    Hi there,

    I am a fairly new wordpress user, but I kind of worked my way around the responsive wordpress theme.

    However, I can't find a way of getting rid of the archive-widget on the page with all the posts. Here is the link:

    I would be grateful for any help - where I have to alter the code to get rid of it without destroying everything.

    Thank you very much!!

    In general, you can change widgets on the Widgets screen:


    Is that not working?

    Hi Wpyogi,

    thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately it is not working. I didn't put the archive widget into any of the pages, but it still appears on the one with posts. I guess I would have to alter one of the html/php or javascripts, but I am concerned that I would destroy something or that it could affect another page where I am using image widgets.

    Any idea on how I could solve this? I would be really grateful…

    Cheers, Dirgis

    There may be something specific to the theme, yes, and I'm not that familiar with it. I'd suggest visiting the theme's dedicated forums here:

    Hi again,

    the solution was fairly simply in the end:

    (Theme options - default layout)
    Just change the "Default Single Blog Post Layout"
    to "Full page (…)".

    Problem solved.

    For anyone with this problem who needs sidebars, remove or comment out the following code in sidebar.php

    <?php if (!dynamic_sidebar('main-sidebar')) : ?>
    		<div class="widget-wrapper">
    			<div class="widget-title"><?php _e('In Archive', 'responsive'); ?></div>
    					<?php wp_get_archives( array( 'type' => 'monthly' ) ); ?>
    		</div><!-- end of .widget-wrapper -->
    		<?php endif; //end of main-sidebar ?>

    This should fix the problem though archive shows if you don't have another widget in there.

    So would you create a sidebar-child.php file and then enter this code? Does that work? Or is it only css files that override like that?
