    I just switched my theme from Generate Press to Buddy Boss. My Home Page now has the Buddy Boss header / footer. How do I suppress it on my Home Page so it doesn’t use Buddy Boss. I know how to change the Home Page in WordPress, which shows this as my Home Page.

    Also, it’s not a big deal if Buddy Boss overrides and requires the Home Page Layout of having it’s header and footer…. I just need to know as I move forward with my new look.

    Also in the same vein — can I use one of the other standard builders for pages that are Full Canvas pages? And secondly, where are the Blog Padding Settings?


    PS I tried to tag this post with Buddy Boss, but it kept putting them as two separate words because I put a space between them.

    ALSO…. I just tested this…. I create my page in Thrive Themes, but since I have Elementor active, I changed it to the Canvas format — to remove header/footer on Buddy Boss and it worked.

    However that seems like a less than elegant way to do it.

    I started using the elementor templates creating a header and footer and set it to override the theme. That’s what working on this site right now.

    Glad you found a work around!

    Two questions: 1) When using the Buddy Boss theme, what is the BEST way to set my Home Page to a page by another builder without the headers and footers.

    2) Where are the blog padding settings on Buddy Boss?

    The header and footers template have a display conditions setting that in elementor at least show up when you hold your mouse over the green update/save button.

    So, are you saying that the way Buddy Boss is designed is to have a lot of the Buddy Boss theme preset with defaults…. but then for the flexibility of some of the Heavier Themes that it works in conjunction with the Elementor Builder…. ? So the point is if you want flexibility and more detailed control, you use the Elementor Builder functions?

    The other thing to remember is that elementor lets you create a template for a single post and the post archive.

    This means you can bypass any of the formatting that BuddyBoss has for the entire blog.
