    Well, you need to create the "my-hacks.php" file in the same folder as your wordpress "index.php" and then, well, just check out the the wiki's info on my-hacks.php.
    That's the first few steps. If you need anything else feel free to ask. :)

    Thank you. I've been doing alot of tweak on css file to my preferance. There are couple of things I cant get it working right.
    1. How do I get height situation to be fixed? It seems to be too gap -- I want to get it back normal. I tried "line-height:" and it doesnt work.
    2. I want to move menu to left -- I did retype from right to left and it works but it cover up part of the text body. Do you have good css code that I can try?

    1. Alter the second number in this part of the CSS:
    p, li, .feedback {
    font: 90%/175% 'arial','Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Verdana, sans-serif;
    Making the 175 smaller will close the gap between the lines.
    2. Menu
    This will put the menu on the left in a basic install:
    The main parts to look for the changes in your code are #menu and #content
    Hope this helps :)

    Gotcha! All looking better now!
    How do I fix footer? As you can see my wordpress, its stuck on left? Which part do I need to adjust?

    Take the 'width' variable out of the .credit declaration in your CSS.. that should do it :)
    I don't want to pick, but maybe having 'Powered by WordPress :: Hosted by Crazytech' would be fairer to the guys who wrote WP ?
