Hi all, I am setting up a blog for a friend and have used mostly default settings. I chose the main page layout for the blog as I wanted to set a custom background and my friend likes the layout. I am trying to remove most of the social media icons shown below the collection tagline on the main page. I tried searching the forum to see if anyone had posted a similar topic but no luck. Can anyone advise which file I need to edit to only leave the Facebook icon below the Header Tagline? Thanks very much.

@funkyflo I think you didn't remove the right widget. If you are trying to get rid of the icons pointed in the screenshot below, then you need to find the "User links" widget, which is in the "Front Page Main Area" container.

Tip: by enabling the debug mode, you will see a new entry "Dev" in the evobar, just click on the option "Show containers", and it will be easier to identify elements in your front-office (screenshot 2).
