removing sidebar menus

    Hi,

    The only problem I'm having with my webpage is that I cannot remove the column on the right side (recent posts, archives, categories, and meta). For space issues, I want to get rid of these boxes (besides, I do not need them). Simply saying, I want to have just one column posts.. How can I get this?

    Thanks,
    Kim

  2. Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets

    Remove the widgets from your side bar area.

  3. I'm having the same problem..have removed all widgets from sidebar area and refreshed page, but they're still there....

    Just to be clear on two points:
    (1) removing all widgets from a sidebar is acconmplished by placing an empty text widget in the top of the sidbar. Open it, add anothing, click "save" and then click "close".

    For space issues, I want to get rid of these boxes (besides, I do not need them). Simply saying, I want to have just one column posts.. How can I get this?

    (2) If you think that removing widgets in a sidbear makes your theme change from being a 2 column theme to a one column theme and that you can blog in the sidebar that's not the case.

    If you want a one column theme see here > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/one-column/

    Even though you are using the Enterprise theme, I think you will benefit from reading what I just posted for @speechacousticslab who is using the MistyLook theme.

    I expand by saying that all themes have a default sidebar display. The display does not contain actual widgets. It's when we go here . Appearance > Widgets and install the widgets of our own choice that we override the default display.

    Enterprise is a 2-column Widget-ready theme. If you want a one column theme see here > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/one-column/
     

  6. I expand by saying that all themes have a default sidebar display.

    That's not correct: some themes don't have a sidebar at all, and some themes don't display a sidebar unless you add widgets.
