Build Layout Pages without Global Nav/Footer?

    Hi,
    I had a question regarding the builder for Swagger theme.

    I’m trying to create product landing pages that have no navigation or any of the global elements of the site. Is there any way to make a page under the Swagger theme, but one that doesn’t inherit global attributes like site navigation/footer nav…etc? I didn’t see a way to do this in the builder.

    I’m trying to avoid having to buy something like Optimize Press if it’s possible with Swagger, please let me know if this is at all possible

    Best,
    Mike

    Hello Mike,

    Yeah, the layout builder only controls the content area of the page. This doesn’t have anything to do with the surrounding elements of the theme. So, this is a customization you’d need to make to the theme.

    The easiest thing would probably just to do it with CSS. WordPress puts a lot of classes on the <body> tag that you can utilize to target elements in specific pages.

    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.

    So, for example:

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

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. 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.
