Removing colored bar at bottom of page

Hello: on the sparkling theme there is a colored bar at the bottom of the page, the same color as the background to the menu at the top of the page. When there’s a copyright notice it appears in that bar.

I’ve worked out how to remove the copyright notice, but I’d really like to remove the colored bar altogether, or make it transparent so that my background image shows through.

I’m also not sure what that colored bar is called? (I’d call it a footer, but its not always exactly at the very bottom of the page so sometimes my background appears both above and below it.)

In any case, how can I get rid of it or hide it?


Hi @rdatlanta,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of the latest version of Sparkling theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Sparkling Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

footer#colophon {
    display: none;

Best Regards,
