Thanks for the help!
I don't even know where to start! I'll number them out, thanks in advance for any help!
Some constants firsts:
*I'm not good at creating css, but I can cut/paste and tweak a bit
*I'm specifically trying not to use the .css box. I'm interested in being able to save my layouts with text and colors and everything so I can just switch to it if needed.
1. I've looked and couldn't find the color scheme for Oddities_Purple which is the layout I want to use, but I know it's got to be somewhere. Any ideas on where I can find it?
2. How do I get rid of the "User Info, Recent Entries, etc..." text? I've seen how to put it in the .css box, but how do I actually work it in my theme?
3. How do add a header? I've read the tuts, but everytime I compile I get errors. I'm probably missing something really simple.
4. How do I use a header with an image map? I've used one before, but it was so long ago and it was on flexible squares.
5. How do I change the post header image thingy? The one at the beginning at each title. Again, I saw that you could do it in the .css box, but I want it in the theme.
Thanks so much for the help!
