  • Resolved razbregrll


    I have the blog using the theme from I just need to remove the blogroll and the categories listing from the right hand side. I would like to keep the right sidebar for widgets but if I can’t no big deal. I have been through all the code in the theme and cannot find where to pull it out. I have some php and css experiance. I have been searching for a while and have found that someone mentioned to put my own widgets inthe sidebar and they will remove these ones – but that does not work, it only adds to the sidebar but the blogroll and the categories still stay there. Any help would be GREATLY apprecaited!

    I actually decided to try and delete the decoded footer.php file and it finally disappeared. That was the last place i would have thought to look!

    Can you elaborate on how you did this?

    My site is (don’t make fun, still in the embryonic stages), and I would love to eliminate BlogRoll.

    I use the LightWord theme.

    Any advice on how to ditch that? It tried renaming it but the changes didn’t take place. Of course, the changes were made in the links area on wordpress, not in the themes .css file. I don’t know anything about .css so any instruction would need to be writen for the common idiot =)


    I also wanted to remove the blogroll, archive, recent posts and admin from the sidebar. I figured it out, so here goes..

    They were in 2 sections called sidebar_left and sidebar_right.
    My theme had separate php files for both these in the editor – sidebar_left.php and sidebar_right.php.

    In sidebar.php, I simply deleted these 2 lines :

    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH."/sidebar_left.php");?>
    	<?php include(TEMPLATEPATH."/sidebar_right.php");?>

    So now the sidebar code no longer includes them.
    That’s it.
