    Hello,

    I am using OfficeFolders 1.4 by Themocracy in my blog. I see Meta category and some links as shown below:

    Meta

    * Site Admin
    * Log out
    * RSS
    * Comments RSS
    * Valid XHTML
    * XFN
    * WP

    Can anybody let me know what this means, and how to customize/remove this widget.

    Thanks a lot!

    seenuFour,

    Check in the sidebar.php file to remove the meta information.

    Hi,

    You need to edit the sidebar.php file of your theme and remove the code which you want to be for META.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    The only meta code I see is :

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('blog_charset'); ?>" />

    I deleted this. I still see the meta widget.

    Can you guys tell me exactly what code should I delete in sidebar.php

    Thanks

    seenuFour,

    The code you erased should be in the header.php file. Please replace it. The code you are looking for typically resides in the sidebar.php file.

    Are you sure this is a widget? If so then check under Appearance > Widgets and remove it.

    I replaced the code back. Actually the default theme OfficeFolders 1.4 doesn't come with any widgets. When I click widgets in the dashboard, I don't see any widgets on the side.

    There is no meta widget showing under widgets. So I can't remove the meta category.

    Is there any other way that I can customize/delete this meta links that are showing right below Archives.

    Thanks

    seenuFour,

    Open the sidebar.php file and delete the following lines starting at 54:

    <li class="widget" id="meta"><h3><?php _e('Meta'); ?></h3>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_register(); ?>
    <li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
    
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('RSS'); ?></a></li>
    
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments RSS'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" title="<?php _e('This page validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional'); ?>"><?php _e('Valid <abbr title="eXtensible HyperText Markup Language">XHTML</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/"><abbr title="XHTML Friends Network">XFN</abbr></a></li>
    <li><a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="<?php _e('Powered by WordPress, state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform.'); ?>"><abbr title="WordPress">WP</abbr></a></li>
    
    <?php wp_meta(); ?>
    </ul>
    </li>

    This is the code for the Meta information.

    seenuFour,

    I see the problem, you are looking at the wrong file. The files to the theme are located under ( wp-content/themes/ ) not ( wp-admin ) then select your theme folder ( officefolders ) and open the sidebar.php file.

    An alternative and suggested way of alerting the code: Log into your WordPress site and visit "Appearance > Edit" then select "sidebar.php" from the right side options to make alterations.

    Check this file and delete the meta information.

    I have created an explanation on how to remove meta from newer wordpress version.

    Even simpler than that is to:
    1. Log into your account
    2. Go to Appearance > Widgets
    3. Add widgets to the sidebar on the right

    Meta is simply a default if that sidebar is empty of widgets.
