Thanks for being willing to help. I really do appreciate it. I looked and looked for a template that was close to what I needed, and this was the only one out of probably a thousand that I looked at that would come close. Of course I am having to try and make some major changes on it.
What I needed was a basic three column template around (with a left column, middle, and then right) 800 to 900 resolution wide with a totally empty left hand column, compatible with wordpress 2.2, able to use widgets if I need them in the future, etc. This was the only one that came close to that. I looked and looked and this one was the only one.
There is a SEVERE lack of BASIC three column templates like this one that have no graphics to start with and have a left column, middle, and then right column.
Also, I want to admit that I know very little CSS or html. Two weeks ago I knew none at all. However, I have invested about 20 hours of time making the alterations in this template I have accomplished so far. So I really don't want to switch.
If you are talking about the text in the middle column then it looks white to me, but I guess you could call it very, very light grey. Could you tell me how to change it?
If I have to load up another template I will probably loose all of my little remaining hair. Can anyone tell me how to make this one so that the middle column shrinks if someone views it with another resolution?
I wish that I could have found the kind of template I wanted from the start but it did not exist. I looked for days and days.
It seems the more basic the template (especially three column, with an empty column, all the other stuff on the right hand column and so fourth) are rare as gold.
I would consider using one if someone has one they can suggest, but otherwise I really need to alter this one.
Thanks so much for your help. I apologize if I seem a little cranky but I have been up far too long, been getting little sleep for the past week, my eyes are on fire from staring into the screen for 10 hours a time with hardly no breaks, etc.
I just need to get this stuff done. :-(
