They are part of the skin template. You are using the Skittlish skin, and  
the template is the file pmwiki/pub/skins/skittlish/skin.tmpl. You can edit  
it to remove the links around the group name and the page title.

Same case, this is the group name and the page name, see the skin.tmpl file.

This is normal, the SideBar is a page in the Site group, and links in the  
SideBar like  [[Research Overview]] would lead to the page  [[Site/Research  
Overview]]. (And the Site group is edit-protected.)

So inside the SideBar you need to use links in the format  
[[GroupName/PageName]], eg. [[Main/Research Overview]] for a page  
ResearchOverview in the Main/ group.

You can browse/search the documentation for Links, WikiGroups and Skins, and  
if something in the documentation is not clear enough, tell us.


See the page on Skins:

You may also find useful a short tutorial on HTML: look at your favorite  
search engine.

And to be able to edit pages in the Site group:

Good luck,
