    Hi Jason,
    I just want to remove the social icons completely from the homepage. Is this an easy fix. I’m pretty new at php, so go easy on me. Btw I remember when there was only 10 pages of help topics here.

    Hello,

    You could probably just do it with CSS. —

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the overriding edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    If you inspect your site, you’ll see that WordPress adds some handy classes to the <body> tag of the page. So, for example, (depending on your setup) you might have a class called “home” there you could utilize. Then, you’d just inspect the social icons, pick a class on the social icons and set it to display: none;.

    .home .social-media { display: none; }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
