    I'm new to WP and I was wondering how I could edit th templates on it. Every time I click "Theme Editor" I can't change anything, all it says is "if this file were writable you could edit it."

    does anyone know how I could incorporate my OWN layout, while using WP. I could do it in Movable Type, but I can't seem to figure it out on WP..

    thanx for your time.

    To make your stuff editable. You're hosted with apache so this'll be simple.

    SSH or telnet into your account, navigate to your theme directory and do
    chmod 666 *
    at the command line. That makes them "world writeable" in Unix lingo, meaning you can now edit them from within WP.
