How do I get rid of the little Forums & Calendar panels on the Home Page?

Many users complain that the Schedule and Messages/Forums panels do not look very good on the Home Page. There is no way to remove them but there is a fairly acceptable work-around.

What you can do is:

  1. Copy the “home page” HTML text into a new HTML file (index.html) in resources.
  2. In Resources alongside the newly created page select, Make Web Content Link.
  3. Go into Site Info > Page Order Tool and
  4. Move the newly created Web Content link to the top of the list.
  5. Either hide or remove the Home Tool (click the light bulb icon so it goes grey or click the big red X).

Then you’ll have a home page with no side panels.
