    Thanks for the basics. I was wondering if I'd want to fiddle with the .psd file or index.html file. Now I know.

    I really didn't understand much because I am computer stupid, but I have paid like a ton of money on sites and I have never gotten what I wanted. Thanks for being there so I can learn how to get what I want from my site.

    Dave that is a great job. I have truble with templates myself often enough.

    May I ad one comment?

    Alway make a backup copy of the template files in another folder then you can feel free to play with it and if you screw up you can reload from the backup.

    That is how I have learned what little i know about php files . I make changes and try it if I screw it up totally I replace it with the backup and try again.

    You are absolutely right...
    That's always been the way I've done it. Not to mention being able to look back and forth to see the difference.
    I should remember most people today just want the answer, but then again sometimes it's better to screw up, to progress onward into a new thought process. Sorta like a higher plain of being. :D

    I am bummed, I am not new to website development, but I wanted to play around with some templates. I downloaded two and when I open the html file in my browser they do not look like they do on the website. What does this potentially mean?
