I'm sorry I posted on the main forum as well, but looking at the other posts here it seemed a long shot to get a reply. I did ask this question there earlier but was rather brusquely told to come here. Odd really as a question I asked yesterday was promptly and courteously answered. I'm very new to WP (2 days), feel like I'm working in a fog and am only asking for help because I really need it.
I'm sorry I can't post a link as I have nothing up yet - I'm working on WAMP on my PC.
I've opted for the layout with 2 sidebars. I downloaded a widget for a vertical menu - I guess that would qualify as custom? (I'm assuming that non-custom is something that comes with the theme?) It's installed, configured via its little drop-down page and I've put it in the Extrabar for Pages, but it doesn't show on the page. I know there's a place to configure 'ordinary' menues - do I need to use that as well to get this one working?
My most annoying issue though is not being able to find how to delete the permanent Home link and the Meta stuff from the page. I've unchecked all the meta options on the appropriate edit tab, but it's the Meta heading on the right of the page I can't find the coding for. If I can't get those off, then the need for the menu becomes redundant as I won't be able to use the theme at all.
I'm sorry to ask so many questions, but like lots of great programs and utilities, the very simple stuff tends not to get explained very well in the dox etc.
I do appreciate any help you can give.
