Once you can undestand and edit PHP it will be easier for you to know whats going on. I'm not a pro at PHP, but do realize you should have that basic understanding. I copy and paste when I can too. hehe</p> <p>I don't know the answer to your question, but hope these links help out.</p> <p>Thematic Resources<br /> <a href="http://esdev.net/build-wordpress-sites-fast-with-the-thematic-theme-framework/" rel="nofollow">http://esdev.net/build-wordpress-sites-fast-with-the-thematic-theme-framework/</a></p> <p>PHP Resources<br /> <a href="http://www.w3schools.com/php/" rel="nofollow">http://www.w3schools.com/php/</a><br /> <a href="http://www.tizag.com/phpT/" rel="nofollow">http://www.tizag.com/phpT/</a></p> <p>Purchasing a good book on Wordpress helps too.
