    Usually putting an empty text box in the sidebar area gets rid of all that slop :D Try that

    generally, to permanently remove a sidebar from a theme, one would remove the code <?php get_sidebar(); ?> from all theme templates; then adapt the css to stretch the content section over the available space.

    if you need help with the fomatting, please post a link to your site after you have edited teh templates.

    if you intend to update your theme when updates are available, start by creating a child theme for your customisations; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Also something else you can do is add a width to #sidebar in the CSS and that will stretch out the content area

    |------------------------
    | =Content/Sidebar
    |------------------------
    */
    
    #content,
    #sidebar {
    	width: 950px;
    	padding-top: 50px;
    }
    
    #sidebar {
    	padding-left: 60px;
    }

    alchymyth could you please tell me how to adopt the css to extend/expand the content area. Which file should I be looking to? My page.php is calling content.php and I've looked at both to try to figure out where the content width is.
    Also, how may I disable the leave a comment on the bottom? I seem to be unable to do this. Thanks!!

    @kellymelsted - these forums work better if you start a new thread and include a link to your site.
