  1. Hi I don't use widgets and I wonder how I can remove the thematic sidebar and how I can load my new sidebar (without the nead of the widget).

    For removing the sidebar I found : add_filter('thematic_sidebar', 'remove_sidebar');
    but I don't know how to load my code for my new sidebar.

    Thanks for your help

  2. Hi Henri,

    the easiest way is to copy sidebar.php to your child theme's directory and edit this file.

    The elegant solution would be:

    // Remove Pre-set Widgets
    $preset_widgets = array (
    	'primary-aside'  => array(),
    	'secondary-aside'  => array()
    );
    update_option( 'sidebars_widgets', $preset_widgets );
    
    function my_sidebar() {?>
    
    My HTML Code for the sidebar.
    
    <?php
    }
    add_action('thematic_abovemainasides', 'my_sidebar');

    in your child theme's functions.php.
