Reply To: Custom page layout without menu?

Jason Bobich


Keep in mind that the custom layouts only include the content area of a page. So nothing actually in the Layout Builder is going to effect the surrounding theme areas like the Header and Footer.

But one thing you could do easily is simply hide the main menu with CSS. When WordPress generates every page, it adds classes to the body that you can use to style specific scenarios. So, for example, WordPress gives every page’s body a class like page-id-{page_id} that you can then use to style that page specifically.


For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

.page-id-123 #access { display:none; }

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
