    I installed b2 through a visual interface provided by my server. I want to customize the appearance of my blog. Must I download wordpress to do this? If so, what is my first step?
    Thanks for the patienc.

    Although derived from b2, WordPress is a different blog app, and as such as nothing to do with customizing the appearance of your b2 blog.

    Once you decide to run b2 or upgrade to wordpress (b2's "official" successor) you can play around with the layout.css file.
    I suggest learning by
    1) copying your index.php file to (e.g) learncss.php
    2) copying wp-layout.css to (e.g.) learncss.css
    3) and change the line in (e.g.) learncss.php that says
    @import url( &lt?php echo $siteurl; ?>/wp-layout.css );
    to
    @import url( &lt?php echo $siteurl; ?>/learncss.css );
    Now you can experiment with css without breaking your site. Merely fool around with learncss.css and access your site (for testing purposes) by pointing your browser to learncss.php
    Note your archives links will still point to index.php?p1 so if you test and click through to index.php you wont be using your test learncss.css anymore.
