Add below code in your CMS page > Design > Layout Update XML

<referenceContainer name="footer-container" remove="true" />

Clear Cache. It will remove Footer from Specific CMS page where you add above code.

  • This should work, was just about to post this solution.

In backend, Content -> Pages -> Edit the right page -> tab "Design", field "Layout Update XML".

<referenceContainer name="content">
    <referenceBlock name="block_footer_candidio_sec" remove="true" />

Write me if you have any issues.

  • no its not working :(
