How to remove Footer Widgets on specific Pages in Genesis

Posted on

In my Facebook group a user asks:

Do you have a tutorial for removing the footer widgets from a couple of pages on a site (using Genesis, of course!)

Now I do.

The following sample code, when added to child theme’s functions.php will remove footer widgets on ‘About’ and ‘Contact’ Pages in a Genesis site:

// Remove Footer Widget Areas on 'About' and 'Contact' Pages
add_action( 'genesis_after_content_sidebar_wrap', 'sk_footer_widget_areas' );
function sk_footer_widget_areas() {

	if ( is_page( array( 'about', 'contact' ) ) ) {
		remove_action( 'genesis_before_footer', 'genesis_footer_widget_areas' );
	}

}
