Support » Fixing WordPress » Recent Five / Categories footer – how to remove it?

  • Resolved yelowpunk


    Hey all. I’ve been having this issue for some time, and just cannot get it on my own. The owner of the site is starting to get on me, and I don’t blame her.

    I am trying to remove the footer (?) of the page, that says Recent Five and Categories.

    This is what I’m trying to get rid of.

    I have deleted the get.footer line from every page and now understand that this is not a ‘footer’ per-se, but something else. I guess.

    Thanks all for taking the time to read this.

    Also, is there any one place I can put the footer tag so that each page rendered off wordpress will show it? In the Master-template page?

    I am using the CognitiveCombine WM (White Minimalism) 1.00 by

  • Not a single person here knows where this code exists or how to get rid of it?

    Don’t bump after 3 hours, it just annoys the helpers.
    No, nobody knows how to read code from a picture. You didn’t even give a link to the theme’s download page, not to mention your site. And in every decent text editor must be a search function to find what you are looking for.

    Yes, I agree with all those points. I’ve done a lot of support for many different clients for many different techs.

    Anyone intimately familiar with Wordpad knows the basic structure of the app, and when code renders and where.

    The search function does not give me anything applicable (to my knowledge, I don’t know PHP that well) and I feel that the function call for that piece is located in a different spot than the content that it holds — the entire point of a CMS system. Even though WP isn’t really a cms, it is an immensely powerful application with ability and scope for uses other than weblogs.

    The reason I didn’t put a link was because the site is not finished and unsecured, permissions are all 777ed out, pretty much, and quite frankly I’m a little ashamed of it. 🙂

    The theme I am using is from Cognitive Combine, and can be found on

    sorry for the impatience, I understand this is done on a volunteer basis. I’m extremely frustrated though. 🙁

    Everything is fine except this, and I really am this || close.



    I might be slow today… but couldn’t find a download link on that whole website. Did you download it from there?
    I am not interested in his ramblings but the download location 🙂

    When I said search I wasn’t referring to WP search. Just the plain old search function in any decent text/html editor to find a string or phrase or word in a doc or in a folder. No special PHP knowledge required.

    Since the theme author loves the Hemingway… I bet everything what is below the posts is in the sidebar.php.

    OMG it is TOTALLY in sidebar.php!!!


    Thank you very very very much.

    I don’t really remember where I downloaded it from, but I thought it was from

    So, what does Hemmingway have to do with Sidebar? As in, Ernest? :confoosled:

    thanks again for the help. I would never have gone to Sidebar.php to look for stuff when I had sidebars completely disabled. Or, thought I had them completely disabled.

    Will there be any ill effects if I just leave sidebar.php blank? Should I just comment it out instead?


    p.s. THANK YOU!

    Hemingway is a theme…
