    How do I remove/hide it? It's the one at the bottom with forum topics.

    You want to edit your theme and remove:

    <a class='rsswidget' href='http://www.animegerad.com/community/index.php?act=rssout&id=4' title='Syndicate this content'>
    <img style='background:orange;color:white;border:none;' width='14' height='14' src='http://animegerad.com/wp-includes/images/rss.png' alt='RSS' />

    You will probably find the code in your sidebar.php, open with a text editor like notepad to edit then reupload.

    Or if you dont like the idea of editing the theme you can make a transparent rss.png and upload it overwriting the current one.

    Hope this helps

    Kind of related to this, how do I edit the RSS widget to pick up the feeds favicon instead of the RSS image?

    The easiest way is to download the feeds favicon, edit it so its the same size as the current rss image and when saving it choose the same file type as the current rss image and file name.

    Then upload it overwriting the origional rss image with your new one.

    If you don't want to mess with the default-widgets.php and have to edit it every single time you upgrade your WordPress installation, you can add these lines to your theme's css file:

    a.rsswidget img {
    	display: none;

    and the little RSS icon will be gone forever! :-)

    Audiowave's advice worked a treat!
