    New here.

    My blog is set up so I can inform friends and family on my health, which is not good.

    Is it important to show tags in the sidebar as in the Default WP theme, expecially in a personal “journal” like my blog? Attracting outsiders will never be a high priority. I use tags in posts, so search engines will cover those interested in the subject, won’t they?

    Regarding pages… A friend who is a webpro with a lot of WP experience told me to limit Pages. However, I do have information I want to share about medical aspects of my condition and treatments that ought to be static.

    Can the word “Pages” be changed? I see a lot of sidebars with an “Articles” section.

    Can the order they are listed in the sidebar be changed? I have plug-in for that but it only changes the top horizontal menu which I don’t want anyway.

    Thanks for an help you can offer. It’s been a lot of fun for my wife and I so far and it’s probably saving me an hour or two a day that’s been spent answering emails and phone calls with “How are doing?” question.

    1. It is not necessary to display the tgas in the sidebar.
    2. Yes, you can change the “pages” to anything you want. This is the template tag that displays the list: Template_Tags/wp_list_pages
    (see the examples there)
    3. see #2

    Note. If you are using the widgets in your sidebar(s) – they overwrite everything that is hand coded in the sidebar.php file, in which case #2 will not have any effect.
