    Hi,

    I've just started a Literary blog. I am based in Toronto but open to literary reviews and contributions from around the world. Any thoughts on design, content, etc would be welcome.

    Some things I'd like to do:
    1) Reorder elements on the right-hand sidebar
    2) Show recent post titles
    3) Center the header and customize the header background.
    4) Add feedlines

    I know I can do some of this via CSS and the editor but not entirely sure where to start. Suggestions for a newbie would be appreciated

    To reorder the right sidebar, you need to edit the sidebar.php file. In Admin, go to Presentation an dthe Editor. Then select the Sidebar template from the righthand list of templates/files. Just cut what you want to move and then paste it where you want it. Just be careful.

    For the recent post I have this code in my left sidebar:

    <?php if (function_exists('get_archives')) { ?>
    <li><h2>Recent entries</h2>
    <ul>
    <?php get_archives('postbypost','10','html'); ?>
    </ul>
    </li>
    <?php } ?>
