I am finding WordPress incredibly difficult to configure. Are there really that many people out there learning php in order to blog with it? All I want is a nice list of subscribe icons in my right sidebar. There is a widget called Subscription Icons to do that, but it requires something called Meta and when I enable that I get four text items that I don't want to see on my blog: Log in, Entries RSS, Comments RSS, WordPress.org.
Extensive search and reading indicates a lot of people want the same thing. But can we get it? Apparently not without writing or editing php. Many forums replies indicate that there is no definitive source for these 4 unwanted items. I followed some instructions to edit widgets.php and it made no difference.
If anyone knows how to create a list of subscribe icons in a sidebar without putting up a mandatory Log in, Entries RSS, Comments RSS, WordPress.org section, I think they will be very popular if they make this information available.
