Creating Your First Template

Now that you are familiar with all template concepts and the template library let’s create the most commonly used templates: a website header, footer, and blog post layout in the video below.

Bricks, by default, shows your first published header and footer template on your website. You can disable this behavior from your WordPress dashboard under Bricks > Settings > Templates by selecting the Disable Default Templates setting.

With default templates disabled you need 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 (available when header position is set to left/right)
  • Absolute header (available when header position is set to top)
  • Sticky header (available when 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.
