I really need to get this figured out soon. I have a simple question and I am looking for a simple answer.
What I have done: fixed a theme's html and css documents to be exactly the way I want them and have inserted those documents, along with the rest belonging to the theme loosely (not in another folder) into my blog folder "blog.creative-synthesis.com" I have also placed the new version of WordPress into a separate directory folder on my server, thus having a successful update.
What is happening: the site is inheriting the original code from who knows where- I don't think it could possibly be on my server. From what I can see it is not finding the new files, or at least it is not replacing the old code with them.
Simple question: what is going on? Why is the old code still there? I know it has nothing to do with the cache or anything like that. The page is legitimately finding other code. But from where? And are my files in the correct spot? Should they be named anything special, or be in specific folders?
Please help me, I know that this is "simple" but I am brand new to WP, and I am not particularly fond of Codex... It doesn't answer my questions that I can see.
