    <div class="wrapper footer ie6fix" id='wrapper_footer_top'>
    <div class='overlay_top ie6fix'></div>
    <div class='center' id="footer_inside">

    $columns = 1;
    foreach ($k_option['custom']['footer'] as $footer_widget) //iterates 3 times creating 3 footer widget areas
    $last = "";
    if($columns == 4){$last = "last"; }

    echo '<div class="footerColumn '.$footer_widget.' '.$last.'">';
    if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Footer - '.$footer_widget) ) :

    else : dummy_widget($columns); endif; // dummy widgets defined at the bottom of widgets.php

    echo '</div>';


    <!--end footer_inside-->


    Works perfectly, thanks very much!

    Quick side question, the footoer bit that I kept, the part with the copyright info, is there any way to bring it up a bit, so that it appears just below the actual content on any page? Thanks!


    Yes – search for following code in style.css:

    margin:0 auto;
    padding:35px 40px 10px;

    and replace it with:

    margin:0 auto;
    padding:0 40px;


    this is what i would like to do with my site here:


    can you let me know how – please?
