Changing/Deleting Footers in "Scribe"

I'm using the UpFront child theme "Scribe" but I can't figure out how to gain complete control of the footers. For example when adding events (using WPMUDEV's Events+ plugin) to the site calendar, the created posts still puts the default "place-holder-example-content" in the footer of the post, even though I deleted this default content from the footer.php file. HELP? Same thing happens with the pages created by "MarketPress" -- the default footer content is still there and I can't figure out where its hiding or being pulled from.

    Here's some example links (scroll to bottom to see default footer content):
    http://www.vesselsofadventure.com/store/
    Also, I cave a calendar (event+ plugin) on the homepage -- http://www.vesselsofadventure.com you can click on one of the events to see the default footer showing up or here's a direct link to one of them: http://www.vesselsofadventure.com/events/2015/06/test1-2/

    And yes, I tried back end editing using the "edit" option for the them. I found the offending content in one of the footer.php files, but it still shows up after that section of the file was deleted; so it must be hiding somewhere else, but I can't find it and have run out of ideas as to where to look.

    Hi @Parker Bradley,

    Hope you are doing good today and thanks for your question :slight_smile:

    Deleting them from footer.php file will not work here. Its coming database directly using Upfront framework (that's another great feature of UF). You can delete and edit footer area by following steps mentioned in this manual.

    Delete footer section:
    1. Click on upfront button in admin bar to edit the theme while opening any of the above two URLs (not home page).
    2. Click on pencil icon, that will appear when you will hover over on footer section and click red X button (see screenshot).
    3. Save changes.

    Edit/delete footer elements:
    1. Click on upfront button in admin bar to edit the theme while opening any of the above two URLs (not home page).
    2. To edit or delete any element in footer you have to ungroup each element first, hover over the element and click on "UnGroup" (see screenshot).
    3. After un-grouping now you can edit or delete any or all elements (see screenshot).
    4. Save changes.

    Hope this helps and feel free to let us know if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Cheers, Sajid
