Support » Fixing WordPress » How to remove default links

  • HI there,

    Unfortunately I am still looking for a new website coder to do all my WP fixes & xhtml/CSS coding, so until I find someone, I have to do these things myself : (

    How does one remove all the default links on the right nav:

    Entries RSS
    Comments RSS

    I also need to know how to rename the word “category” to “topics”

    And how do I get rid of the “powered by WP in the footer?

    It’s my own shared server.

  • Which theme are you using?

    As the answers are theme dependable.

    Do you have any widgets set up? As you may have the meta widget in your sidebar. And if you don’t then the theme is just showing some default options. So adding a widget to the sidebar will customise it and override the current default settings.

    Where is the word Category being displayed?

    Again depending on the theme there may be an option in the theme options to add your own footer text otherwise you need to open the footer.php file in your theme and manually modify the text.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    I just realized that when I removed the commenting, it removed all the side navs too.

    I guess when I get someone to work on it they should know how to put the nav back.

    No theme yet, I’m using the default just to get the domain live with a list people can signup to.

    I still do need to know how to remove the Powered by WP footer. I tried to do it based on people’s suggestions here & I either deleted too much or too little & there was an error 27, so I thank gawd figured out how to put it back.

    Thank you once again : )


    On the twentyeleven theme:

    Open footer.php


    <div id="site-generator">
    	<?php do_action( 'twentyeleven_credits' ); ?>
    	<a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( '', 'twentyeleven' ) ); ?>" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'twentyeleven' ); ?>" rel="generator"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentyeleven' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>

    Replace with:

    <div id="site-generator">
    	Some Text

    Or remove that block completely (not recommended) as you may want to use it later.
