    As to what I recommend, stay away from Revolution mag themes. They are solidly coded, but not all that easy to customize. I recommend instead Darren Hoyt's Mimbo for easier customization. Plus I think Darren still has a free version of Mimbo floating around out there. Brian Gardner's Revolution themes cost around $80 or so. And worth every penny, because as I mentioned, they are solidly coded.

    Also think about another free mag theme called Branford Magazine.

    Hi

    Thanks everyone. I like the look of the Brandford one but when I go through the normal method of loading a theme wordpress does not then seem to see it, really strange

    I think the theme file is loaded with a file so if you upload it as is it is hidden.

    If I remember, you need to extract the Branford theme to your PC then upload it to the wp-content/themes folder as the files are in a sub-folder in the zip file.

    There are several free Revolution themes.

    Hi

    Thanks, I have been experimenting most of the night. The problem I was having was the theme was in a folder within a folder which I have not come across before so it was not loading as it should. Learnt a lot tonight about changing logos and where they hide.

    Can't get my head around the following though

    http://www.der-prinz.com/2008/04/01/branford-magazine-use-blogname-instead-of-a-logo/

    both seem the same to me. I could work out the css changes. In the end I found the Blandford heading, downloaded it to photoshop and then changed it
