    How can I change the content of the Meta Widget? I managed to change the title, but I want to remove some of the options. I'm using Techland theme.

    The standard WordPress widgets code is kept in wp-includes/widgets.php.

    If you want to remove everything from the Meta menu (in WordPress Version 2.5.1) except for the Site Admin and Login/Logout links in the Meta menu then go to the widgets.php file in the wp-includes directory and remove lines 532-535.

    If you want to change the name of the Meta menu to something else go to line 525 and change where it says 'Meta' on that line to whatever you like within the quotes.

    I hope this helps.

    You couldn't be a little more specific than that, could you? I'm on v2.6 and I only have 290 lines in the widget.php file. What code are we targeting here?

    A much simpler approach is to create html links to whatever you want in a text widget.
