How to remove widget boxes from WordPress pages

Click on Appearance

Click on Widgets

On the displayed page, you should see a table titled Available Widgets on the left and a table titled Sidebar on the right.

To delete a widget, either:

  • Drag (click and hold) each widget that you don’t want displayed out of the Sidebar table over the Available Widgets table (let go of the mouse button).
  • Or click on a widget in the Sidebar and then click on the delete link under it.
