I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.
Please could you tell me how I edit the ‘Suggested Categories’ ie, to remove the Ad Banner and add something else?
I am not sure which ‘Suggested Categories’ section you are referring here and where it is displaying so could you please share the screenshot of it?
Also, I’d like to edit the social media options (eg, Red bar for Google+ and number) that appear in Stay Connected side bar, but I can’t work out how to remove the options that I don’t have set up yet.
You can remove it from “Shufflehound Social Counter” widget as displayed in the attached screenshot.
