    I can't figure out how to make my additional pages have the same layout/theme as my main page. See http://www.lorenthelovely.com (main page) versus http://www.lorenthelovely.com/aboutsite.

    I'm kind of new to all this stuff so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    page.php is the template file that holds the design for pages, so you'll have to modify that one.

    I'm not quite sure how to modify it to have the same layout as the home page. Like I said, I'm new to this.

    FTP to your server and navigate to your theme folder. Inside that folder, make a colpy of index.php. Rename that copy of index.php to page.php.

    Now, when you write a new page, on the right side there's a box titled "Page Template." Choose "Default Template" from that list and you should be set to go. "Default Template" looks for page.php and uses that. Since your page.php is an exact copy of index.php, the layout of both pages will be identical.
