I am currently working on a theme that uses the Wordpress Customization API and I need to remove some pre-existing sections from the customization preview pane. Is there somewhere like a global variable holding an array of the sections perhaps (in true Wordpress style) I can unset the navigation section in particular?

Please see attached image for what I am talking about. I've circled it in red.

enter image description here


Just call remove_section method of the $wp_customize object:

add_action( 'customize_register', 'wpse8170_customize_register' );
function wpse8170_customize_register( WP_Customize_Manager $wp_customize ) {
    $wp_customize->remove_section( 'section-id-to-remove' );
  • Wow. I did not realise there was a remove_section method. I did some searching, but should have looked in the codebase. – Dwayne Charrington Jan 31 '13 at 22:16
