How to Remove the Sidebar Menu in the Wordpress Verbosa Theme

I love the Verbosa theme. It's very flexible and looks great no matter what device the visitor is using.

One thing I don't like, however, is the inability to remove the menu from the aide bar. Sure, you can create a custom menu, amke it empty, and assign it, but that still leaves the MENU header there.

I tried using CSS to set it to display:none, but no go. Dunno why.....

Ultimately, I ended up commenting out the function that calls the menu.

The function is called in the file:

content-- themes--verbosa--includes--core.php

Look around line 150+ for this section:

And comment it out.

No more menu.

Remember that whenever you update the theme, you'll have to go back in and comment it out again.
