I am very new to Word Press, and wondered whether I may seek advice? I am building a site for a local charity/Amateur Musical group - presntly sited as http://www.formresult.co.uk.
I purchased a template (or Theme as I believe they are called here). In the Theme I'd like to remove the information relating to making posts as you would in a blog. I'd also like to remove the search box, and perhaps make the right hand column a little more attractive by adding some sort slideshow. Can anyone advise please?
I am a bit confused with the "meta", blogroll, and the like. Are they strictly for certain types of data? When I look in the WordPress CMS I can't see any widgets in the Theme, but looking at the xhtml it says that there are widgets ... indicated by class=widget_style I presume.
