On my blog, www.hardrocksphere.com , there is a link for "forum". This link was hard coded in and was not made using the normal Wordpress content management system. I'm trying to find the code to remove this link. Thanks.

Do you have some sort of forum plugin? As singleton said, this theme doesn't have it by default, so I suspect something else is adding it such as a plugin. It links to a working forum on your site. Who is your webhost - as perhaps your host has an integrated forum/wordpress setup.

In your site's wordpress administration, select 'Presentation' from the menu, then 'Theme Editor'. From the pages listed down the right hand side select 'Header', and search through the code there for:
<li><a href="forum/">Forum</a></li>

If it's there, you can remove/modify it to your heart's content. Otherwise we'll need more info.
