Removing or hiding footer for Illdy theme


Is it possible to edit the footer for the Illdy theme? If so, could you guide me. I am new to Wordpress. We have the free version.


Hello Lisa,

To change the footer information you need to add your own content inside the footer sidebars in Dashboard > Appearances > Widgets.

If you want to completely remove it, use this piece of CSS code:

display: none;

This code should be placed in a child’s theme stylesheet.css, ideally.
But you can use a Custom CSS plugin or place it inside Dashboard > Appearances > Editor > Style.css but keep in mind that this will get erased if you update the theme.



Thanks for your help. I think I figured it out.


I’m using Illdy - the free version and I would like to hide or remove the entire footer. See picture for the section I’d like to get rid of.
My skills are basic at best … on a good day, when there’s no wind.
Thanks for any help you can provide,

Hello there,

I hope you are doing well today.

You can go to Appearance > Widgets and remove any widgets or content that is assigned to the footer section, making it empty and that would remove the content from the footer.

Best Regards,

Thank you. Unfortunately this doesn’t seem to resolve the issue of getting rid of the footer. There is no content in the widgets. It could be that I do not know how to remove the widgets entirely. Is there another solution?

You need to add addition CSS line of code.

wp-admin area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

/remove entire footer/
{ display: none;}
