You can create a variable, which can be accessed only on your home page and check if it exists - so load one fotter, if not - load another.

Create a new footer controller, a new footer view and new footer language files, let's call them footer_home
Best way is to copy and adjust the contents of the current ones:

Code: Select all

in catalog/controller/common/home.php you change the footer construction call from

Code: Select all

$data['footer'] = $this->load->controller('common/footer');

Code: Select all

$data['footer'] = $this->load->controller('common/footer_home');
