Morefoot and Footer Not Showing

Recommended Posts

hakatours

Hi guys Just started editing my site today. I could be doing something really stupid, but I can't get the Morefoot and Footer areas to show on any of the pages. I haven't hidden it on the pages themselves! Anyone got any ideas?? If you need to see the site it is www.hakalodge.com. It's at the very start of creation! Thanks

Go to Settings > Template Setup > Select Site Footer from the Select Template Area and enable the morefoot area and any other areas you want in the footer by dragging them from the right to the left section.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Thanks but I have already done this. That's why I'm confused! Any other ideas why it isn't showing?

I was looking at your html and it looks like you edited the php files. Did you?

If you used markup tags anywhere, double check that none are unclosed/mismatching.

Haven't edited the php no. When I put the address into a markup validator, it tells me the below. Can anyone explain whether this is the reason behind my footer not showing and any ideas how to change it? Line 439, Column 23: there is no attribute "role" <div id="footer" role="contentinfo"> You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Transitional" document type to get the "target" attribute), or by using vendor proprietary extensions such as "marginheight" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead). This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for further information.

Yup so I did! Changed it. Still not resolved the issue of my disappeared footer. Can anyone give me any other ideas as why it isn't showing up? I'm at a complete loss. Very frustrating.

Hi Ellen, I'm actually seeing your footer. It says:

I see that too! But it's not what I have programmed - I have a footer and have dragged and dropped in Morefoot 3 Sidebars + Simple Footer Navigation - this is what isn't appearing! I also have uploaded an image and changed the text within the Footer settings.

Don't know if you've checked this too, but on the "Morefoot 3 Sidebars" and "Simple Footer Navigation" boxes, click Advanced Setup and make sure "Hide by Default" didn't get checked somehow.

I've flagged this for the devs. Just for more info, do you know where this content is coming from?

It's getting put in your #footer div, so it would help to know where this text was defined.

@Tim TTBOMK that's just the default WP footer info, isn't it?

ah yes you're right, it's pulling from wp-includes/theme-compat/footer.php

Not sure why the WP footer is interfering with the theme. Do you have any plugins installed that tap into WP core files?

Ellen, as we discussed via email, it is my diagnosis that you need to reinstall the Platform Pro (not PPBase). It appears that 1) you PP installation is not correct and currently your site is only running on PPBase 2) you are in need of the latest upgrade to 1.3.5. I believe once you have the PP 1.3.5 installed or the latest version, you will then see the footer appear with the PPBase activated. Follow the instructions for upgrading that I sent via email. Follow up here in the forum with your results.

Shaun's advice was correct - the footer is now showing after installing the new version of Platform Pro and activating Base. Thanks!!
