  • rabbifink


    Hi All,

    I would like to provide my own widget for RSS subscription and not be locked into the default RSS in the theme.

    I would rather not have both (my RSS widget) and the default RSS widget.

    How can I remove the default RSS subscribe?

  • Sounds like your “default widget” is part of the theme, assuming you can’t select and remove it from your widgets panel.

    Look for it’s code in the sidebar.php file or something similar in your theme editor. If you’re not sure what you’re doing with the php, have someone who is rip it out for you, it should be very easy for an experienced coder to do it. (Perhaps for only $10 on rentacoder)

    Hope that helps!




    I am gonna need to go with rentacoder, cuz its all greek to me!

    Unless someone using PrimePress theme knows what to do???



    OK, here goes;

    Using a FTP client

    in sidebar.php -> remove line

    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/subscribe.php'); ?>

    Now, if you leave it like this the border (top) of the sidebar is still 1px but it looks as if it is thicker. So, to change this edit the template from within the dashboard. Search for..

    #pp-sidebars {
    	border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
    	border-left: 1px solid #ccc;
    	border-right: 1px solid #ccc;

    Change border-top to 0px

    #pp-sidebars {
    	border-top: 0px solid #ccc;
    	border-left: 1px solid #ccc;
    	border-right: 1px solid #ccc;

    Instead of making this change in the stylesheet, make it in the custom.css by adding body.custom and then the new code. This will preserve it when the theme is updated.

    I just pasted this in custom.css:

    body.custom #pp-sidebars {
    border-top: 0px solid #ccc;
