This relates to this previously asked question.

I followed exactly the advice given but it doesn't seem to work?

The advice was: "Duplicate the header.php to header-{custom-name}.php, let's say (header-nonavfooter.php) then in the template file replace get_header() with get_header('nonavfooter'). In the new header file (header-nonavfooter.php) remove the code related to navigation."

At the top of the template I'd like to have no navigation or footer is this:

<?php
/*
* Template Name: No Navigation/ No Header
*/

if (!defined('ABSPATH'))
exit; // Exit if accessed directly
get_header('headerremoved');
?>

I created a file called headerremoved.php (with the removed navigation) but it still loads the navigation which suggests this template is loading the original header...

Very confused why it isn't working - is there something I should be looking for to problem-solve here?

My headerremoved.php (named like that) is like this:

<?php
if (!defined('ABSPATH'))
exit; // Exit if accessed directly
/**
* The Header for our theme
*
* Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div 
id="main">
*
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage
* @since 2015
*/

<!-- navigation removed -->

The top of my template file looks like this:

<?php
/*
* Template Name: No Header
*/

if (!defined('ABSPATH'))
exit; // Exit if accessed directly
get_header('header-headerremoved');
?>

  • Try and remove the get_header() line completely. What happens? – Jack Johansson Aug 10 '17 at 0:02
  • It breaks the entire theme/ css... The strange thing is that I had it working but I renamed the file with the removed navigation and I can't recreate how to do it. I've checked multiple times for typo's etc – henry Aug 10 '17 at 0:08
  • Any chance of having a look into your headerremoved.php file? By the way, the file name should be header-headerremoved.php to work. – Jack Johansson Aug 10 '17 at 0:10
  • sure - thanks - i've updated the question to show the code – henry Aug 10 '17 at 0:19
  • I meant the file's name, not the call to it :) When you use get_header('header-headerremoved');, WordPress will automatically add a header- prefix, and look for the file. For example, it will look for header-header-headerremoved.php in your case. So, rename your file to header-headerremoved.php, and use get_header('headerremoved'); – Jack Johansson Aug 10 '17 at 0:22

If you take a look into the codex page for get_header() function, you will notice that WordPress automatically adds a header- prefix to your call. For example, using this:

get_header('sample');

Will search for the header-sample.php file. So, in your case, you should name your header file header-headerremoved.php and then call it the following way:

get_header('headerremoved');
