Generally the `<?php get_footer(); ?>` is always going to be the last thing on a template file. for example the page.php file looks like this: ` <?php get_header(); ?> <?php require(THEME_LIB.'/template_page.php');?> <?php get_footer(); ?> ` ...and yes the analytics will work once the footer file is back in place...if you are still unclear on the CSS one of the videos on the docs might help clear it up

Annie, It looks to me like you figured out the highlight template. I see you have a title, text, and image in there. Did you still need help setting up a feature page? (home page from demo, different from a highlight page)

god I would love help setting up a feature page. I read all the directions but am a bit confused (what a shock). also, one other important question. I use google analytics and I pasted my tracking code in the footer.php. I have no idea if I have to insert that in more than one place now that I have a premium template, or even if that won't really work now that I have removed the footer (could be the single most moronic question of the week, but analytics stopped working when I upgraded). thanks for all your help.

you could post the analytics code in the `footer scripts` option under `custom code` :) If you don't want to do that, what you've done now should work fine too.

hello, still not working after having followed the analytics instructions that worked on the old website. major bummer right now. found something called footer scripts (under footer php) but nothing that says custom code? can you tell me exactly the place to go (assume I know nothing and you are safe). Do i need to place it in more than one place? Also, I assume you saw the trail, does this have anything to do with removing the entire bottom footer? even if it doesn't, just let me know so I can rule that out.

it says that it is receiving data, but there have been no hits in 5 days, the day after I updated. it says it is receiving data. but i've sent several people to the site and it is not picking it up. tried to find answers on google. fruitless.

You can do a number of things. The easiest solution is probably to just use a css class `#footer {display:none;}` or go into the template files and delete `<?php get_footer(); ?>` from the various template files

It might have something to do with removing the footer. Let's try adding it back and using CSS to hide the footer (not erase it) Do you need the code again in case you forgot where it went? What theme and version are you on?

thanks adam. one problem. I don't understand any of what you said. :). i'm not a web person, just one of those annoying do it yourself types who drive experts crazy :)I went to edit themes, then to templates (is that where you are talking about?) i found something that looked similar under 404 template. deleted it. didn't change it. I assume there is more but I've spent an hour looking and thought you might be able to tell me relatively easily. thanks adam.

figured it out, adam. in page templates! yeah. one small step for man. one giant step for annie. now, one more. figured out how to get copy in the featuretext, feature title on a highlight page (thought I can't figure out how to center that copy, could you help?). and then I want to place a photo in the featuremedia box (is that where a photo goes?). tried all kinds of things. all of them wrong. can you throw me a bone? and talk to me like I'm 10... please.

I am on Iblog pro. don't know what version. just downloaded it a week ago. I don't have any recollection of where it was. if you let me know all the places it needs to go and what needs to be typed in there I'll try it out. thanks for your help. the sooner you can let me know how to do this the better (it's night where you are now so I understand I likely won't hear til tomorrow)

Annie, I'll go out on a limb here and see if my two cents is worth anything. 1. If you did this: "go into the template files and delete???<?php get_footer(); ?> from the various template files" then replace the original code (put back what you deleted). 2. in Admin > iBlogPro > Theme Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS > CSS Rules, enter `#footer {display:none;}` 3. in Admin > iBlogPro > Theme Options > Custom Code > Footer Scripts & Analytics, enter your Google Analytics code Hopefully that will get your analytics code working but without displaying the footer. BTW, the reason analytics isn't recording visits is because the code is missing. If you look at the source code on a page, you won't find it. Adding the code as above should fix that.

Here's some official help: Google Analytics: From your WordPress Admin ( http://www.sourceintegral.com/wp-admin/'>http://www.sourceintegral.com/wp-admin/ ), in the left menu; navigate to: Appearance > Editor > Footer (footer.php) ( http://www.sourceintegral.com/wp-admin/'>http://www.sourceintegral.com/wp-admin/theme-editor.php?file=/themes/iBlogPro/footer.php&theme=iBlogPro&dir=theme ) then scroll all the way to the bottom of the code and just before the

</body>
tag paste in your Google Analytics code, and click "Update File". Hide/Remove Footer From Appearing on Pages: From your WordPress Admin ( http://www.sourceintegral.com/wp-admin/'>http://www.sourceintegral.com/wp-admin/ ), in the left menu; navigate to: iBlogPro > Theme Options > Custom Code find CSS Rules and paste in:
#footer{display:none}
OR
#footer, #morefoot{display:none}

thanks for the help. I am confused. I already have my analytics where you've asked me to place it. a long time ago. not working there. i wondered if that was because I deleted the footer from all pages. it was then suggested that i re-insert it, so that i could then hide it. right now i don't know where to reinsert it so that the footer reappears so that I can then hide it. i don't remember which places I deleted it from, nor where in the sequence of the code. once you can help me figure that out, then I can hide it as you've suggested.

Annie, No problem. WHen I said to add CSS that means in the theme options panel under "Custom Code" you'd want to enter you css there where it says custom css. Also, just underneath the theme options there is another tab called feature setup (both on the left sidebar of the wordpress admin) this is where you'll want to go to add text and photos to the feature slider and feature boxes. The highlight pages, however, are dealt with differently. Those options are added on the actual page you create. If you scroll down on that page you will see options for highlight text, image, etc. but the highlight page template will have to be selected for them to show up. You follow? Lets get to this point and move from there.

hey thanks for the help. I've set the highlight template. i can write in the text. i can write in the title. i don't have highlight image, only media. when I try to place an image in media... doesn't work. when I try to place a url in there... doesn't work. just want to know how to get an image to show up on the right. and not having much luck with the way I am approaching highlight media.
