Hello Support at GP !
Ok, I’ve decided to go ahead with the new site.
Using Slideout as the theme. Please see
I’ve first uploaded content.
It’s now about fixing problems and experimenting with styles.
1. How do I disable, then later perhaps enable, “Follow Me” and “Recent Posts”?
2. See the menu. The items are displayed twice. In the hard-wired menu.
Then below. How do I delete the ones below? I could not figure that out
under Menus on the backend.
No questions here, yet. I’ll have to acquaint myself with the option.

1. Go to Appearance > Widgets and remove the 2 widgets from the Off Canvas Panel. You can always add them back in.
2. Go to Appearance > Menus. Create a new Menu, and DO NOT add any items to it, and set its Location to the Primary Navigation.May 5, 2022 at 4:20 am #2210009John
As always, David, extremely fast, and 100% solution.
Thank you !
P.S. Not a problem if you roll your eyes at me,
but I’m gonna take another look at taking
understand-culture.com, copying it, modifying
it a bit to serve as johnottomagee.com
You admised me on this a week or so ago. But
had problems duplicating the site. I’m gonna give
it another stab.May 5, 2022 at 4:37 am #2210023DavidStaffCustomer SupportMay 5, 2022 at 4:40 am #2210027John
So far so good.
I have duplicated the site with the help of Duplicator.
Now deleting on johnottomagee-files on server.
If that goes well, I then drag n drop in the duplicate.
And if that works, need only to tweak a few things on johnottomagee.com,
i.e. logo, etc.May 5, 2022 at 5:54 am #2210088John
Ran into problems.
Decided to not fuss for hours.
Instead back to the original idea: Slideout.
Let’s see how quickly I get download it, created pages/posts, etc.May 5, 2022 at 6:57 am #2210154DavidStaffCustomer SupportMay 5, 2022 at 7:06 am #2210168John
Sure enough the first snag:
Appearance … GeneratePress … Site Library does not open (spinning dial).May 5, 2022 at 7:17 am #2210180DavidStaffCustomer SupportMay 5, 2022 at 7:22 am #2210188John
No Permalinks in Tools.
See screenshot.May 5, 2022 at 7:24 am #2210192John
Same problem when trying to update license key.May 5, 2022 at 7:25 am #2210195John
BTW … the site is using the theme Spacious,
which I had downloaded a few weeks back.
Strange. Because I thought I had wiped the
site totally clean, including re-downloading

Sorry my bad – in Settings > Permalinks.
Is there anything on the site you want to keep ? If there isn’t then you may want to wipe the site clean and start over.
Your host could do that, or you can use the WP Reset plugin to clean up. And you can uninstall the plugin afterwards 🙂
It may be worth doing as it sounds like the database still has old content in it ( if you’re seeing an old site ).May 5, 2022 at 7:43 am #2210222John
Not your bad at all, David.
I should have found that.
Been using WP for several years.
Dopey of me !
Not much to wipe clean.
Just got rid of theme Spacious.
Other than that no pages or posts of mine left over.
Ok, I’m back at the beginning.
Upload pages. Then work on style.
You’re always a HUGE help, David.
Expect to hear from me as I proceed.May 5, 2022 at 8:02 am #2210452
