How to place shortcode header and footer elements?

  • Hello,
    I am trying to place a template saved shortcode of a header and another one of a footer.
    So far I was able to follow documentations and insert the header shortcode with elements enabled. But it showed under the original default header. I activated disable elements and went to customize the layout, but can’t seem to find a way to disable the original header or even footer.
    I also need guidance on where to place the footer shortcode within elements. What type element to create? and where to place the footer template short code?
    Thank you

  • Hi there,

    Can you use a Block Element Site Header and Block Element Site Footer to insert the template shortcodes?

    Using those two elements type would replace the default header and footer of the theme.

    If that doesn’t help then we will need to see the site, unfortunately – please start a staging site with an arbitrary URL for it if liability is an issue.

    Let me know 🙂

  • Thanks Leo,
    I will try right now, if not I’ll try to setup staging, and will let you know by tomorrow.

  • Hi Leo,
    So it took me a while just to realize that I didn’t have generateblocks installed. Anyway, installed and added elements, and it worked. Exactly how I intended it to look and function.
    Thank you!

  • No problem 🙂
