"Explore" header & featured categories header

    Good afternoon,

    I sent an earlier post that I was in the process of utilizing your theme but have gone ahead as it’s one of the cleanest for what I’m looking to use it for.

    However, is there any way to remove the top menu header of just the “Explore” function, and the “Featured Categories” menu?

    If they are not possible to remove entirely, exactly how would I go about editing the Featured Categories menu because as of right now, I cannot seem to even find how to change the color/size of that menu.

    Know very little CSS but can work with it once I know the code if there is any for this.

    Thanks again, and the site is up on your theme at this url: http://www.bestseatsports.com.

    Thank you!


    The blog I need help with is bestseatsports.com.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for writing. You can disable the Featured Categories function by changing the menu items on your Primary menu. The Featured Category drop down will only show with category menu items in your menu. Go into your Menus screen (Customize > Menus), select the Primary menu, and change the links to whatever pages you’d like.

    You can hide the Explore icon with the following CSS:

    .drawer-toggle { display: none !important; }


    Thanks for the reply.

    I edited the site and published it so you can see the changes, but still have the following question.

    Assuming there is no way to get rid of that very top bar then entirely?

    Secondly, there is no way of editing that Featured Categories menu? I’d just like to make some edits, such as the height of it.

    Thanks again for the response, I greatly appreciate it.

    You can get rid of the top bar entirely with the following CSS:

    .top-navigation { display: none; }

    You can change the height of the menu area by going to Appearance > Customize > Theme Options > Header Height.

    Hope that helps!


    Thanks, I saw that and was wondering if there was any CSS for it.

    I already have it set to the minimum header height thru those options and it still appears quite large. Is this the portion of the theme that is un-editable you were saying?

    Thanks again!

    Hey Michael,

    Sorry we didn’t see your reply here. There is some CSS you can try, but you’ll start getting into a situation where you’ll need more and more CSS to account for the various post title heights, etc.

    You can try adding this to save some space in the header:

    .hero-posts .post { padding-bottom: 200px; }
