    Thats my site, I am using a flexibility2 theme if that means anything to you guys..

    Basically all I want to do is get rid of the content in the header where the "POP QUIZ" content is with all those ads (they aren't mine they came with the theme)

    and get rid of the footer content that says "Dont miss these two resources to build your affiliate income" and the ads that follow that (those also came with the theme)

    I tried to edit the header and footer in my wordpress admin but I can't seem to find anything that looks like those ads for me to remove..

    Nevermind I kept looking around and found the part in wordpress to change, thnaks anyway though ;)

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)

    To change that stuff you have to use FTP access, then edit the code for the footer and header, that is where it would be located.

    The footer is usually included with the theme, NOT the admin-footer.php and admin-header.php

    Go to the themes folder (wp-content >> themes), then look inside for header and footer php code, there you should be able to edit what you need.

    Go to widgets - featured top- replace with whatever content you want.
    Repeat with the footer widget.

    Just upload the files you edited again in the theme folder and start again.

    And watch out when you're deleting curly brackets...they always come in pairs....
