    I am trying to remove the side column on my site that has every page listed, archives, categories, wordpress, and subscribe. I just want to have a cleaner look and for the only access to those is through the menu. Any tips? here is a screenshot :

    You have to create a new WordPress page template and remove the sidebar from that particular template. More information here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates

    Make sure you make a backup of what you currently have before making any changes, just in case.

    remove the side column on my site

    go through all templates of your theme, and remove the call for the sidebar, probably <?php get_sidebar(); ?>;
    then adjust the css to stretch the content into the available space.

    for more detailed suggestions, please post a link to your site.
