I'm really new to drupal, however through searching the web and learning bits and pieces, I've managed to build a really nice site with a database of nodes displayed in views etc with loads of what i conceder "cool stuff", and I'm donkey proud of it. However I can't get my head around adding simple text to the main body of pages. Every time I add "basic page" content type, which is supposed to be for static content, or so it says, it is displayed as a selectable content type with an odd "read more" link.
So to be specific, I would like to add text to a page without a browser being able to select the title and seeing the node type (going to a different view", and would like to remove the "read more" link - cos its pointless when all the text is being displayed.
Further to this, how would I say add a paragraph of text to a page, followed by say an image, then maybe a views table?
Sorry to post such simple questions, but I found the answers to much more complicated stuff on the web, this simple stuff eludes me.
Thanks in advance :-)
