    Hi, I'm just new with wordpress and I'm not very familiar with it. How do I change the template? Am I gonna have to delete the old css code of the site and replace, or do I just insert the css code of the new template I want to use. Can anyone help me please? Thanks =). Any suggestions would be great.

    I'd suggest firstly downloading a free template. There are hundreds of thousands out there, just look on the wordpress site itself, or search google for some.

    Next read this: Using Themes: WordPress Codex.

    It is the wordpress guide to using themes!

    Oh, If you are looking at using your website's current design as a template theme, you'll need to split it into PHP includes, and then in the index page add in your wordpress codex tags.

    This can take a very long time, so have a go at it once you've got a good few days off work/school/etc.

    You'll find everything you need in the wordpress codex.
