Removing Skills under About and linking content to URL in Projects section


First of all, congratulations on an absolutely terrific Wordpress theme. So simple to use even for a layperson like me (I do not have any coding knowledge, and am new to Wordpress too)! I am currently creating a website for my small business, a start-up. I tried a couple of other themes but ran into difficulties with them till I moved to Illdy a couple of days ago. I have been able to almost complete the website design using Illdy theme, which is so user-friendly and simple to use, very instinctive almost except in few areas which are a little confusing for someone new to this, like me. The video tutorials are also very instructive, helpful and easy to follow.

I have googled on the issues I have including on the Support Forum for Illdy, and have not been able to find a solution. Please help. I would appreciate your support very much.

  • I do not want to put any Skills in the About Section. If I leave the Percentages field blank in the Skills Widget section, when I visit my Site, I see a half line in that area which looks bad on an otherwise clean page. How do I remove this, please? Please find attached a screenshot.

  • Under Projects section, I wanted to add images, which if I click on, leads to the content on a hidden page not on the website. So basically I can’t point it to some other place on the website (e.g. #…). Perhaps in Pages or on the Blog section in Dashboard, but not visible as a link either on the frontpage of the website; or even on a Word page on my computer - if it is possible (may be a stupid question, but as I mentioned I am no expert! :slight_smile: ) Please advise. I tried adding a page and blog, but was not happy with the result for then it creates a link on the website itself, which one needs to click on to see the content. For now, as I was unsuccessful in resolving this, I have disabled the Projects section, but I would very much love to have this.

Thank you very much in advance for your help. Appreciate your time and patience with us!


Hello @daarty,

First of all, thank you for the kind words and for using our theme!

If I understand correctly, to delete the about skill bars you should add a blank text widget, otherwise the default content will fallback.

To have an image with a link please have a look here:

Similar to the first issue, you should add a text widget and use this content, with your URL and img src:

<a href="">
<img border="0" alt="W3Schools" src="logo_w3s.gif" width="100" height="100">

Let me know if I got it right and this is what you were looking for.


I’m trying to delete the skills bar. . For some reason my theme wont let me add a text widget. I would like to completely remove the skills bar but I’m not sure how. Please help.

Hello there,

In order to remove the skill bars go to Appearance > Widgets > FrontPage about sidebar and remove the skill widgets.

If that does not work, then you can use the following CSS code to remove the bars by going to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and pasting it there.

/*Remove skill bars*/
.skill {
    display: none;

Best Regards,
