Ok I am a basic freelance web designer but without db or php knowledge. I just spent the last hour installing wordpress and now have it going. There is loads of interesting and useful info here on this site but it's really technical and 'insider' based. But maybe I'm missing some intriduction links etc.
I want my blog to appear differently than the default... but how ?
I see talk of templates and styles and stuff but what are they ? What is the difference between a Template and a Style and a Layout ?
If I go to the Designs/Layouts/Themes list..... what does this mean ? if I see a layout I like can I duplicate it ? how ? I don't see any file called template in my file lists...?
