hidden footer on homepage

Hello,
I have noticed that when one builds a site using Site Assist, that some template display visible footers and others do not.

For example 'Texture' template hides its footer on homepage/index while all the other Texture pages display a visible footer. The footer is there in the code but is covered up by wrapper for the main site display.

I have been wondering why you have decided to design your template this way?
Am I missing something?

I am sure there is a valid reason which perhaps someone could explain to me.

Is it an approach to hide the footer for SEO reasons?
My traditional understanding is footers should be visitor readable.

Related to this, if it is simply an oversight. ..could you suggest how I could change the CSS code to revel the existing footer on the index page, for viewing in a browser.
I thought it might be simple but have been struggling with the CSS.

Many thanks for your assistance.
Alan

In the home.css file, you will just have to find this section:
#outerWrapper #footer {
background-image:url(../siteassistpro_images/footer_bg.jpg);
background-position:left bottom;
background-repeat:no-repeat;
color:#F3F3F3;
font-size:0;
padding:0 10px 5px 0;
text-align:right;
}

And change the font-size to something other than 0 and the color to something other than #F3F3F3

thanks

Jimmy,

Many thanks for getting back to me, so quickly, with the detailed instructions for changing the css footer code. It worked very well.

It now gives me that option, unless there is some SEO reason not to reveal the footer text.

Much appreciated.
With regards
Alan

There isn't an SEO reason for hiding the footer text.
