Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing content from wordpress

  • Resolved kmclafferty


    I am very new to web design and I am trying to design a website for my small office. I would like to delete the blog content from the template that I got. How can I do that? Ex: get rid of:
    Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
    Also to remove the search button and the flickr photo box.
    Thank you!

  • You would have to tell us which template/theme you are using. Each one is constructed differently.

    It is the Titan theme. Thanks again!

    comment out or remove this bit from theme’s header.php

    <div id="follow">
          <div class="wrapper clear">
              <dt><?php _e('Follow:', 'titan') ?></dt>
                <dd><a class="rss" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"><?php _e('RSS', 'titan') ?></a></dd>
                <?php if ($titan->emailToggle() == 'true') : else : ?>
                  <dd><a class="email" href="<?php if ($titan->feedEmail() !== '') echo $titan->feedEmail(); else echo "#"; ?>"><?php _e('Email', 'titan') ?></a></dd>

    back up 1st

    There’s another way you could do it. Add the following line to the bottom of the style.css file:

    div#follow ( display: none; }

    It’s not as clean as solution as what samboll recommended, but it would save you from having to edit the template files, and it is easily reversible.

    Thank you both but somehow none of these worked 🙁

    Perhaps if you gave us a link to your site, we could take a closer look.


    hmmm…that works on my local test install

    I tried it twice and the website went down. If memory serves, when I tried to access the website following, it gave me an error #52. I cannot recall what the message was, however.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDIF in /home/content/42/6001242/html/wp-content/themes/titan/header.php on line 52

    What about the solution I gave you? Add this to the bottom of your CSS file. It cannot possibly cause your site to go down, since it does not involve editing the template files.

    #follow ( display: none; }

    No, it just didn’t change anything. I still have it in my css file but the Follow Twitter, Facebook, etc is still there.

    I have no idea why it’s not working. I can see the rule there in your CSS file; it’s formatted corrected and it does not appear to be commented out.

    Try moving it up in the file. Put it right underneath this line:

    @import url(“stylesheets/master.css”);

    I know what the problem is. You have a typo in the rule. You need to use curly brackets, not parentheses:

    div#follow ( display: none; }

    Change to:

    div#follow { display: none; }
