    Hi,
    I'm really new to Word Press and am just in the process of setting up my site and would like to know a few things.
    By Default the front page is called Blog and in my current them there is a Tab at the top that says Blog to go to it, is there a way to change this so it says 'News' and also by default there were some menus along the side I dont want such as Blogroll, how do I get rid of these? and is there a way to make a page without creating a Tab at the top and just a link on the sidebar instead?
    Im pretty sure all these things can be done because I've seen wordpress sites where it has been done.
    Thanks in advance.
    PS: Can i also get rid of the XFN and WP links?

    Everything can be changed with some basic html knowledge.
    I am not familiar with the theme you are using, but here is the general guide for newcomers (btw, welcome):
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Getting_Started_with_WordPress
    and see also:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Blog_Design_and_Layout
    about the structure of themes see Section 3: Themes and Templates.

    (another option: choose a theme that's like you want)

    It would be good if you spend some time inside your admin panel (if necessary there is also a lot of info about the feature on the Codex). In admin panel you could find your Links management section - for Blogroll and other links.
    For New you should look into the header.php.
