    I successfully installed wordpress and now I am looking for a guide or tutorial of how to start. I selected a theme, but how to modify it? Or how to create my own theme? 'til now I was doing homepages with Adobe GoLive - that is my level of knowledge. I hardly know anything about blogs. So where is information? Who can help? Maybe my questions are too basic here...

    Try this site: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes
    If you're using WP 1.5, you modify themes (edit them) by going to Presentation, and then Theme Editor.

    Another thing that can help--install WP a second time in a temp directory so you can play with the themes and see how they look without ruining your actual blog. I did this so I wouldn't have to bother installing php and such on my laptop. It's a simple thing, but sometimes just changing stuff here and there is the best way to learn.

    Then possibly try the Classic as an upgrade platform - it is easy to follow - and maybe fit the Gemini theme. Then you can just style it.
