    Alright, so I've got hosting and a domain name, have installed WordPress and uploaded a theme, now how do I edit it? My site is http://soccerspecs.net and the theme looks good to me, but there is an about section on the sidebar where you can apparently fill in what you want- how do I edit it?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Your should edit the theme files on your computer in a plain text editor (like Notepad) and upload them after editing. ALWAYS make a backup copy of every file before modifying them - just in case!

    For the About section look into the sidebar.php file (most likely).
