You might have a reason why you don't want to display the email address in the footer. The question is: how to remove it safely and correctly?


The bad news is that you cannot just easily turn it off somewhere in the settings in the back office. The good news is that the editing of the TPL is very simple and straightforward.

Open this file: /your_theme/modules/ps_contactinfo/ps_contactinfo.tpl

And remove this code:

{if $}
        {* [1][/1] is for a HTML tag. *}
          s='Email us: [1]%email%[/1]'
            '[1]' => '<a href="mailto:'|cat:$|cat:'" class="dropdown">',
            '[/1]' => '</a>',
            '%email%' => $

That's it!

In case you want to remove your email address also from the contact page, open this file: /your_theme/modules/ps_contactinfo/ps_contactinfo-rich.tpl

And remove this code:

{if $}
    <div class="block">
      <div class="icon"><i class="material-icons">&#xE158;</i></div>
      <div class="data email">
        {l s='Email us:' d='Shop.Theme.Global'}<br/>
       <a href="mailto:{$}">{$}</a>

Save the files, upload them back to your FTP! Done. All you need to do now is to make sure that you clear the cache to see the changes immediately. To do that follow instructions here How to clear cache in Prestashop 1.7?
