Hi guys and girls with brains. Recently got a host and installed WP, friend suggested Thesis but then another said they had promoted to Thematic which was better, so I installed that. I work through the WP dashboard as not ventured into the hosty bit as I have no idea what I'm doing but after trying to find an answer here to something I did venture in there and look - lots of scary files!
I have been learning things on Dreamweaver CS5 so not totally stupid at it all but cannot get my head round the parent child thing, although the more I read it is forming in the depths of the old brain.
My questions are,
1. is this a theme where I will still be writing code like in DW?? as right now I don't seem to even have a way to change a bg color or anything but play with moving widgets around. The Thematic Options seems to have nothing, or nothing I understand.
2. How can I get rid totally and absolutely of the comments thing? I have read the threads here and still no wiser.
This is my first ever hosting and first ever site, so be gentle and note that I need child steps and abc and 123 for complete dummies.
Thank you for your time.
