I'm very new to WordPress but not to web design. I've been dissecting various themes and trying to modify them. I'm working locally with WAMP on a PC.
I've downloaded K2, sandbox, tried modifying classic and default and nothing will change when I modify the CSS. I've tried modifying within wordpress and with dreamweaver, code not wysiwig.
From what I understand, I need to make a copy of the theme and put different identification information at the top of the stylesheet which I've done.
Searcning for help on the web I found someone suggesting copying the page source (straign html, no php) and modify the stylesheet from that. You can get immediate feedback that way. I tried this, working in dreamweaver, and the changes I made in the stylesheet did appear in display view. However, they did not display after saving the CSS and viewing the regular php page. I did clear the cache.
I'm not sure what code might help to figure out what I'm doing wrong or if there's something simple I'm doing or not doing. It's local so I don't have it uploaded to a host. I would like to use the Sandbox theme which seems the most unformatted to start from.
Thanks for you help. A Newbie.
