I am new to wordpress and having a slight issue with managing a site template.
I am by no means new to web development as have made many on other CMS systems before now.
Anyway I have taken over running a site which has a theme that appears to have derived from the theme "twentyten".
The front page has a slider which scrolls several images and text. All other pages (excluding News) has a sidebar with some links/images in.
Now I am unable to find out where I am able to edit any of these as I need to change the images and text.
I have looked in Appearance >> widgets and none of the widget areas appear to have any content in.
I have changed which page is the home page for the site and this now has the slideshow at the top and what was the home page has the side bar.
I have had a look in the editor at "Sidebar" and "Home page page template" but no reference to the images or the text in either the Header or sidebar.
Any suggestions into how I can edit these parts of this site.
Many thanks in advance ( and appologies to the WP developers who see this as a very basic question)
