Removing Information/Shortlink/Navigation from Right Sidebar?

  1. Hi all,

    Is there a way to remove the Information/Shortlink/Navigation boxes from the right sidebar of the Suburbia theme?

    I already have purchased the upgrade, but I'm not where this is a CSS issue or not.

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is fifthperiodlunch.com.

  2. I have the exact same problem.

  3. To hide the entire post meta block from the top right of posts in the Suburbia theme, including the information, shortlink, and navigation sections, try this:

    .meta {
        display: none;
    }
  4. Worked like a charm. As always, thanks so much.

    Is there a way to just leave the information portion of the meta in there?

  5. Yes, to leave just the information part of the meta in the Suburbia theme, you can selectively hide all the other parts. Here is an example:

    .meta-shortlink,
    .meta-navigation,
    .edit-link{
    	display: none;
    }
  6. So, the only way to hide this is to get an upgrade? I am loving this theme except for that one thing, and i can't afford the upgrade. Any advice?

    Hello there,
    Yes, the only way to "hide" anything on a WordPress.com blog theme is with a custom design upgrade and CSS editing. (I'm assuming your are referring to a WordPress.com blog as there is no blog linked to your username and you did not provide a link to one.)

  8. Rats.

    Yes, .com, where I have been happily blogging for many years and am just now noticing more and more things that I will have to pay for.

  9. The Custom Design upgrade is one of our paid upgrades, but it's worth it if you want to change things around and customize! :)

  10. Hello,
    I am using the Suburbia theme as a photo blog. I just used the code to hide the meta data (thanks for the help all!) but was wondering if it is possible to get rid of the sidebar completely so that my photos can expand into that area. Right now my photos are being compressed.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  11. I guess I am just trying to activate the full width template, but not quite sure how.

    Thanks.

    I see you've already added this to hide the meta info on single posts and pages:

    .meta {
    	display:none;
    }

    That hides just the meta info part. If you were to add something to the Appearance → Widgets → "Sidebar" area, then that stuff would fall over and appear below the main content area and look out of place. You can choose to hide the sidebar area or just remember that if you put anything in it later, it will show up below the content area for posts and pages and you may need to readjust spacing at that point.

    Here's an example of hiding all the right sidebar things and also expanding the content area to take up that space for Suburbia theme single posts and pages:

    .meta,
    .sidebar {
    	display:none;
    }
    
    #single {
    	width: 744px;
    }

    This is a slightly separate issue compared to the original post for this thread, so if you have further questions, please start a new thread. :)

  13. Thanks very much! It worked perfectly :)
