    Default Deleting "Information Sidebar" Items

    I'm sure someone else has asked about this, but I browsed through about 10 pages without finding it, so I'm asking myself.

    How do I remove some of the links in the Information sidebar listing? I don't need half of them.

    Thanks!!

    One last quick question...where do I modify the Newsletter Unsubscribe text? That wasn't included in the Tools / Define Pages Editor section. Thanks!!

    I found it, thanks.

    What continually frustrates me is that some things can be found through the admin section (which is a godsend for people like me who neither know nor understand php) yet other things which logically SHOULD be right next to them aren't, and can only be accessed by risking major screw-ups. And then they're much more difficult to change (i.e. changing the font size in that unsubscribe.php--I have NO idea how to do it there, whereas it was a snap in the Define Pages Editor).

    Why aren't all the pages you might need to modify (such as, from what I can see, most of what's in that includes/languages/english folder) included in the script so that they can be modified more easily and with less risk of messing it up??

    This wasn't a rhetorical question, btw...I really would like to know the logic behind it. Maybe then it will be easier for me to find stuff.

    I think it's a case of define pages being considerably more complex to set up than ordinary PHP files, with a special folder tree, and ordinary files need to be in their own proper folder trees according to the ZC structure. There are security issues with admin being able to edit files, and I think limiting the locations of editable files is part of the security measures in place...

    Well, it still doesn't make any sense to me. But thanks for the answer, I appreciate it!

    Basically, it would be a lot of extra setup, complication and maintenance work for the devs to make more existing files editable the same way define pages are.
