Changing the Post Form Appaerence (4 posts)

    I am very new to WordPress.

    How can I change the appaerence of the forms used in the post.php file when displayed for a post.

    For example, moving the categies selection option up the page to be next to the posting form.

    Or simply removing an item I do not want on the posting page.

    Simple as this may sound, I could use some expert help.

    For moving: did try "dragging" the blue categories box?
    For removing - you'll have to edit the file(s).

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    I have looked for the file to update, but have not found it. Please allow me to explain what it is I want to do.

    On the page an Author uses to write his/her post I want to remove the "Upload Images" feature, along with a couple of other items. Where is this file?

    Sounds simple, right? We'll it's got me confused.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Since we are talking about the admin panel -- it's logical to look for the files in the wp-admin folder, isn't it?
    So, the post.php is there. And it is calling for the edit-form-advanced.php file... which will call for other scripts and files...
    And remember: modifying core files is a very unhealthy thing! You will have to remember/write down all your changes and re-do them at every upgrade.
    If you are new (as you stated above) and don't know what are you doing - better stay away from modifying core files.
