Categories and Archives – disable ?

  • Author
  • #1213146

    I can’t seem to be able to delete the Categories and Archives that are displaying on the left hand side of my blog.
    I’ve been trying for hours, and I can’t seem to be able to figure it out, and it’s driving me crazy now.
    Could you please please please help me out ?

    The blog I need help with is



    Go here > Appearance > Widgets and remove them. If you don’t want any widgets at all then install a text widget and add no title or content. Click to open, click “save” click “close”.


    Hello ! Thansk for your answer.
    This inly works for the widget on the right side of my blog.
    Its seems that whatever I do, the ones on the left side stay there…



    The right sidebar on Oxygen is the secondary sidebar, and the left one is the primary sidebar. So if you don’t want those items in the left sidebar, you go to Appearance > Widgets and add the widgets you prefer to “Primary Sidebar”.


    Hey justpi, thank you for helping out !
    Unfortunatly, I emptied the entire primary sidebar, and there are still the category and archives, on the left…
    I really don’t understand :(
    I only put widgets on the secondary, because I only want them on the right. But still those two on the left appear, from I can’t figure out where

    Put a blank text widget into the primary sidebar. No title no content.
    edited to say that doing so will clear the left sidebar of any other widgets, and I’m assuming you want it blank?

    this is what timethief said above

    This article from justpi might explain what is going on:



    After reading this article, notice that in my previous reply I didn’t say anything about emptying the sidebar: like timethief, I said add the widgets you prefer.


    Justpi, you are right.

    1tess, that worked perfectly !! Thanks :)


    Ps : timethief, I just figured out what you were saying, and it works perfect.

    Thanks for your help everyone ! You guys are amazing :)
