    Is there a way to use a CSS template theme like those found on this website? http://www.solucija.com/home/css-templates/

    I like the look of a lot of these, and was curious if would be possible to use the css file for blogging.

    Not without some work. Those designs have to be converted into a WP theme to be usable with WordPress.
    Several of them have been made as a WP theme, just try to search for the name of the templates.

    How complex do you think it would be? Going into .php files and renaming div tags? I'm sure there more than meets the eye.

    Actually it would be a little bit more than that. Those sNEws templates are a single file and a stylesheet. An average WP theme is built up of several files - just take a closer look at the files in your default or classic theme that come with the downloaded package.

    If you want to jump into trying it - I'd strongly suggest to read the articles from the Codex: Blog_Design_and_Layout and download and dissect several themes to understand how they work.

    Yeah, I've already done my fair share of dissection simple to moderately complex things - enough to release my own theme. It's the 2 column under the main body aspect of it that is confusing to teach myself.

    Like all things I do with design, trial and error. Thanks for the link!
