    Hello,

    I am new here. Nice to meet you all. I have a little problem. I'm trying to create a theme of my own, which has characteristics like this one http://www.articlewritingguru.com/

    I am using Artisteer to create my theme but I noticed I cant extend the page like the one Im showing you is. I tried maxing out "width" in Artisteer but it doesn't reach the edges of the page. How would you do it?

    Thanks in advance

    Without a link to your site/theme it’s a bit difficult to understand and help you.

    By the way, you could always just purchase the theme you linked to and modify that. It’s from WooThemes.

    Hey,

    Okay, here's my site: http://www.fanfrenzee.com/

    I got this theme which is similar off someone and I just would like to improve the following things:

    Getting rid of those annoying brackets .... ( Fan Frenzee ). I don't even
    know how they got there.

    Increasing the font size of the menu. I mean it's barely readable.

    How to put a picture in the middle like the other site has?

    These are the main things for now. Sorry for being a newb.

    Getting rid of those annoying brackets .... ( Fan Frenzee ). I don't even know how they got there.

    Remove the brackets from your code as shown below. Probably in your header.php

    <h1>( <a href="http://www.fanfrenzee.com/">Fan Frenzee </a> )</h1>

    Increasing the font size of the menu. I mean it's barely readable.

    Increase, or assign a font size for your nav menu items in the CSS

    How to put a picture in the middle like the other site has?

    Add relevant code between the divs shown below in your template file and style accordingly

    <div id="leadwarp">
    <div id="lead">
    	</div>
    </div>

    Thank you! But, Lord, have mercy!! How did you learn code? And was it difficult? Does it take time? I'm not really sure I understand these things. I'm just a mortal.

    you need to study html and css, and a bit of php.

    You can get a book "html for dummies", "css for dummies" or any other books that can help you to understand the code. You could also go check out http://www.w3schools.com/. It's sort of like an online school.....

    it depends on how well you understand the code....

    but it'll probably will take a while. You need to study html first, then css, then javascript or php.

    Sounds like latin class.... lol. How long did it take you to master codes?
    Does it get easier later? What is the most difficult for you and why?

    I am hardly an expert, but I've been picking up HTML, CSS (and a wee bit o Java and PHP) on the job for about a year now, and I can say that it does get easier. Am I an expert? Not in the least. But I can usually take a look at a page and see what is going on.

    Learning takes patience, and time, so both of those might be tough on your tight schedule. There are a TON of resources out there, and Google and Oreilly are your best friend.

    For CSS, I've found this book to be quite helpful: [CSS: The Missing Manual]

    Best O' Luck!
