Change Alex King CSS Style To Theme – How?

  • Hi everyone!

    I finally got around to putting up my own blog. I installed the latest WP version, but I want to change the current default theme.

    I searched thru google, found Alex King’s site, and saw a few which I believe will look good in my site. After downloading my choices and uploading them to my wp directory, I went inside my wp admin and saw I couldn’t activate them as themes.

    Looking back in AK’s site, it turns out the ones I got are actually CSS styles, like lindkvist-desk. I compared that and a couple of other themes I also found, and saw that LD style lacked other files like header, footer, etc.

    I searched thru this support site for similar issues, specifically how to change the Alex King competition style to a theme. Although I found some clues, I still can’t seem to get the desired effect.

    Because the lindkvist-desk only has the style.css and some gifs, I decided to copy the files from the default folder into a “test� folder, delete the default’s style.css and pics, and upload LK’s files into the test folder.

    I went to http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/upgrade/upgrade_en.html and http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrade_1.2_to_1.5 and tried to follow their instructions. But I can’t seem to find the specific codes it said that needed to be changed, and my “tinkering� has made it actually worse. (I’ll admit I’m not that very learned in coding, but I can analyze and get by…)

    My blog is davezan.com. If possible, I want my blog to look like this: http://www.alexking.org/software/wordpress/styles/sample.php?wpstyle=lindkvist-desk.

    This is also the first time I’m posting here, so I hope you’ll treat me with kid gloves! 🙂 Just kidding, just give it straight to me.

    Anyway, thanks! And keep posting so people like me can learn how to maximize wp!

    Great blog software, too. It’s awesome…
