Home page with no sidebar


This has been a really helpful forum!

I was hoping you could help me change some things I could not find answers to.

  1. Remove right sidebar on homepage to look like post pages without sidebar layout.

  2. I’ve hidden the search box on the homepage, but I’d like to move the social menu to that exact location. Remove from the footer.

  3. I’ve input my copyright info into the footer. How can I remove the “Theme by Colorlib Activello” portion? Is that possible? I’ve seen previous posts where I can hide the entire footer, but I’d like to retain the copyright portion.

4.Feature Image automatically crops itself but when click on the post, the feature image does not open to full size, it retains the cropped version. How can I fix that?
If that’s not possible, the other option is; can I have the feature picture show on the home page but not in the actual post?


Update, I was able to remove social icons from footer, as well as hide the feature picture in the post.

But would still like to know about the other concerns and if its possible to have feature image (that was automatically cropped) on home page open up to full size within the post.

Also, I noticed when I change the accent color in the custom layout, it doesn’t change the color for the pages on the menu bar after I’ve clicked on it. How can I make them match?

Thank you.

Hi @vparadis,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

1. Remove right sidebar on homepage to look like post pages without sidebar layout.

If you have set your home page as static page then you can set that page layout to Full Width as shown in the attached screenshot.

If you are not using static home page then try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Activello Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

body.home .main-content-inner.col-sm-12.col-md-8 {
    width: 100%;
body.home div#secondary {
    display: none;

To help us keep support thread separates could you please create new separate threads for your other question here Activello - Colorlib Support Forum instead of asking it in your existing thread as it makes the thread messy and hard to read.

If you want to you can also add reference of this thread in your newly created thread.

We would be more than happy to help you on your new thread.

Best Regards,

Hi Movin,

Thanks for helping out! I’m not using a static page, the CSS code worked to remove the right side bar on the main page perfectly!

But its showing as full width now. How can I have it look like posts pages with the layout “no sidebar”. I’ve attached screenshots.

The first one is how my homepage looks now at full width. The second is a screenshot of a post page with no sidebar.

Kind regards,

Hi Movin,

I just read a new post someone else had about the homepage sidebar and was able to resolve my issue.

Thank you.

You are most welcome here :slight_smile:
