Remove Footer below

  1. Hello All,

    I've created a site "http://ablca.wordpress.com/" using the theme INove by NeoEase. There are 3 things I'm looking to change.

    1. The top left corner of the theme has a home icon. I can't seem to find this in the pages i've posted nor can I update anything on this page. I've created a separate home page as a result. How do I remove the home icon or update that icon page?

    2. At the bottom of this theme, there is a wordpress logo image along with "Blog at WordPress.com. Theme: INove by NeoEase". Is there a way of removing this completely?

    3.On the top right hand corner there is a RSS Feed. Is there a way I could remove this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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

  2. 1. You can't find it because it's not a link to a page such as those you can create in Pages > Add New (or edit in Pages > All Pages), it's just a link to your blog front (what in most themes would read "Home").

    "Nor can I update anything on this page. I've created a separate home page as a result." Please clarify what the issue is: you want to change the look of that menu link, or you want to change what your actual homepage displays?

    2. WP doesn't allow removing the credits.

    3. No, except if you have the paid Custom Design upgrade.

  3. Thank you for your feedback.

    1. Right now I have 6 pages that includes a HOME page. It does not look professional when people visit the site and click on the home icon and nothing shows up. This is why I want to remove it. If it can't be removed, can I update my information from my home page to the home icon page?

    2. I understand. Do all themes shows this in the footer?

    3. I see. Is there a way of relocating the RSS feed to another location (ie. bottom right of the page)?

    Thanks again for the feedback!

  4. Do all themes shows this in the footer?

    Yes even those in the VIP program (costs start at $ 20,000/year) must have the credits.

  5. You're welcome.

    1. By default, your blog front displays your latest posts. But you want it to display a static page you created. To do that, you go to Settings > Reading > "Front page displays", click the option "A static page", select the right page from the pulldown, click Save Changes.
    You'll need one or two other steps as well. Before I tell you about them: what does "nothing shows up" mean? you haven't published any posts yet, or you're not going to publish any posts at all?

    2. Yes, all wordpress.com themes. It's not a theme designer's idea, it's WP policy.

    3. Without the upgrade, no.

  6. Thank you very much for all the feedback!

    1. I have completed the steps you recommended. Now when I click the home icon, the information that is on the home page appears there. To answer your question, I do not want to publish and posts at all. This is why I wanted to remove that home icon all together. If I can make the home icon my static home page with my info, i'm okay with that. Then all I need to do is remove the home page?

    2. Thank you. got it.

    3. Thank you. got it.

    Thanks for the feedback.

  7. If you don't want to publish posts, then you need one more step only: remove the redundant "Home" tab from your top menu. But you can't do that directly: you need to create and activate a custom top menu that will include all the pages except that one. Details here:

  8. Hi justpi,

    Sorry, I'm struggling with this a little bit. I've created custom menus for all pages except for the home tab. The question is how can I place the home tab information in the home icon tab where posts are usually placed?

    Thanks!!

  9. As I said in my first reply, the house icon is a link to your blog front (and it's built into the theme). It will automatically link to the page you've titled Home if you set that page as your front in Settings > Reading.

    Now I'm worried about the plural in "I've created custom menus": you don't create custom menuS, you create one menu and add your five pages to it.

    All these would be easier to clear up if I could see your blog: it would be good if you could go to Settings > Privacy and temporarily switch to the middle option.

  10. Hi justpi,

    I've made the change you recommended. Now I have the home page content on the blog front however still have the home page? If I delete the home page, I will lose the blog front with the info.

    You're right, I did not set up menuS, but only one and have added the pages to it.

    I've also lifted the privacy setting.

  11. Hi Justpi,

    Thank you soo much, I just figured that if I remove the home page from the menu, I would lose the data but I DIDN'T!! Amazing!! I've been struggling on this for some time. With your help this would not have been possible. Thanks again!!

  12. The "Home" label in your top menu is just a link to your welcome page: you don't lose the page if you remove the link (you'll only lose the page if you go to Pages > All Pages and trash it).

    So you should have done exactly what I had already said: "create and activate a custom top menu that will include all the pages except that one". Go to Appearance > Menus, click the arrow to open the module of that page, click Remove, click Save Menu and you're done.

    But before you do that, let's get back to your other questtions:
    All wordpress.com blogs are required to display the footer credits, but most of them don't have that huge W logo. And the RSS link is meaningless if you aren't going to publish posts. Are you sure you'll stick with iNove? (If you switch to a different theme, your custom menu might be ok as it is now, or it might need to be a little different.)

  13. Oops! Sorry, I had left the browser on this page, then came back and typed the above without refreshing, so I didn't see your additional post.

  14. No problem. Yes you make a good point with the huge W logo however, I really do like this theme. Does the huge W look that bad? As for the RSS, you're right, I don't need that but what can I do. I can get it removed but would have to pay for an upgrade right? How much does an upgrade cost?

  15. See dashboard sidebar > Store.

  16. As for the RSS, you're right, I don't need that but what can I do.

    You can remove the display of The RSS icon but not the feeds. All WordPress blogs have multiple feeds.
    Appearance > Theme Options
    iNove Theme Options
    Feed __Show the feed reader list when mouse over on feed button.

  17. How do i remove the display of the RSS. I understand all the feeds would still need to come through. I'm more concerned about seeing the RSS icon

  18. Thanks Justpi....i will look into the upgrade

    How do i remove the display of the RSS. I understand all the feeds would still need to come through. I'm more concerned about seeing the RSS icon

    I use this theme on one of my blogs and ai already provided the instructions for disabling the display of the RSS icon here > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/remove-footer-below?replies=18#post-814382 Don't forgat to click "save changes" after disabling the display.

  20. @timethief

    For some reason your link takes me back to this forum?

  21. You can remove the display of The RSS icon but not the feeds. All WordPress blogs have multiple feeds.
    Dashboard > Appearance > Theme Options
    iNove Theme Options
    scroll down and locate this:
    Feed __Show the feed reader list when mouse over on feed button.
    Don't forget to click "save changes" after disabling the display.

  22. As I wrote in my first reply, you can't remove the RSS link in iNove without the Custom Design upgrade.

  23. Thank you all for all the advice and feedback. I will work towards making the final site!
