    Hi Dean,
    I found a way of editing the Sidebar's content, this way you could remove/add whatever you want.

    The page you have to modify is this one: http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/index.php/MediaWiki:Sidebar

    Try changing the content of the page to the following, and see what it does, if you don't like it you can restore the previous version.

    Heres the code:
    Code:
    * navigation
    ** mainpage|mainpage
    <!--** portal-url|portal-->
    ** currentevents-url|currentevents
    ** recentchanges-url|recentchanges
    ** randompage-url|randompage
    ** helppage|help
    <!--** sitesupport-url|sitesupport-->
    *Featured
    **Palm Encyclopedia | Palmpedia:ONLINE REFERENCE
    **General Information | Palmpedia:GENERAL INFORMATION
    **Garden Pictorials | Palmpedia:GARDEN_PICTORIALS
    **Survivablility Index |*Palmpedia:PALMPEDIA SURVIVABLILITY INDEX
    **Resources | Palmpedia:RESOURCES
    
    Regards,
    Luis Diego.

    Luis,

    I like the concept. However, I think the code might be incorrect. I tried it, and I think the order is reversed --- for example: **Palm Encyclopedia | Palmpedia:ONLINE REFERENCE

    I think maybe **Palmpedia:ONLINE REFERENCE|Palm Encyclopedia would work.
    I tried the code you supplied but the link didn't work. I will check it out more tomorrow. I don't have anymore time this evening.

    I really like the idea.

    I've checked it and yes that is the way to do it.

    Thanks again Luis. As you can see, I gave it a try and it works great.

    That's a very good thing to know how to do. I had been wondering how difficult it was to customize that sidebar. I appreciate you figuring that out and letting me know.

    Pura Vida
