Creating Your First Template

Now that you are familiar with all template concepts and the template library it’s time to create our first template. We will actually create two templates: your website header and footer.

By default, Bricks will automatically show your first published header and footer templates on your website.

You can disable this behavior from your WordPress dashboard under Bricks > Settings > Templates. Just check the Disable Default Templates setting.

With default templates disabled you need to make sure to manually set Template Conditions when editing your template under Settings > Template Settings > Template Conditions.

The following video will walk you through the entire process:

Header Template Settings

When editing a header template, an additional Header settings group is available under Settings > Template Settings > Header.

There you can find various header-specific settings such as:

  • Header position (top/right/left)
  • Header width (only available when the header position is set to left or right)
  • Absolute header (only available when the header position is set to top)
  • Sticky header (only available when the header position is set to top)

Disable Header On Specific Page

To disable the header on a specific page, go to Settings > Page Settings > General and check Disable Header. Useful for landing/splash pages.

Disable Footer On Specific Page

To disable the footer on a specific page, edit this page and go to Settings > Page Settings > General and check Disable Footer. Useful for landing/splash pages.
