iNove WordPress template – hide east and west sidebars

December 29th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Thanks to NeoEase,  I’ve started the site design of this new site from the iNove theme available from the WordPress Theme pages.

Out-of-the-box there is the capability to add widgets to the separate North, East, South and West sidebars or hide the sidebar’s from all pages. However, for my layout I preferred to lose the “split” East and West sidebar’s altogether.

Just in case anyone out there is after the same thing, this is how I did it!

  1. Go to Admin – Appearance – Editor within WordPress and select the iNove theme to edit if not shown
  2. Edit the sidebar (sidebar.php) file within the right  Template column
  3. Scroll down through the code and cut the code between end of the north sidebar and the start of the south – should be around 36 lines of code
  4. Extract of what’s left is shown below

Good luck – let me know if this works for you too

PS Great work NeoEase!

Code left after cutting east and west sidebars from sidebar.php

<?php endif; ?>
</div>
<!-- sidebar north END -->
<!-- Center sidebar containing EAST and WEST div's was here -->
<!-- sidebar south START -->
<div id="southsidebar"> <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') ||
 !dynamic_sidebar('south_sidebar') ) : ?>
