Removing parts of a theme (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I just set up a wordpress blog as a "extra" to my website.

    However, you'll see on the top of the header (which is in the background) wordpress has put in some links: "about" "Search" "Skip to content" - anyone know how to get rid of these?

    Also apparently with this theme you can put buttons across the top (where it says "''home" and "Uncategorized") I can't seem to find out how to add more buttons to that little ribbon.

    Thanks!

    Your theme's header.php is probably using the template tag, wp_list_pages(), to display those so just delete the code in header.php.

    Also apparently with this theme you can put buttons across the top (where it says "''home" and "Uncategorized") I can't seem to find out how to add more buttons to that little ribbon.

    The "Home" is probably a hard-coded link, but "Uncategorized" is a category, so just create more categories. Again, the header.php of your theme is probably using the template tag, wp_list_categories(), to display those.

    Well actually I couldn't get the header to change so I just modified the background image.

    I found the code in the header file you mentioned - thanks for the help! I'll try the menu thing on the top now. I'm finding it's easier to edit the php files rather than searching through the tools installed by wordpress - am I just weird?
