to the chagrin of all the people who helped me last time, i'm back with more questions...
first off, i've searched for over an hour trying to find the documentation on how to switch site designs. i know it exists, b/c i've read it before and it seemed real simple. can anyone give me the link?...on alex king's site (where i found one of the templates i wanted to swap) i found the "style switcher", but if i'm not mistaken, that's for visitors for my site to switch templates, not for me to switch the master.
second, i've tried my hardest to figure out coding, but even the very helpful tutorial here on wordpress about template editing confuses me...basically, after i figure out how to switch site designs, i'd like to add a custom banner i designed (to keep the consistency with the non-wordpress part of my site). ideally, it would be on the top of every wordpress page, regardless of category clicked, but i'll settle for just the first/main wordpress page that visitors see if it's not possible...can anyone spell it out (in knucklehead language) how i would do that?
thanks very much in advance.
