I am new to WP and hope I am posting in the proper place. Any and all help to get me going in the proper direction on all issues is appreciated.
I selected Agency Pro because the css and menu were smooth. Other Themes had fuzzy letters and other issues that did not appear to be very professional or StudioPress Quality.
I noticed that most good looking sites including the StudioPress sales documentation have removed and/or modified the credits.
I have tried using simple edits to remove the footer but still end up with a white strip where the credits were. I have experimented with editing the functions.php without luck.
What is the best way to remove this footer?
What is the best way to edit/create a good looking footer?
What is the best way to edit the header?
Thanks for your helpApril 15, 2018 at 9:36 am #218987
Try the code snippets under Header and Footer https://my.studiopress.com/documentation/snippets/
Note : Code may not work if the Simple Edits plugin is active.
Best to ask 1 question per post.

Thanks for the reply.
I removed the Simple Edits Plugin, edited the functions.php to include the "Customize the Site Footer" sniplet but I do not know where to begin.April 15, 2018 at 10:07 am #218992
You need to modify the code to customize the footer.

Ok, Editing the functions.php will allow me to edit the footer but how do I completely remove this white strip that is left when there is no content in the function.April 15, 2018 at 10:40 am #218994
Link to your site.
Do you want to entirely remove the footer or modify it?

Thanks for your patience and help.
I could be wrong, but at the moment I felt that I wanted to simply remove it and add any footer html to the Theme footer scripts.April 15, 2018 at 10:59 am #218996
Thats 2 different things.
2. The footer is for footer credits, I.E text and HTML links. For this, i suggest modifying the HTML in this PHP https://my.studiopress.com/documentation/snippets/footer/customize-the-site-footer/

Ok, Cool you helped me to understand the proper way of working with WP and these themes.
FYI: I was able to make a transparent footer by putting html into the footer scripts. It was kind of a cool effect over a picture background.April 15, 2018 at 12:02 pm #219000
I assume you mean the PHP code to modify the footer and not the Header and Footer scripts box?
April 15, 2018 at 12:24 pm #219001
No I simply dropped html into the Theme footer scripts as an experiment and it looked cool.
Putting a php function into the functions.php file appears to be a good option but at the moment I am thinking that completely deleting the footer and making a footer widget would be the best.
Not sure how to delete the footer or add a footer widget in this theme.April 15, 2018 at 12:30 pm #219002
Try this in functions.php :
add_theme_support( 'genesis-footer-widgets', 3 );
You can try changing the 3 to 1

Thanks for the info. Not sure if I am quite up to speed the widgets and associated lingo.
When I modified add_theme_support from 1 to 3 I ended up with only 1 footer section in the widgets not 3. Not sure if this helped me or not.
What I was trying to to was add a complete footer widget like in the free oceanWP. In OceanWP I was able to add "footer widget" directly form the customize menu. This was great since I could add a logo, menu, social media and a title all on one footer with ease. At the moment it does not appear that I can create such a footer as a widget or other in studiopress without significant work if it can be done at all.
Is there a convenient way to make a compact footer with ease in studiopress?
I do like this theme but it seems pretty odd that a free theme ismore user friendly when it comes to making a nice compact footer.April 15, 2018 at 4:04 pm #219004
I entered html into the functions.php and as far as I can see it will not work and I need to be placing it into the spot where the default footer is.
When I insert a html footer it is framed with a thick white border and will not and will not cross the whole page like the stock header and menu does.
How do I make a header go across the whole bottom of the page?
