hehe with all due respect, I already said I was going to have a look at other themes to figure out what they have done..
And I have made some progress (not to mention that I am very new to this stuff [css and etc]) click here to see
after reading some blogs I could create a second sidebar, put a text widget in there... Changed the background pic to note.png (the yellow thingy) I know it is not perfect I still need to take the search thing out and create a new note.png picture to fit in that area properly...
well to create the second sidebar I did not need to do much coding (just a simple change functions.php and create sidebar2.php using the original sidebar.php codes and also the codes in css related to that one
HERE's abit of what I changed in css
float : left;
width : 230px;
background : #ffffff url(images/note.png) no-repeat top right;
overflow : hidden;
As you can see the text widget is white in the photo.. had a read about "about me" plugin apparently it is possible to add a picture or background in there( a yellow background same color as the note.png will do I guess)
considering that I don't know much about css and php, I've done some star, need to learn more about css tags so that I can implement it properly (wider content area for page and proper positioning for the sidebar)
esmi I would really really appreciate if you do not post anything else in here to discourage me
