I just started my WordPress site and installed the theme "Imbalance". I'm super new so forgive me if my terminology is incorrect! Anyway, the sidebar is on the top and lists "Archives" and "Categories" which I don't really have a use for in that position (maybe as a widget off to the side of located on another page and consolidated...that's another topic). I'd basically like to get rid of them for now. Just so you know I want my website to be used as a blog and portfolio for my artwork.
I googled this problem a billion times and got an answer that I need to modify the sidebar.php file. I found this within the code: /* Widgetized sidebar, if you have the plugin installed. */
I don't know if I have the plug-in installed, so I went to the widgets tab and keep messing around with them, dragging and removing them everywhere but the sidebar stays the same. Any ideas? thanks so much!
