Sorry if this question is totally stupid, or if I should be posting it somewhere else. I'm brand new to working with wordpress. I've currently got an established blog that is hosted with Blogger. I'd eventually like to transfer my Blogger blog over to wordpress, but am currently working on a "sister blog" to get the hang of things, before I switch over my main blog.
I've got no idea how to change the color of the side bars, header and footer, while leaving the main body white. I've tried to have a play around in my wordpress settings, and so far I haven't gotten very far. It seems like every change I try to make doesn't actually show up when I refresh my blog. I have managed to remove the top Blog title, but would like to remove the whole top header, so it's just the image that shows up. I'd also like to remove the opaque bars on the side of the image. Can anyone help me? How do I change the colours?
Thanks very much,
