Newbie to WordPress - easy question about templates (2 posts)

    Hello,
    I am new to WordPress but I am not new to web design. I click on Appearance then Editor. On the right right I see 16 templates (footer, header, content, side, footer 2, etc). How can I tell if these are all used in my site are just leftover from the previous programmer?

    At the bottom right, there is style.css and xstyle.css. Can two stylesheets be used? How can i tell if they are being used by my site?
    Thanks!
    Linda

    Can two stylesheets be used? How can i tell if they are being used by my site?

    you have to look for the links to the stylesheets in header.php, or for code that enqueues the stylesheest somewhere, or for @import in style.css

    also, if you use Firebug or the web developer add-on of Firefox, you can get information about the used stylesheets.

    with the other temapltes and files, you can only guess;

    maybe this can help:
