How would I remove the entire social_container altogether. I know that I could use CSS to change it to "display:none" but is there a way of actually removing it from the html? - sorry this is a general question that I've sort of repeated elsewhere but should I be editing the header.php file to comment it out?
I usually build wordpress themes for other people based on very simple themes so I've not used such an extensive wordpress theme before. I guess what I'm asking is how much of the original theme do people tend to edit? Should I be worried about theme updates? Also if a theme has been updated do I get any notfications or do I have to follow facebook / twitter.
Again, much appreciated! - Hopefully once I get the basics of what I should and shouldn't edit I won't need to bother you again! ;-)
