Hello,

 

A while ago I migrated a new site I was working on from Platform Pro to Pagelines Framework. It has still not officially launched and it was abandoned for a while. Finally getting back to it, and am discovering weird stuff.

 

I can't seem to get rid of the default WP widgets (calendar, archives, categories) from my sidebar widgets. They are not located in any of my sidebar areas at all. Not sure why they are appearing. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Well firstly you should update. Latest Framework is 2.4.4. and WordPress is 3.7.1

 

You should always keep up to date as a lot of updates are security fixes.

 

Anyway as for the widgets, if none are set then it uses a default set of widgets, if you add one to the sidebar, the defaults should disappear.

Thanks Simon! Crossed your email with my message. Been a while since I worked on this site, so yes, updating the software is next on my list. Thanks.

Hello,

 

I checked the "Site Options > Website Setup tab > Hide sidebar when empty..." and it seemed to work, but ONLY when I put an empty text widget in the sidebar. I don't want an empty text widget as it's screwing up the code. When I remove the text widget, it's placing "Add a widget to your sidebar module"... how can I get rid of this? I want an empty sidebar on some pages, that just has background color, but not content.

 

When I uncheck the option, I get the Categories, Archives, etc. which I definitely don't want.

 

Thanks,

Antonella
