[resolved] Simple changes to match other site pages (3 posts)

    I'm new to WordPress and relatively new to web design. I've hunted around on these forums looking for an answer, but my question seems too simple.

    Throughout my site (www.sreich.com) I have a very basic html/table setup for my header, which includes the links to navigate around the site. I'd like to put this header at the top of my blog instead of the big, block header and maybe change some of the colors. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

    I know that it's possible to create a new theme that matches the rest of my site, but all the instructions I have found seem to be for people who want to totally redesign the theme. I'm happy with the general layout of the defualt (Kubrick) theme and just want to make a couple of small changes. Even if i have to create a new theme based on the default theme, I'd like to keep it as simple as possible. Which of the files in the theme folder will I have to edit and which one can I leave alone?

    Thanks for any help.

    Never!
    It can be done, of course, but not without learning some basics of HTML, CSS.
    And if you are a novice to html and css - do NOT attempt to modify Kubrick; it's an animal that even seasoned users get confused by.

    All the template files in a theme interact with each other: a div might start in the header.php and goes through index and sidebar to finally end in the footer.php...

    Ok, thanks for the information. I'll leave Kubrick alone and will just spend some time learning. I found a template (Nightsky 1.0) that is pretty close to what I want, so maybe I can just make some small adjustments to it.
