How to Remove blog list and "Leave a reply" section ?

  1. Just starting with WordPress.com. All I want so far is just a website, NOT a blog. Can I remove the right sidebar that lists blog history, and also the "Leave a Reply" section at the bottom? If so, how do I do that, and where can I find the answer to similar questions in the help/support information? Thanks !!!

    The blog I need help with is xcrooked.wordpress.com.

  2. The theme you have chosen does not have a theme option of removing sidebars. See here to choose a theme that does have optional sidebars. > Sidebars and other widget areas: number and position

    When making a theme choice for a website style format it's best to choose on that also has a top horizontal menu. Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and custom links in your custom menu as well.

  3. This page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
    We can also overide the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page.
    When we close comments a phrase like "comments closed" or a similar phrase will appear and it can only be removed by CSS editing after purchasing a custom design upgrade.

  4. Thank you so much for your response. I will be trying out your instructions and suggestions in the next few days. Thanks again.

  5. You're welcome and best wishes. :)
