Well I'm all new to wordpress and I'm a little confused about exactly what I'm doing. I've got a theme I'm happy with but I also would like to change some of the colours (ie. background) to othe stuff, like a graphic I've made myself. I'd also like to put my widgets on either side of my posts, left and right, as opposed to just the right side, as it is currently.

Any ideas how to do this?

Are you wordpress.com or wordpress.org?

If wordpress.com you'd need to either select another theme that has the desired attributes AND/or do a custom style sheet (css) which is a paid for feature.

I'll leave wordpress.org answers to those who do their own hosting :)

If you're not sure exactly what you're doing, it's probably best to check for a theme with most of the aspects you want. It isn't as easy to customise as you'd think sadly. They tend to be categorised and tagged with the features each theme comes with, i.e. left and right sidebars, customiseable colours/headers, etc.

Ok thanks for the help. I'm wordpress.com currently but I'm thinking of switching to self-hosted at some point so the tips are appreciated. For the time being, I guess I'll hold onto the theme I've got.

Thanks for the tips!
