    I am surprised this is so difficult.

    I am using WP 2.8.4 and the "Amazing Beach" by Christian Wallpaper. Along the right hand colum there is an "About Me" section that has the following "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Vestibulum at arcu. Integer et risus. Morbi id tellus. Integer felis."

    I can find no way to edit, or delete, this section.

    Hi Walter, you should be able to go to your dashboard, and on the left hand side you will have "Pages", click on that and then on "edit", and a list of all existing pages should come up. There should be your "About" page. If you hover over the "About" you will see "Edit" come up underneath. Click on that, and you will be able to change it!

    Go to the theme folder and find sidebar.php

    Delete the following section:

    <li><h2><?php _e('About Me'); ?></h2>
    
    		<ul>
    
    			<li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Vestibulum at arcu. Integer et risus. Morbi id tellus. Integer felis. </li>
    
    		</ul>
    
    	</li>

    Hi Lokrin2000, I tried to remove the same text by deleting the section you mentioned in my sidebar-2.php and the text is still there. I checked the sidebar-1.php file and the text is not there so I don't need to remove it. I've been trying for hours to figure out how to remove it. Originally, I changed the text to something else, but the text from the template is still there.
