I REALLY feel like an idiot because I am completely lost, maybe one of you can put me out of my misery?!
I had someone build my website for me with wordpress. I now have a login at http://www.mywesbite.com/wp-login.php. I can go in and edit the website but only very basic bits, like the content of the pages themselves, not the header, footer or actual design, which are actually those that I want to update!
Now this is where I am lost.Should I have a wordpress software running on my computer too to edit the design features? I've read through bits on the wordpress site but cannot seem to find info on 'how to install when your website is already set up'. Following the install guide seems wrong as the website is already running??!!
I also get the message 'WordPress 2.7.1 is available! Please notify the site administrator.' I'm sure I'll work that out later.
The guy who built the website I cannot get a hold of and will be able to for a while. I have no other contacts who could help me.
It's that basic point that I don't get. Once that's answered I'll be fine I am sure.
What now? Please?
