    Hello, I would like to change the defautl WP layout so that it's the same as the one in my domain http://ymvdesigns.com, but I'm afraid of touching the coding for fear of ruining everything. I know I can edit the CSS file, but in the actual index.php file, what can I edit and what do I have to leave so the blog runs correctly?

    Try the Wiki - wiki.wordpress.org
    this might help - http://wiki.wordpress.org/CSS%20Tips%20and%20Tricks
    also - try looking at this http://wiki.wordpress.org/TemplateTags it should help you with what all the PHP is doing and what you can alter safely.

    Hmm... Wiki didn't help, that's why I posted here. I don't need to change the CSS so much, I just want to integrate it into my already existing site layout, without the calendar and all the links on the side, all I want is the main data post and the comments. I've been beating my head over this too much already, thanks anyways :)

    You need TheLoop. It's got a page in the wiki - that just grabs post info, and none of the other stuff.

    Ok, I've made some progress, that Loop wiki did help. This is what I have so far: http://ymvdesigns.com/news/index.php What I want is for that blog to replace the main text on my main index page. How do I intigrate my already existing layout (it uses PHP as well) into the blog page? Better yet, can I take all the code that's currently on that page, and just paste it into the already existing main index page? Does this make any sense?
