My Loopy Problem (2 posts)

    Hello. I'm sure you get this all too often, but I'm a newbie who worked himself into a corner. I have a design that I created in HTML that I want to use for a theme in WordPress. My understanding is that with the Loop, all you do is add the proper tag(s) to the section of the HTML you want and change the .html file to a .php file. Too easy? I messed that up some how. In the dashboard it says my theme is broken.

    Here's a link to the index.php:

    And here's what the design looks like and where I want things:

    If any one has the patience and the time to walk me through this, I'd appreciate it greatly.

    A whole bunch of us have already taken the time to walk everyone through it. There's also a series of articles on the codex about porting existing sites into WordPress themes if you look around a bit
