Is there a way to disable the flexible footer layout on Breakthrough-Pro without totally messing up responsive settings in the CSS. I'd like to dictate the number of columns and what goes in each column.January 22, 2019 at 2:22 pm #420054Victor FontModerator
Comment out the following line in functions.php:
add_action( 'genesis_before_footer', 'breakthrough_footer_widgets' );

By commenting out the code, the widgets remain in the back-end but the footer is blank. What is the strategy to replace the content?
My goal would be to have a fixed number of columns that would allow me to put widgets in. The flexible resizing causes chaos and I can't put something like a genesis simple social icons widget under a contact card.
I could go with something like Genesis Widgetized Footer but it hasn't been tested with this version of WordPress and shows a last updated status of 6 years ago. I'm also thinking that the flexible nature may come in handy in responsive settings but again, there seems to be little control on how to present the items in any given layout. I've seen the tech documents on how things wrap but that doesn't get me where I need to go.

I found a configuration of widget order that I can live with. I'll fine tune with css.February 20, 2019 at 10:21 am #489635YumeiParticipant
Could you share with us what you did? I am also working with Breakthrough Pro. I was trying to figure out how style the footer as well.February 20, 2019 at 1:46 pm #489643
Alas I hate to disappoint. When Victor said to comment out the code I decided to try and place my footer content in such a way that the core layout functionality would give me something acceptable. In other words, I modified my content to work within the current programming. There is, in the links provided by the theme config, a section about what to expect when you have different numbers of widgets in this area and how they will wrap. The devil is in the details. Of course I didn't want to mess with it too much otherwise the wrapping would fail on mobile.
That said, if this site progresses and I can't live with the layout I'll do one of two things (just guessing here - would need to try it to validate my solutions).
1. I'd follow Victor's advise and comment out the section. If that commenting out the line only took away the breakthrough widget programming but left the before-footer widget area, I'd then add a widegetized footer plugin to style my footer within that before-footer section.
2. If #1 didn't work, I'd figure out how to create it from scratch, probably looking at one of my other Genesis themes that I own to see how a footer that I liked was done.
Hope that helps. The tech crowd here could identify the fallacies with these approaches but I'm more of a trial and error guy.
