    Hi

    As far as your header... The least fuss way to do it is this. (I assume you want to remove the search box)

    in your style.css file in your theme folder:

    1) find this on line 39

    #header #search_menu {
    height:90px;
    }

    change it to this:

    #header #search_menu {
    display:none;
    height:90px;
    }

    That removes the search box from the display

    2) Add the header image you want as a background image. put it in the images folder within your theme folder.
    find this on line 28 in your css

    #header {
    border-bottom:1px solid #999999;
    height:108px;
    padding:1.5em 0 0;
    }

    add one line, as below

    #header {
    background: url(images/[header_file_name here].jpg) no-repeat top right;
    border-bottom:1px solid #999999;
    height:108px;
    padding:1.5em 0 0;
    }

    if your file is a gif file or a png file then use gif or png instead of jpg

    you may have to fiddle with it to get the image adjusted exactly as you need it. If your image is taller than the height of the header space you can adjust that height in your CSS by changing this on line 28

    #header {
    border-bottom:1px solid #999999;
    height:108px;
    padding:1.5em 0 0;
    }

    adjust 108px to whatever you need it to be.

    As far as Google Gears, the purpose of that is to speed up how long it takes for the admin files to load, nothing else. If you feel its interrupting your page display, you can remove it from your site by going to the Firefox Tools menu (I assume you are using Firefox...) and selecting the Google Gears option and turning it off for your domain. You can always install it again later.

    Hi! Thanks for the massive help! Ill definatly sort that out!

    Ive turned Google Gears off now but im still not getting any style/CSS on my admin/Dashboard section.

    Could it be possibly be to do with me upgrading my wordpress to 2.7.1?

    I havent edited in the WP-Admin folder myself so cant see why this would suddenly happen?

    Regards

    hi - actually, your theme stylesheet is importing a 2nd stylesheet that resides in folder lib beneath the theme folder. the stylesheet is called compressed.css

    Some of the CSS i pointed out to you earlier may be in compressed.css rather than style.css

    you will have to check and see.

    You are actually much better off using an FTP program and a text editor on your computer to change the stylesheet and template files instead of using the theme editor in the admin section. I just found there is a WP codex page on how to install Filezilla, a free FTP program, and set it up to work with WP. The URL for that is here
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_FileZilla

    I see there are also a few filezilla - WP tutorials on youtube that you can search for.

    The good news is what you are trying to change on your theme is pretty simple. You are just having these other issues that are making it complicated.

    The information on how to use your theme is at this URL
    http://themasterplan.in/tma
    It will most likely tell you how to get content into the featured post section.

    Its very unlikely that not seeing the CSS is related to Google Gears.

    Although this all may sound complicated, you will be learning some valuable skills on how to properly work with a WP website..

    Replacing the header text with your own logo is properly documented here:
