Looking For Help With Template (2 posts)

    I am new to WordPress and i've followed the getting started and read the beginner stuff. I am in sort of a bind and would like to get my blog rolling ASAP. I underestimated the learning curve with WordPress. I am not very HTML savvy (didn't think i had to be until now).

    I've found a template i would like to use, however, I would really like to move some things around a bit and add some stuff. QUESTION: Is there anyone out there who can either manipulate the template for me OR if possible walk me through manipulating my template for me?

    Can anyone tell me my options?

    In WP templates are called themes. Most themes have a basic structure that you would modify.
    header.php
    sidebar.php
    footer.php
    style.css
    There are other files but generally these are the ones you modify. It's a matter of removing, moving code. Adding code, etc.
    Here is a good read:
