Theme: Resposive

I have added "Widget Context" and has set it to show a widget only on the start side. This works perfectly BUT on all other sides there shows a default widget "Home Widget 1" with a default text.How do I remove the default widget? /Torbjorn

What is "Theme: Resposive"? Is this a typo or is it the theme name? Please also always add all info + all links. – kaiser Dec 12 '12 at 12:36

You have to change the sidebar.php. In there, the default Sidebar main-sidebar is called.

If no Widgets are registered in this Sidebar, the fallback function shows a monthly Archive.

You have got two possibilities:

  • Register a Widget for the Main Sidebar
  • Remove the Fallback Function from sidebar.php. In this case, it would look like this:

    <div id="widgets" class="grid col-300 fit">
    <?php responsive_widgets(); // above widgets hook ?>
        <?php dynamic_sidebar('main-sidebar'); ?>
    <?php responsive_widgets_end(); // after widgets hook ?>
    </div><!-- end of #widgets -->

Please keep in mind that this theme has a lot of different Sidebars - so you may have to change all of them, or register the correct Widgets for each Sidebar.

When I remove all about "Home Widget 1 !" it disappears totally but I want it to appear only on the start page. I have in "Widget Context" checked it to only show on the start page but then the default home-widget-1 appears on alpa other pages. – Torbjorn Dec 12 '12 at 14:10

Is there anyway I could configure widgets for one page at the time? – Torbjorn Dec 12 '12 at 15:28
You can add meta fields to your pages, defining which sidebar you are using there, and making a switch in the template. If you want a different Sidebar on the home.php you have to specify it there. – fischi Dec 12 '12 at 16:40
