Disabling Fixed and Header sections permanently?

Recommended Posts

I would like to have my front page go as-is with only one full-width section + the footer. I'm not having success in permanently removing the top Fixed and Header sections. The Header goes away but then returns, the Fixed I especially want gone––I've tried changing the background color to black, which the editor allows me to set, but nothing happens when I refresh and publish. Bug?

 

Anyway, I'd much rather have the two sections deleted for my first page.

In the options for the header and footer you can hide the elements on specific pages - using the page options you can see the page id. copy this and add it to the 'hide on specific pages' options in the header and footer.

Thanks, I did know about that hide option. But I do see what the problem is––when I refresh my page on another laptop running Firefox, it doesn't reflect the changes. And unfortunately, Chrome on my PC laptop running Windows 7 is also still showing that 'Fixed' header.

 

Also, in both cases, the color change setting to black for that 'Fixed' section isn't working either. For whatever reason that is, but I am seeing that the Hide setting is 'sticking' in my Chrome browser on a 'newer' Macintosh (larger dinosaur). So it seems that only on one of three laptops does the screen refresh after an update. Mysterious...

what plugins do you have activated. 

 

Have you clicked publish? is the light green? 

 

if the site isnt showing changes then it either isnt published or you need to clear your other browsers cache.

And the plot sickens...I've just logged out of Wordpress and now I see that all three laptops show that Fixed section when I'm not logged in. Seems it is truly fixed. Is there a way to tweak it in the back end to make it go away?

Aaah...the old clearing cache and restarting browser trick. All's well.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
