Disable default widgets


Question

Posted · Report post

I'm using a child theme based on base theme.

Is it possible to disable the default widgets completely?

Here's the problem: I've encountered some errors / conflicts with widgets. I presume it's a plugin problem. I'm trying to tack down the conflict.

Some of the widgets I've set up have occasionally disappeared. That's a small annoyance. It's a big annoyance because when they disappear, the default widgets show up in their place.

Hi,

Login to your Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Website Setup, scroll down until you see "Remove Default Sidebars When Empty".

Thanks, I did that. There are also default widgets in the footers. Should that take care of them too?

You may want to use the plugin Widget Logic which will help you disable all default widgets including the footer.
