So using the OceanWP theme for my Blog site is a really good decision as it is a highly functional theme and has more features available compared to its competitor theme, Astra. You will get more features and options in the theme panel, I am not promoting them nor they are paying me any bucks for these words.


Okay okay, I know I am going off the topic but this is the first blog post I am writing so I was just introducing you to the theme and its usefulness to me.


Now I am going to the guide, the reason you still stick here.


In the theme, I had disabled or deleted all widgets and their content from admin but still can’t manage to remove the footer wholly from my site. But later on, I came to know that that was not the case to hide or remove footer globally in WordPress site with OceanWP theme.

Locate Footer widgets option and click it



Step 3: Now you will see here the first check-box option called ENABLE FOOTER WIDGETS checked which causes the footer to show up on site, Uncheck box will hide the footer in the live preview.
