why is there a little picture of a lock by some
of the Articles?
Those are the articles you seem to have opened for editing them. These locks are known as Check-out locks that prevents multiple persons editing the articles at the same time. If you open these articles and close them these locks would go away.
can I delete a bunch of files of Joomla that don't
look very important, like on that screenshot, the Breadcrumbs module
and others as well? I've deleted templates already
Strongly suggest not to remove any files from the Joomla! installation. In due course, this would create be detrimental to your site/development.
I've deleted templates already
Should not have deleted the templates. Sometimes these templates are helpful in isolating problems with other templates you use.
I don't get
the full editing tool where I enter text, like the tool bar where the
Links, Image, Bold, or any of that, just a textara type of box to enter
html. There's no WYSIWYG editor, but it's since I've deleted stuff that
it has disappeared, should I upload Joomla again?
It is hard to predict what would have happened as you seem to have deleted files. If you have not moved further, suggest installing Joomla! 2.5.2. Before doing this, make sure to delete the files (along with sub-directories) of the existing Joomla! 1.6 installation.Note: Please bear in mind that this is not a chat session. Suggest creating new topic for each of the issue you are having.
