The Right Way to Remove the Header or Footer on a Page in Kadence

There are a lot of outdated articles online telling people to use CSS if they want to hide the header or footer of a page using the Kadence WordPress theme. But, there’s actually a much better way to do it that doesn’t use CSS. It actually removes the header or footer from the page for real instead of just hiding it with “display:none”. This method doesn’t seem to be well publicized (perhaps it is new?), so I’ll show you how to do it here!

The Solution: Use “Page Settings”

The key is to use the somewhat hidden Page Settings section of the page. Here’s how to get to the settings:

  1. Edit the page where you want to remove the header or footer on.
  2. Click the Page Settings icon in the upper right corner.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the right sidebar to see the “Disable Header” and “Disable Footer” controls.
  4. Set appropriately and update the page! That’s it!
