remove "recent articles" and "more articles" from oxygen showcase

  1. I'm testing out the oxygen theme, and would like to remove the "recent articles" and "more articles" sections from the homepage (for which I'm using a showcase template). Is there a way for me to do that? Would I need to purchase the custom design upgrade?


    The blog I need help with is

  2. I forgot to include the url!



  3. Just had the same problem!

    The problem is, when you remove everything from the sidebars, they default to the widgets you see on your blog -- even though you've taken them out of the widgets sections.

    The solution is, as soon as you add your desired widgets, the unwanted widgets disappear.

    The rub is, you can't have 'blank' sidebars.

  4. I think my sidebars are ok, although I'm still fiddling with them a bit. I'm wondering about the area directly below the featured post slider.


  5. Oh, sorry. Now, that, I do not know. I don't know that you can.

    Perhaps you can play with the page template, and which page is for posts/home?

    Good luck

  6. I guess what I need to know as someone who has almost no experience with css, is whether or not it's possible to modify the css (via custom design upgrade) to remove elements (like "recent articles") from the template.

    If it can't be removed all together, I would settle for being able to rename it. But if I can't get rid of that text, then I can't use this (otherwise awesome) template.

    Anyone have advice for me?

  7. OMG, I think I got it! So, I'm experimenting with the custom CSS editor (in preview, haven't bought it yet), and by adding the code below, I removed the whole block under the slider:

    #primary {
    display: none
    #tertiary {
    display: none

    High five! Hope this helps someone!

  8. So, in case anyone else ever reads this, I have an update. The code above removes the "recent articles" and such from the showcase template (home page in my case) but also removes the primary content from every page on the blog. To edit the showcase template only, the code should look like this:

    #primary {

    #tertiary {

    Like I said, I'm an absolute beginner with css :-)

  9. Hi alicedutton,

    Thank you so much for the code.. I did that and I was able to delete "recent articles" and "more articles" from the showcase page..

    It also Removed 'Secondary Sidebar', how can I have the secondary sidebar back?



  10. Hi, yes this part:
    #tertiary {<br /> display:none;<br /> }

    removes the secondary side bar. But if you want it back, you'll have to do some work repositioning it, because once you take out the "recent articles" block, the secondary sidebar floats left.

    Hope this helps!
