Hi, Google+ is appearing under the footer at the very bottom of the site, as it was pasted in html somewhere, could you tell me how to hide it? thnks
This is your page link http://ivorycontent.com/ , and since google+ is inserted immediately after <!-- #page --> comment probably it is inserted inside theme folder / footer.php file. Check this file and remove this link if it is there.
Also, you can always reinstall theme, and all template files will be reverted to default.
I presume if I were to reinstall the theme any other customised settings would revert to default also, which I wouldnt want to do
Yes, everything will be reverted to default. Then check your template files. Also google+ link can also be added with some plugin so you can check plugins with such functionality if any.
