I am sure that this title might seem a little basic, but let me explain the problem I have. I want to modify the way a post (on the first page) is displayed. Now, I know a little HTML and CSS, so I opened a lot of files in a basic text editor.
Everything is very clear, the way WordPress has been setup is very good. Files as header.php, footer.php and style.css are pretty basic.
Now, when I want to modify the way the date (for example) appears, I just search in the sourcecode of the page in the browserwindow and I find terms like
<div class="post" id="post-3">
I was wondering, if I just let my text editor search for all the .PHP files in het WordPress directory, to find a file that matches the criteria above, I can modify the way the date is being displayed.
I find a lot of files where those div's are being echo'd by PHP, but if I put an extra word in the source (for example) and refresh the page, no changes are made.
Files I've been trough: attachment.php, page.php and a few other files. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance, greetings from Kenya.
