Seren - Remove block areasBrowser Info Environment
Grateful for help.
Sorry for the delay in our response. I'm afraid those areas are coded into the template, and you would need to create a custom page template and footer.php. To edit the home page template, you would need to use home.php located in the Seren package folder here:
Open this up in something like Notepad++ or Dreamweaver and rename it, e.g. home-custom.php. Then you need to delete the lines for the areas that you don't want to have in your template. In this case, you would delete from about line 75 starting with this code
<div class="seren-full-width seren-home-4">
to about line 110 where you will see #main-5 and .seren-full-width end.
</div> <!--/#main-5--> </div> <!--/.seren-full-width-->
Save the new page template locally, as you may need to upload it again if you update your theme in the future.
Then as you are deleting footer areas, you also need to customise footer.php which is located here:
So like you did before, open up footer.php in Notepad++ or similar. I would suggest saving the original footer.php elsewhere in case you want to use it again (e.g. you can save it as footer-original.php and keep it locally). Then make the changes, but leave the edited version as footer.php. To remove the areas you want, delete from around line 6:
to line 32
</div> <!-- /#seren-top-footer -->
I would advise that you should save to the clipboard any contents on your concrete5 website that you have in the areas that you will be removing (e.g. Sitewide Top Footer 1 etc.), and then delete them. That way, you can use the content later if you need. It usually doesn't matter, but sometimes content that was in areas no longer in a page template seems to cause problems.
Then you would need to upload the new page template to your server under packages/seren/themes/seren, go to the dashboard and select pages and themes > page templates button next to Seren > your new page template should be showing > click OK. Then navigate to your home page and choose your new page template under Design. You would also need to upload your new footer.php to packages/seren/themes/seren/elements
