    Default Delete unwanted text field

    I placed a text field on my home page, then realised it wasn't what I wanted. I want to delete it but cannot find the option to do this. So I thought the next easiest thing would be to delete the page and start again, but because it is the home page I don't have that option. Any ideas please?

    Use the Page Editor and add/delete whatever you want.

    Thanks, but I have been in Page Editor and I cannot see a delete option, that is the reason for my posting. If I right click on the offending text area I get a choice of Cut, Copy, Paste and Text Field Properties, but no option to delete it. There is no delete button on the toolbar. The only delete function I can see is the Delete Page, but that won't work because it is the home page. If as you say I can add/delete whatever I want, please explain how in this instance. I am happy to admit I am new to this and quite probably am not seeing the obvious, and would appreciate it being pointed out to me please.

    Highlight or click on unwanted item in page editor, hit delete on keyboard.

    Or, if you are HTML savvy, click the source code view, and then highlight and delete the offending code.

    Thanks, I had already tried highlighting and hitting delete but that didn't do anything at all. But I was able to resolve the problem thanks to your suggestion about viewing as source. I didn't know which piece of html was for this text box, I tried deleting what I thought it might be and that didn't work so I simply deleted everything. That's fine, I am back to a blank page and can start again.
    Thanks again for your help
