If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’d like to remove the entire “Most Recent Posts” from the lower section of the home page. The way this site will be used, that info is redundant and often conflicting. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.
You can customize the page layout by going to the Template Builder and selecting the Frontpage template. The last two elements should be the Horizontal Ruler and the Columns element. Just remove those two and Save all changes.
Thanks Devin. I think I wasn’t clear enough about what I wanted to do. I not only wanted to remove the Horizontal Rule and the text Most Recent Posts…I also want to remove the whole section of actual most recent posts. I’d like the Front Page content to end after the the News & Stuff groupings.
Open single.php and find this code
//show related posts if there are any
You should be able to do this by customizing the home page template. In the default Frontpage template, the elements are Horizontal Ruler and Columns. Expanding the Horizontal ruler would show that it has the title of Most Recent Posts and the Columns has columns set up to display posts. Removing these two elements should remove it from your front page.
If you are using a different template for the front page, it will be in that template instead.
Doing this removes the actual horizontal line and the words MOST RECENT POSTS, but it doesn’t remove the actual content from that section. I actually want to remove that whole content section from the front page. Is there a way I can send you a private link to the site so you can see what I’m asking about?
You can send the information to my email at DevinVinson (at) gmail.com. Make sure to include a link to this topic so that my spam filter doesn’t grab it :)
