    I'm new to wordpress and i'm trying to make changes but can't seem to find the html code that I see when I "view source" in my browser. Also, I am trying to change the theme, but the only source of help I found is in the codex but seems to apply only to those who are upgrading from version 1.2. what i have managed to guess around to is found at http://www.choudak.com/wordpress/

    WordPress dynamically creates the HTML you see in "view source". If you want to change that output, you modify the theme that you're using.

    Here's the codex entry on 1.5 themes. It's a good place to start.

    If you want to change that output, you modify the theme that you're using.

    For example, if you're using the default Kubrick theme, you'd copy the /wp-content/themes/default/ folder to a new name -- say, /wp-content/themes/mytheme/. Then modify the theme files using a text editor.

    another small detail. If you are trying to rename a theme. You need to change the first couple lines in the .css file for that theme. You cant just change the folder name of where the theme is located.

    An example would be if you wanted to keep the a copy of the default template installed but use a copy of it to play around with things.
    You would upload a second copy of the default template. Then change the folder name and the template name in the .css file you are changing.
