I've been using WordPress for some time, and I love it. I'm getting a bit tired of using pre-done templates, I want something unique for my site. I've started making a theme based of the default. However I've run into a couple problems, and I'm hoping someone on here has the know-how to help me. I have all the images changed and what-not, but I haven't been able to figure out where to go to fix the posts and sidebar to the new width. Secondly, I need to know how to add a few things, and where to add them. I know only HTML, no php, so I'm lost. And yes, I've looked for online tutorials on it. I want to add an image above the header, with no margin above. I also want to add a custom menu below the header, where it just has an image as a background with text (lining of course) above.
Any help on any of this would be greatly appreciated, you can see it so far at http://test.winnopeg.com.
EDIT: I'd also like to move where the title goes and remove the description from the header. Thanks.
EDIT 2: I'd also like to split the search bar in two, with the go button centered underneath, however I can't get that to go either.
