I made a sidebar with this introduction http://archive.ssbits.com/create-a-static-sidebar/?commentStart=20, and I got the bar I can edit with cms. I've tried to search the files, but I can't find where can I edit the NAME of the sidebar, because now I have bar with the name "static sidebar" above.. In which file does it stand, where can I change it?
There's also introduction how to put e.g. External Link to the sidebar, what I don't need. So I'm removing those lines from the codes, but I'm seem to miss some of them, because it's still saying "External link" in my sidebar.

If you followed the tutorial, you must have created a StaticSidebar.ss. Most of the things you see in your sidebar stem from there. Look for:
and don't forget to ?flush=1

Your first question: the name of this sidebar is in the template (themes/blackcandy/templates/Includes/StaticSidebar.ss ), wrapped in h3 tags.
Your second question: check the template again
Edit: ahhh, too slow...

I already changed that <h3>Static Sidebar</h3> -part (which I assumed to be the right place, but was confuced when it didn't change anything), but can you explain what does that ?flush=1 means ?
And yes, I'll check the template again... and if don't find, I'll do it again.. Maybe I'll find the missing part (or the part that's left)

Got it (the first problem), thanks! (And still looking for the "external" part)

The ?flush=1 means to flush the site's cache.
Taken from the docs: "Whenever we edit a template file, we need to append ?flush=1 onto the end of the URL, e.g. http://localhost/home/?flush=1. SilverStripe stores template files in a cache for quicker load times. Whenever there are changes to the template, we must flush the cache in order for the changes to take effect"
