    alchymyth,

    I'm a newbie, and if i understand the instructions in your link, will I be removing the Parents (the site I want to keep) or will I be removing the Showcase page template that the upgrade created?

    I want to keep the site that I created....

    Thx

    a:
    the showcase template is a page template which you don't need to use;

    b:
    an upgrade is unlikey to activate a page template;

    c:
    if you work with a child theme, as is recommended, then the code - as far as I understand it - should just remove the 'showcase' template from the list of page templates under 'page attributes'; it will not remove the parent theme or any parent page.

    about page templates: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates

    if you unsure about any edits, make a backup copy of your site before you edit anything - http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups

    Well atchymyth, I have spent the better part of 3 hours trying to find the "page attributes' with no success. I am totally exhausted and I am not going to try any more. I have read so many suggestions and i have tried so many searches, with no avail.

    I cannot even find on the dashboard, where the page parents drop down tab is.... I feel really dumb... it can't be this hard?

    Anyway, I thank you for your help, sorry I couldn't fix my problem, but at this point I am going to hire someone to fix this for me and then just not create anything with WP any more.

    Cheers.... :(

    Hi Alchymyth,,, I took yesterday to clear out the cobwebs... I understand what you want me to look for, however I cannot find it...

    unfortunately I am not seeing what you are referring too. If you don't mind, would you let me email a "snagit" picture of the WP Page that I am have in front of me, just so that you can see that the "edit" option is not there?

    thanks,
