    Hi I installed a WordPress blog on my server and I am trying to develop my site and implementing an HTML layout my friend made for me. So I try editing the default theme's header code using the WP Dashboard's theme editor. All I can say is the code is so complicated to edit, and it won't allow me to change colors with HTML tags, it only allows me to change colors on the CSS. I am very frustrated trying to implement a simple HTML layout.

    BTW the image screenshot of the layout I want to use is this...

    So I need a straightforward tutorial on the basics of editing the default theme layout of WordPress. Or if you're willing to help me some other way. I just need to get this project going.

    All presentational information is supposed to remain in the CSS file - not the HTML.

    This tutorial might be helpful to you.

    But I reccomend getting a good basic understanding of html and css before.

    That tutorial is over 2 years old!

    Far better to start with Theme_Development.
