Support » Theme: Independent Publisher » How do I remove these widgets?

  • Resolved thienan1nguyen


    My website is here.

    I recently switched to this theme and made a child theme.

    My issue is as follows: If you scroll to the bottom of the page there is: search bar, archives, and meta.

    I went to widgets to remove them and none appear to be active yet they appear on my site.

    Any suggestions?

    So I found that the code was coming from the parent theme sidebar.php

    Putting a comment<!– –> around the code seems to do the trick. However, there must be a better way. Plus it feels to be poor form to edit the parent theme like this and still have this massive comment in my site’s code.

    @thienan1nguyen When you don’t have any widgets, WordPress automatically loads a default set of widgets. You can disable that by simply adding an empty Text widget, with nothing in it.

    thanks for the quick reply. Really love the theme! keep up the work.

    This solved my issue too.

    Kinda sucks that WordPress does that.
