    Hi,
    On wellagain.co.uk I have set up two pages, one an introduction and the second an information page. Despite having created a new menu, I can't find how to activate it so it's visible on the home page lhs menu area, or how to remove some of the existing left hand links.
    Can anyone help please?

    See Custom Menus. Are you sure that your current theme supports custom menus?

    Thanks for getting back emsi.
    No it does not 'natively' suport custom menus. Going to the widget area, the left sidebar is not shown as an option.

    Then it looks like you may have to change themes.

    It looks like the custom menu widget has done the trick. Thanks, I think you helped indirectly there. Now how do I remove the other links like Hello World, Mr WordPress on Hello world, January 2012, Uncategorized, Entries RSS, Comments RSS, etcWordPress.org?

    You can simple delete the Hello World post. You cannot delete the Uncategorized category (WordPress needs at least 1 default category) but you can rename it to something more suitable for your use. On sites that are more "site" than "blog", I usually suggest renaming it to something like "News" in case it's needed as a sort of press release option later on.

    Not sure where the other items are. Can you post a link to your site?

    Looks like the other items are part of your sidebar's default (non-widget) content. You'll need to edit your theme's sidebar template file and remove the code that references them.
