    Hello to Everyone! This is my first post. I appreciate whatever help you-all can provide.

    Anyways, in the header there is a small "About Me" area which corresponds to the page "About Me," which I have created. The link to that sits on the right margin, so I don't want or need it below the blog title up above. Any way to remove it?

    Thank you for your help!

    In thinking about this a little more, essentially what I want to do is to write "Pages," but have them appear only in the right margin, and not in the header section. Does that make sense? So for example:


    BLANK SPACE ---->About Me

    Can someone help?

    Does it usually take a while to have a question answered here? Sorry for my impatience, I am really in a bind to solve this problem...

    Would really appreciate someone's help!

    Thank you.

    I have also asked for help on the forums, but they are not experts in Thematic. One of the folks over there suggested the following:

    Didn't test this but might try deleting this code in your wp-content/themes/thematic/library/extensions/header-extensions.php script

    <?php wp_page_menu('sort_column=menu_order') ?>
    Will this work? I am not finding this on my blog's dashboard options under Thematic. Do I have to go into cPanel to make these changes?

  5. Hi,

    most of us do have a regular job and life beside our life with and for Thematic :)

    Guess you're talking about the menu .. in this case .. install the pageMash plugin and hide the pages you don't like in your menu.

    Hello Chris - I apologize for my impatience.

    Basically, what I want is to be able to write a page titled "About Me," or "More Resources," or etc. and publish it. When I do that, it appears in the right margin under "Pages." But it also appears at the top of the blog under the blog title. I only want these pages to appear on the right margin. Will pageMash accomplish that for me?

    Chris, I tried the pageMash plugin, but it removes the pages from both the header area as well as the right margin. I want the pages in the right margin only, but I want the header to be "clean." Can you offer another suggestion? Surely there is a bit of code that can be added or removed to achieve this?

    Thank you very much.

    It sounds as if removing the access menu will achieve what you want. Chris wrote about it in this post:

    Thank you for trying to help me. I attempted to insert this code directly into my theme via my Wordpress blog (I am not interested in setting up a child theme). However, it is not working. Could someone please explain where the code goes? Does it go at the beginning, the end?
    Chris said: you can either use #access {display:none} in your child theme's style.css or if you want to remove it completely add the following code to your child theme's functions.php:

    // remove thematic_access()
    function remove_access() {
    add_action('init', 'remove_access');

    .. and the menu in the header is gone.

    What I want to do is insert one of the two codes above directly into my theme's functions.php area or the style.css area. Surely this is do-able?

    Thanks again for trying to help me, I appreciate your time.

    I solved this as follows:


    // Create #access
    // In the header div
    function thematic_access() { ?>
    <div id="access">
    <div class="skip-link">"><?php _e('Skip to content', 'thematic'); ?></div>
    <?php wp_page_menu('sort_column=menu_order') ?>
    </div><!-- #access -->
    <?php }

    from header-extensions.php.

    header-extensions.php. is found via cPanel, not through the blog dashboard!
