Please see the site here http://www.tlmlandscaping.com/. On the bottom of each page is a sign up for newsletter. How do I remove this? (I inherited this website from another designer and am only beginning working with SilverStripe. Thanks!

It'll be in a template file (*.ss) and probably in the theme folder. I'd download the site and search for "EmailTipsForm" to find it.

Good luck Sue!

I found the following code on 2 pages, Page.php and FormPage.php - Do I just delete the info and save the page? Do I need to do a flush to make it take effect (that may be the part I forgot)? and can you remind me of what I add to the domain name to flush?

Thanks
Sue

you could always just remove the entire "function EmailTipsForm() {...". then you won't need the dev/build

There should be something in a template like $EmailTipsForm that is putting it on the page. for basic questions there is an intro for that - http://www.silverstripe.org/general-questions/show/16055
