Remove "syndicate" from sidebar. (7 posts)

    A tiny problem driving me nutty. I would like to remove the word "Syndicate" from my sidebar. I am using the theme Blue Horizon, and yes, I've messed with it quite a bit. No, I have no clue what I am doing. I have added RSS feeds using the plugin "Subscribe Me". I have lots of feed readers, and have no need for the word "Syndicate". Which is off to the left too far anyway. What am I missing? You can see the site here:

    Two thing:

    - Your site has a few validation errors, which make the sidebar look strange in my browser.
    - Take a look at line 52 of the Subscribe Me plugin file.

    open up your theme's sidebar.php in your editor and delete this:

    <li><div class="tile sem_subscribe_me">
    <div class="tile_header"><h2>Syndicate</h2>
    </div>

    which can be found right under your google ad code

    save and re-upload

    Ladydelaluna, that code isn't in his sidebar.php. It's being generated by the Subscribe Me plugin.

    Thanks. Wow, lots of errors, you are right. If only I knew how to fix them....Oh well, I'll take them one error at a time and figure it out. That's the fun of learning, right?
    or maybe I'll copy over the original sidebar and start again.

    Thank you for looking at it. I appreciate it. I'll check out line 52 of the subscribe Me plugin.

    Well, I did get the word "Syndicate" to go away, but not all the dots in front of each item. I use Firefox, and occassionally Netscape, and the sidebar looks OK there. But when i try Internet Exployer, I see what you mean - the side bar wanders all over the page. I'm going to go through the errors one by one and figure it all out.

    Thanks again.

    Try adding this to your themes style.css file. It should get rid of the dots.

    tile_body ul { list-style-type: none; }
