I've spent two days on this now. I've read the same posts over and over, and I've tried all the following:
1. Activating, deactivating plug-ins.
2. Looking at my footer.php file--can't find the offending code.
3. Dragging and dropping side items about a half dozen times.
4. Doing a "super refresh" on my browser.
5. Sleeping on it and hoping it will go away.
I CANNOT make the Atahualpa 3 default side items of Blogroll, Meta, Yahoo hosting, etc. go away in Firefox 3.5. I FINALLY got them to go away in IE, but STILL they persist in Firefox.
Can someone just tell me, step-by-step how to kill them off once and for all???
If you can, I will happily donate to the site. Otherwise, after a week of tinkering with this theme, I'm about to throw in the towel.
