    Just tried out the Oxygen theme with my site (great theme) and I’m trying to determine how to eliminate a few of the items on the Showcase template. Specifically:

    -Recent Articles
    -More Articles
    -Blogroll header
    -Meta section

    I’ve scanned through the forum, haven’t seen anyone yet who has mentioned this. Help? Thanks!

    Here is the showcase page on the blog:

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

    If you want to keep the search box in the sidebar, then go to Appearance > widgets and add the search widget to the secondary sidebar. What you are seeing right now is a sample display of widgets that show when you have not yet added any widgets to the sidebar. If you add a search widget, the other two will disappear.

    If you want the entire sidebar (search, blogroll and meta gone, add the following to your custom CSS at Appearance > Custom Design > CSS:

    .home #tertiary {
    display: none;
    }

    To get rid of the recent and more articles sections, add the following CSS:

    .home .recent-articles, .home .more-articles {
    display: none;
    }

    display:block;
    text-indent:9000px;
    width: 600px;
    height: 300px;
    }
