    . . . wouldn’t have started a topic about that since it doesn’t matter much but could I just change the “Hello world!” title of the sample post to “Hola”? without a plugin

    Yes, you can change the text from the admin area. Won’t let you remove things tho.

    I already have customized the text but there seems to be no option to change the title of that sample post in my super admin 3.0.1

    Check out the plugin I mentioned above.

    THAT PLUGIN DOES NOT DO WHAT I WISH!

    When people create a site. I do not want any defaults created whatsoever. I do not want the About page created nor do I want the Hello World post created.

    How do I stop wordpress creating them?

    at this time don’t want to risk installing a plugin just to change a petty little thing and am too lazy to search php files for where that wording is defined so I guess “Hello world!” it shall stay to be after all it’s a legendary title for a first sample post at least 🙂

    turncoat – You have to create SOMETHING to give the site content.

    A sample page/post lets people know ‘Ah, this is what I need to do.’

    Even most ISPs do that, putting up a placeholder HTML. It lets everyone know what’s going on. 🙂

    If you don’t create any content, then as soon as a user creates a site, they’ll get a big “Sorry, you’re looking for something that’s not here” error message. 🙂

    Also – the plugin *does* have the option to put the hello world post on draft.

    Ok. Well I need to remove the about page…

    And I want to rename the hello world page.

    How do I do that?

    Either use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmu-new-blog-defaults/

    OR go into Super Admin -> Options and change what shows up in Hello World.

    I would keep an About page, but have it be a draft via the plugin, personally. Or an example page. ‘This is how you make a page!’

    How can I change the default title of a new blog’s default page? In previous versions of WordPress it was “About.” In the current version (3.1), it is “Sample Page.” I have been using the New Blog Defaults plugin for some time, but it doesn’t address this issue.
