I wanted to remove the "Meta" widget from the right sidebar. But on the WordPress Appearance/Widgets page there are NO widgets assigned to the right or left sidebars. And none of the Atahualpa option pages allow you to add or remove widgets.
Here's the explanation. If no widgets are explicitly assigned to a sidebar, WordPress gives you the defaults:
- Categories and Archives in the left sidebar
- Recent Posts, Blogroll, and Meta in the right sidebar
Here's hoping this saves someone time/energy/temptation to hack.
