    I am still new to using wordpress and I just created a site using one of the wordpress theme. My page is slimerweight.com and I want to do the following:
    1. I want to add adsense to the sponsor section on the right side bar
    2. Remove the categories, blogroll, and meta from left sidebar
    3. Remove "edit this entry." from showing up in the main body text area.
    4. How do I add my main start page and a couple of other pages as tab across the top of all pages
    5. Lastly how do I add a privacy policy link to the footer area

    1. User:Tomhanna/Adding_Ads_to_Wordpress
    2. Consider Widgets - Administration > Appearance > Widgets
    3. The edit link is caused by the use of Template_Tags/edit_post_link in the WordPress Default theme's wp-content/themes/default/index.php file
    4. Might be better to find a theme that supports horizontal menus such as http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/amazing-grace
    5. Edit the theme's footer.php

    I was able to remove my right sidebar, but now I have this huge white space. I looked in the style css, but there is no width to change in the content area. So how do I adjust my width to go across the rest of my page to the right?

    1. You can either assign the same color of your "comment space" to compensate for the withe spot.
    Or...
    2. You can try to find the CSS tag that corresponds to that sidebar and replace the "width" dimensions to 0px (then you will have to locate the "comment space" compensate its width to whatever the sidebar was.

    there are many options...

    I got my color right on the page, but I think my right sidebar information is still on my page. Even though I have nothing in it. This is what is listed in the style page under sidebar:

    #sidebars ul{
    padding:0px;
    margin:0px;
    list-style:none;
    padding:10px;

    }

    #sidebars ul li ul{
    margin:0px;
    padding:0px;
    border-bottom:0px solid #ebc0d5;

    }

    #sidebars ul li ul ul{
    border:none;

    }

    #sidebars ul li h2 {
    color:#fff;
    padding:0px;
    margin:0px;
    padding:5px 10px 0px 22px;
    font-size:1.4em;
    background-image: url(images/h2bg.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    height:37px;

    }
    #sidebars ul li ul li{

    border-bottom:0px solid #f5f5f5;
    padding:5px;
    color:#000;padding-left:20px;

    }

    #sidebars ul li ul li li{

    border-bottom:0px solid #f5f5f5;
    padding:5px;

    }
    #sidebars ul li ul li li a{
    color:#222;

    }

    #sidebars ul li ul ul{
    margin:0px;
    padding:0px;
    border-top:0px solid #eee;
    }

    #sidebars ul li ul li a,
    #sidebars ul li ul li a:visited
    {
    color:#730000;
    text-align:left;
    font-size:1.10em;

    }
    #sidebars ul li ul li a:hover{

    }

    #sidebars ul li ul {
    margin-bottom:10px;

    }
