How to remove Archives on the homepage of WordPress? (3 posts)

    The "Archives" shows the dates on the homepage of my blog. I am using the default theme of My WordPress 2.9.2.

    They are useless and cause confusion for visitors. How to remove them totally?

    I know it is the sidebar.php file. However, I do not know which sentence controls the "Archives".

    Thank you.

    the sidebar in the theme is 'dynamic',
    that means that the 'widgets' that you see when you first install wordpress, are hardcoded placeholders.

    if you go to:
    'admin' 'appearance' 'widgets'
    and drag the widgets you want to have into the sidebar -

    then the 'placeholders' should disappear.

    just fill the sidebar with only the widgets you would like to have.
