    Working on a wordpress theme, have a few CSS questions...

    Hello,

    I am a Web Designer / New Programmer, and this is my first experience with WordPress.

    So, we built this website and the customer requested a Blog. So we installed WordPress and hired a designer to customize the design of the blog to match the site.

    Well after he finished, we had to redesign the actual website a bit, and instead of re-hiring him to update the blog, I've decided to tackle the blog design myself since the changes are relatively minor.

    So, here is a link to the Blog:
    <a href="http://gem-tech.com.mytempweb.com/blog/">http://gem-tech.com.mytempweb.com/blog/</a>

    Here is a link to the site we are trying to replicate the design for:
    <a href="http://gem-tech.com.mytempweb.com/store/pc/home.asp">http://gem-tech.com.mytempweb.com/store/pc/home.asp</a>

    As you can see I am very close, but I am stumped on how to change the actual content (Search Field Text, Horizontal Menu, My Gear Logo)

    See I can make CSS changes relatively easily, but for some reason I can not find which .php file contains where I can modify the menu, images, etc.

    Can anybody here please point me in the right direction? All I want to do is update the top of the blog with the new menu, new 'my gear' button & update the search text

    I open the index.php file, and it is just a call to other files, very confusing for me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Make use of "find in files/folders" option of editors like notepad++/Dream-Weaver and search for the string "Search GEMTECH - keyword or part #" or parts of it under the selected theme folder (which will be under /wp-content/themes/)

    The file you are looking for is header.php . It will contain the menu, logo and the top part of the template.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I opened up the Header.php (wp-content/themes/suffusion)

    And this is all that's in there:

    <?php
    /**
    * Core header file, invoked by the get_header() function
    *
    * @package Suffusion
    * @subpackage Templates
    */
    ?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>

    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />

    <?php
    suffusion_document_header();
    if ( is_singular() ) {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );
    }
    wp_head();
    ?>
    </head>
    <body>
    <?php suffusion_before_page(); ?>
    <div id="page" class="fix">
    <?php
    suffusion_before_begin_wrapper();
    ?>
    <div id="wrapper" class="fix">
    <?php
    suffusion_after_begin_wrapper();
    ?>
    <div id="container" class="fix">
    <?php
    suffusion_after_begin_container();
    ?>

    I believe the search would be in a different file. There must be a file named searchform.php or something like that.
