    hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this. I am fairly new to blogging, but extremly new to wordpress.

    I am really embarassed cause this might seem so easy for you, but i have two questions:

    1. how do i change the font I write with in posts and my pages? The default seems to be on Times New Roman all the time, and I can't seem to change the font.

    2. You know the side bar with the caterogries, links, etc. how can I add somethign there? Because I want something to be on every page, and add links and a web counter there.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    To change the font, you need to edit the stylesheet. To manage that stuff, you need to read the code "WordPress for Beginners". That should answer all your questions.

    Qn 1:
    You've a <font face="Times New Roman"> after your meta, delete that.

    That html overide your CSS style for font family already so I think the only way is to remove that <font face="Times New Roman">

    It wouldn't work if you edit your CSS, tried that ;)

    Qn 2:
    Not too sure but I think you can open up sidebar.php and edit it from there

    :)

    no problem :)

    The sidebar.php in your template file?

    You uploaded your files through FTP? There should be a sidebar.php in your template

    Anyway, you can go to Presentation > Theme Editor from your admin. There should be a list of files in your theme you can choose to edit, click on the sidebar and edit from there. Apply only when your file is writable.. if not you would have to manually open the file from your computer, edit it there and reupload :)

    Renee, your blog is hosted over at wordpress.com -- I don't think you can edit your sidebar file there. I would try switching to another theme, like Regulus 2, which will give you options on what to show/hide in the sidebar.

    (By the way, this forum is for people who use the installable version of WordPress.....) :)
