Thanks for replying Chris.

I've set up foreground and am now using that, and it seems to be working
well so far. But I do have three little niggles -

- How can I get rid of 'From DrugFacts' under every level one heading
  please? Does anyone know please?
- There is a strange menu entry on the navbar 'Site statistics', but I
  didn't put it there and its not populated with anything. What is it
  supposed to do? How can I use it effectively please?

- How can I link to a section heading on a page from the sidebar please?
