    Hi guys,
    How do i remove archive menu on the side bar?
    I don't want it to show archive with month display under it because i am not planning to add more post to it.
    I can't remove it through "widget".
    Thanks.

    How you mean you can't remove it from widget zone ? It is hardcoded ? Which template you use ?

    If it's hardcoded try editing the sidebar.php file. Is theme widget enabled?

    sorry i dont know the meaning of hardcoded.
    in widget menu , under sidebar there are only links and meta link, the archive link is disabled on the left but somehow it is still showing.

    try deleting this:

    <li><h2>Archives</h2>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>
    </ul>
    </li>

    (make a back up first in case it messes something up)
