hi,

i can't seem to see where/how i can change the default content/widgets... i see how to delete the sidebars from some/all pages, but what if i want to put different copy/content in the sidebar, where/how do i do it? thanks for any suggestions!

also, where/how do i find this, i.e. "Manage > Pages > Page Order" so i can change the order of the page menu items? i.e.

Sort the pages chronologically, as you created them (Change the page order at Manage -> Pages -> Click on page title -> Page Order)

Having different content in the sidebar for different pages is usually done through the use of a plugin such as Display Widgets or Widget Logic.

Page order can be done by putting an order number in each post (tedious), by using a plugin such as My Page Order (Easier), or using the new WordPress menu system (best in my opinion)

hi - thanks!

re the wdigets, i just want to change/delete some of the default content in the existing widgets and/or delete one of the widgets and then have the same widget/sidebar on every (static/no blog post) page so where/how can i "edit" the widget content and delete default widgets from the sidebar, but keep other widgets? it seems all or none and only "as is" but i'm sure i can edit someplace...

re the menu page order, where is the "wordpress menu system"? it seems that it defaults to listing the (static/non blog post) pages in the menu in the order that they were published, but supposedly there is someplace in the admin where there is a "change page order" option, but i can't find it... thanks for any suggestions!

The default sidebar widget show up if you have none of your own widgets in the sidebar so if you want just a recent posts widget you put just that one in the sidebar and none of the rest will be there. In other words if you have specific widgets you want to show you have to put those in to override the defaults.

The WordPress menu system is only available if you have WordPress 3.x and Atahualpa 3.5.3. You get to it by clicking on Appearance>Menus. Otherwise install the My Page Order plugin and you can drag and drop the pages to the order you want. The change page order built into WordPress is done when you are creating a page. There is a page order box where you put a number. This is very cumbersome and I wouldn't recommend it.

ahhh thanks! think i'll try to create a new widget with what i want and then override the defaults that way...

re the page menus, i think since i only have around 10 (static) pages for now it may be easier to just rebuild if need be to reset the menu bar, but maybe i'll add the plugin you mentioned or upgrade soon.... thanks again!
