    When your in the Dashboard, go to “Appearance” and then Widgets and this allowed me to remove some of the sidebar links. Drag them down to the bottom to ‘inactive widgets’ to remove.

    Appearance > Theme Options: check the option ” Yes, I’d like to hide the header search form”, click Save Options.

    @jisen: You’re welcome.

    If you had the Custom Design upgrade you would be able to change the positioning. Without the upgrade, you can’t do anything: you can only add the Search widget at the top of your sidebar.

    You add it the way you’ve added the rest of your sidebar items: you go to Appearance > Widgets and drag the “Search” widget to Sidebar.

    Dear Justpi,
    Thanks again. How do I archive a post? And what’s up with these ads popping up for instance on mobile devices?

    How do I archive a post?

    When you publish a post the software automatically Archives it – you do nothing.

    And what’s up with these ads popping up for instance on mobile devices?

    To off-set the costs of providing free hosting to millions of bloggers, WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006.

    10. Advertisements. Automattic reserves the right to display advertisements on your blog unless you have purchased an Ad-free Upgrade or a VIP Services account. http://en.wordpress.com/tos/

    If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then provided you see this small About These Ads link what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising.

    To eliminate all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs we can purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.

    Many thanks for the info. I bought the No adds upgrade!
    Being new to all of this, I’m wondering how to remove my initial post from the Home page, however, not deleting it. does it just move down the page as I add others or is there some function to archive myself vs. automatically?

    How do I add a url address so that others can click on it and instantly go to the website for example. Also, how do I add an email address in the same way. Easy access by just clicking on it.
    With gratitude,
