    I am so confused with how to make changes to the template theme. How exactly do I get to the code to change it??? Do I do that in WP or in the FTP Client server folder? Do I write/change the code while signed in to WP or do I copy paste it in the text editor and save it to the hard drive of my computer and transfer the files to certain folders on the server? I'm soooo confused. I feel like I can't get anything done?? Please help!!

    There are different ways, I always prefer to do it in this way:

    I use a text editor (not MS Word or other word processing monster), just a plain text editor and open the file for edit.
    ALWAYS make a backup copy before editing any file, so you have a working template file if anythng goes wrong.

    Then I edit the code and upload the modified file via FTP to its location.
    Check the result.
