[SOLVED] WordPress: Remove "Hello World" from Static Home Page Bottom (Personal Portfolio Theme)

I hope to save users of the Personal Portfolio Theme for WordPress the hours of distress I suffered trying to remove the "Hello World" widget that appears on the bottom of your static home page.


  1. Log into your WP Dashboard
  2. Select "Appearance" then "Customize"
  3. Your theme settings will open
  4. Click on "Personal Portfolio Theme Options"
  5. Scroll down and click on "Call to Action"
  6. Click on the box in front of  "Enable this section" to remove the default blue check mark in the check box
  7. Click the blue "Save & Publish" button
  8. Go to your website front end, refresh your browser, and Voila! The section should be gone.
