Wordpress as home page

How do I remove this area ?


this is setting


What theme are you using? Is your home page a custom template, or is it using one of the built-in page templates?

I’m using this theme:


I have this in my wordpress installation in hostgator

and …

my home page

You have to change the theme, you cannot remove that part because it is part of the theme. there are plenty of themes in wordpress with just homepage , with out the side bar which shows recent posts.


If you know CSS then You can easily off this section. You can use display none for remove these section.

If you are going to make any changes to the theme, you should really make a child theme instead. Twenty-fifteen is one of the themes that come shipped with a WordPress installation, and tends to be updated fairly regularly.

If you change the theme itself, any updates by WordPress will overwrite your changes and you will have to start all over again. On the other hand, if you don’t do the update, you leave yourself wide open to security vulnerabilities and risk your site.

Once you have made your child theme, people can show you how to customize your homepage so that it doesn’t have the sidebar on it.

where do I find themes in wordpress with just homepage , without the side bar ?

how do I search

Could you please post a link

Add this to your Custom > CSS

#sidebar {
	display: none;

How do I check sidebar has id as #sidebar ?

Viewing Page Source in the browser will tell you that.

Hi :slight_smile: I suggest You better to look for a free theme, Yes, the search may take a few days, but it’s worth it :slight_smile: And don’t be afraid to experiment, You have an empty website, so experiment and choose the best option for You. But in code it is better not to climb, it is not necessary.

I did that . but still same

here is the code // from view source
