I want to remove the “Meta” section on the right-hand side of my blog. I searched the help topics for an article on how to do this. I found one & tried what it said to do. It said to find the Edit index.php page. I did that. Then it said to remove the <li id=”meta”> lines. I didn’t find these exact lines, but I did find lines that had “meta” in it. I removed those lines. I think I’ve made a big mistake! The “Meta” section is still on my blog, and I have no idea what I removed. I have 2 questions:
1) How can I remove the “Meta” links on my blog (I am using the Default presentation style, if that makes any difference)
2) How can I undo the edit I made to the Index.php thing
I AM VERY NEW TO THIS — which I’m sure is obvious. Please help with very simple directions. Thank you very much!
Open sidebar.php and look for something similar to:
<li><h2>Meta</h2> <ul> <?php wp_register(); ?> <li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li> <li><a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" title="This page validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional">Valid <abbr title="eXtensible HyperText Markup Language">XHTML</abbr></a></li> <li><a href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/"><abbr title="XHTML Friends Network">XFN</abbr></a></li> <li><a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="Powered by WordPress, state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform.">WordPress</a></li> <?php wp_meta(); ?> </ul> </li>
Either comment it out or remove it.
Please backup 1st…and restore whatever file you messed with.
Thank you very much! I do not know where to find sidebar.php, but I will diligently look for it before asking for help with this.
Can you tell me how to restore the file I missed with? I have no idea how to do that. I’d appreciate help with this.
The Meta remedy worked. Thank you! You have no idea how good it feels to be able to learn how to do some of these things. As a newbie, I feel so dumb at times. I appreciate the help.
