  • I am using the WP-Creativix theme.

    I was wondering how I can remove the “Latest Articles” section from my homepage? It is in the section just above the footer.

  • Have you tried going to:

    Dashboard >> Appaearance >> Widgets

    Now on the right hand side you will see an item called: Recent Articles or “Recent Comments”

    You need to drag it all the way to the bottom of the screen and drop it in a box where it says Inactive Widgets.

    That is all to it as far as I am aware.

    Good luck.


    I am having the same problem as Rachel (cannot remove the “Latest Articles” section), and there is no active widget on my site.
    Could anyone help me please?

    I removed the “Latest Articles” section manually from the Main Index Template, by using the theme Editor.

    I have the same issue. I love the theme but would love to be able to replace the ‘Latest Articles’ section with a member login box. When I uploaded the theme I thought it would be a simple widget move as it is on the other post/pages. I’m not confident with code, so the theme editor scares me.

    I know very little about this stuff so try this at your own risk, but I removed the following code from the Main Index Template and got rid of “Latest Articles” that way.

    <div class=”latest-posts”>
    <h2>Latest Articles</h2>
    <h3>Latest Articles from the Blog</h3>
    <ul class=”latest-posts”>



    while (have_posts()) : the_post();


    <li id=”latest-post-<?php the_ID();?>”>” title=”<?php the_title();?>”><?php the_title();?><span class=”date”>Published <?php the_time(get_option(‘date_format’)); ?> at <?php the_time(get_option(‘time_format’));?></span>

    <?php endwhile;?>


    Hi Thursy. I have used your code to take off the Latest Articles section, however what code do I add for say an about us page to now be seen there or simply make it two columns? Anyone?

    Having the same problem – removed the latest articles with same method, but now there is a huge empty “space” in that area…
    I’m not too confident with php, but is there a way to edit the main index php so that instead of the latest articles, it shows another page, for example about us?

    Help would be great!


    Hi, Similar question as kmk2012. I removed “Latest Articles” and would like to expand one page column to the entire width of the page.

    Thanks in advance!

    Did anyone figure this out? I’d like to show 3 posts along the bottom of the site. I’ve successfully removed the “Latest Articles” but can’t fill the hole.

    Hi, you can adjust the width of your featured posts by changing the width property under .featpost in Style.php. I hopes that helps.


    You say you removed code from the main index template- What is the file name and what folder is it in.

    I’ve tried searching for “latest-posts” in my public_html files and can’t find it.

    gracewing – do NOT modify files in your theme or WP – you will likely cause major problems if you do not know what you are doing. If you need help, you need to start your own thread .
