    I’m setting up a new blog with the Balance theme, and after a┬ádisastrous┬ástart where I managed to stuff up the functions.php and had to uninstall and reinstall WordPress, I’m now travelling along nicely (and with much more care!)

    I want to reduce/eliminate the space under the header/menu on the home page. I’m not using the featured left and right widget areas, and I wonder if this is why I have the space there? (Website is at if you need to have a look at what I mean.)

    Do I have to deregister those widget areas? I’m scared of heading into functions.php again! I know I should be editing all of this locally, but it all seems a bit complicated – I have NO coding experience and I’m learning as I go. Which is fun, but dangerous.




    Look for this in the style.css. You can hide the code:

    #home-featured {
        background: url("images/gray-texture.jpg") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
        margin: 0 0 60px;

    add this to it:

    display: none;

    This way if you ever decide to use it – just remove that one line.



    BRILLIANT! Thank you so much.



    You’re welcome. I’ll close this now.
