    Hi!
    I installed WP and wanted to remove some of the widgets like categorizes, RSS and links. I went to the Widgits panel and clicked and dragged the the widgets from the Available to the Inactive panel. On the homepage I did a Ctrl-F5 refresh but all the widgets I dragged to the inactive panel are still there! How do I remove them?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    Try adding a widget to your sidebar. I think you're currently seeing the default (widget-less) sidebar content.

    could be. but why would I want to add anything. I trying to get rid of them! I'm looking to create a minimum private blog that would only be for a small group of people. I don't need RSS feeds, categories, links and the other stuff that might be of concern to wannabe op-ed people. It seems to me that the software, while user-friendly is not hacker-friendly. By that I mean those of us who like to get in there and mess with the innards. The css files are created without cr/lf in an attempt, it seems to thwart editing., yet it is still the most popular blog software on the net.

    does anyone know how I can make these changes? Is there a link to some tutorials that encourage such tinkering?
    Thanks,
    Paul
