    does anyone know if it is possible to combine two themes into one, say the main content from one theme and the header from another? can you just replace the header php file?
    Just started using wordpress, any advice would be appreciated
    thanks

    yes you can combine elements from different themes into one theme. But its unlikely you can just replace header.php in one theme with header.php from a different theme without making a few code tweaks, since the coding style and naming is unlikely to be exactly the same between two themes.

    However you could try just replacing it to see what happens - it won't cause any harm. In the worst case you will have errors or a mess, and just reverse the switch and you are back where you were originally.
