    Those are widgets. Some themes place widgets automatically when none are chosen. To remove them, simply place some blank textwidgets in the footer widget-areas in

    Hi ztig,

    It’s weird. I actually tried that from other threads and they still won’t go away. I placed blank text widgets in almost every field just now and they still keep showing up. Any suggestions?


    Since I don’t know the php config of your theme for this widgets area and can’t have access to your files, i’ll remove them with CSS

    #sidebar {
        display: none;

    If it dosen’t work try

    #sidebar {
        display: none !important;

    I encourage you to use a child theme for your customization or Jetpack Custom CSS

    Hi LebCit,

    Your first suggestion worked!! I also like the idea of child themes and Jetpack Custom CSS, I’m going to look into those. I’ve been struggling with this issue for a couple weeks, I post one thing on this forum and a day later I have an answer that works. This forum is great =)

    Also thanks to ztig for the original reply!

    Hello @chairsmodo

    You are most welcome !
    1- For child theme, I’ll recommand you to use Child Theme Wizard for simplicity purpose…
    Note that you’ll be able to remove this plugin, if you wish, after creating your child theme.
    2- For Custom CSS, you can take a look at the Custom CSS plugins if you don’t want to use Jetpack…

    Don’t hesitate if you have further questions

    SYA 🙂
