Making Template changes (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I use 1and1 as I've seen mentioned in a few posts. And I agree, their customer service has been non-existent. I have my blog up and it works fine, but I would like to make some cosmetic changes to font sizes, icons, side bar stuff, the usual.

    I see that the style sheets are in a wp-content subfolder of my main domain, supposedly, but I can't see this folder in my FTP software. Is it a hidden folder typically?

    I've read the install instructions on this site as well, but I'm thinking that if I do all that, I'd overwrite what's out there already. I'm thinking that I just need to figure out why I wouldn't be able to get to the WordPress files in the folder. (I could be thinking wrong, though.)

    Thank you for any help!!!

    Karen

    Every theme has its own stylesheet in the wp-content/themes/theme-name-here/ folder.
    Make a backup copy before you start messing around with it.

    Thanks for the reply, moshu, but that's my problem. I can't see the wp-content folder for some reason. Do you know why I might not see it?

    Looking in the wrong place? Do you see other WP files and folders?
    It is there:

    Yes, I see it when I view the source. I cannot see it when I FTP into my domain.

    I'll ask again (and last time): do you see any other WP files and folders? If not - your are definitely looking in the wrong place!

    I'm sorry. I thought I was pretty clear in what I was describing. I cannot see the wp-content (or any other wp folders) among my FTP folders.

    Maybe you could suggest what the "right place" would be? Maybe that's the solution I need! thanks

    How did you install it? OK, this my sound like a rhetoric question...

    Do you have a folder like public_html or htdocs or www?
    Usually, all your content should be in a folder like that.
