I've found some very nice Wordpress themes that match what I have in mind but I'm having trouble customizing them.
For example, I don't need my home page to have a blog-style front page to it. I don't need it to show the date.
My other pages have a place that viewers can leave replies. I don't need this either. On the right bar there's a button for RSS feeds which I can't seem to get rid of.
Should I just look for another theme, or can I remove these things? I can't seem to do it through the dashboard.
