I am trying to create a different footer for my site with a static home page with homepage panes enabled. Looking on the WordPress Codex, it appears that I should be able to add the following code to my index.php for the site:
<?php if ( is_home() ) : get_footer( 'home' ); elseif ( is_404() ) : get_footer( '404' ); else : get_footer(); endif; ?>
This should then load the page, footer-home.php on the home page, but not on the other pages where the standard footer is in use. However, when I try this, nothing seems to happen. Am I putting the code in the wrong place? Does it matter that I also have the home page hidden in the child theme CSS using
display: none; (so that it doesn't interfere with the desired layout)?
