Thanks for your comments. AS I said my expertise is more in C, C++ and Visual basic but I have found that I can navigate around php code. My problem in using Atahualpa is that I can use the ATO but when a problem occurs and i would like to try and modify the php code I am finding difficulty in finding where the ATO inputs have been placed.
Here is a typical example, something you responded to above:
You referred to Atahualpa Options, Style and Edit Header Area which I have used. But you mention the following code.
%image <?php bfa_widget_area('name=top760_ad'); ?> %pages %cats %bar2
Where is this code? In what php file?
I find it difficult to find where Atahualpa has placed code although I have tried reasoning and if that doesn't work searching. However I have found that frequently neither technique works.
Although Atahualpa has been extremely rewarding - when problems occur I often find myself helpless. Whereas in languages like Visual Basic (object oriented systems) I felt more in control.
I suspect that the internals of Wordpress and Atahualpa and how they work together are not spelled out clearly.
