    Is it possible to remove the default sidebar widgets Categories and Archive. Or even move them to the bottom. I can’t find these in the widget areas so must be part of the template somewhere. Can you advise?


    Ah… don’t worry I’ve found it. There is an area marked for deletion in sidebar.php which gets rid of these two widgets.


    I have the same problem but i can’t find where you remove them can you explain again please


    Hello. If you open up sidebar.php and sroll down, you should find this code:

    // <!– you can delete from here –> // ?>

    <div class=’box box_small’>


      <?php wp_list_cats(‘sort_column=name&optioncount=0&hierarchical=0’.$exclude); ?>


    <div class=’box box_small’>


      <?php wp_get_archives(‘type=monthly’); ?>



    // <!– until here –> //

    You just need to delete that whole block and save (and upload if doing by FTP) and that gets rid of those items.

    I hope that helps.


    thanks for your help


    hi i got rid of that html but now i get this error on the left side of my page:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home2/brymphot/public_html/wp-content/themes/display/sidebar.php on line 55

    is there any way to get rid of that and just make it a full page?
