Html is basically coding that commands things to look and work a certain way, it is basically like a different language, every colour command has a number code and every pixel can be commanded to look like something to do something when clicked. html is the rules to how things will always look on a screen.
when looking for a template for my wordpress you can just search people s templates that they have already created using html and you can simply apply them to your wordpress which them automatically codes your wordpress blog to look the same, then went editing you blog you can simpley play around with the html changing the colour codes, size of font and how the blg looks just by reading the code and altering bits and peices.
For my blog i found a template that i really liked and began to play around with it altering it to look how i wanted it. Here are some screen shots of the look of my blog now.
^^^ this is how my blog front page looks, it’s very simple and plain but i like this because it’s easy to find your way around and has a very stylish yet modern look to it and the way its layed out.i did change the title it was quite small when i first found the template, but by using html i was able to make the title bigger and change the shade f grey that it was.
^^^ when clicking on one of my blog posts, the post opens by dropping down and opening so all the other blog posts in the list slide down, i really like the movement and easy and by clicking the title of the blog pst again it will pull the post up and close it again going back to the start page.
^^^^ the side menu bar also works the same as the posts when clicking on one f the side bar titles it then drops open so that you can view the headliners under each title before the clicking on them to go to the pages.
^^^^ in one of the drop down sidebars, i made a new title called links and added everyone else that has a blog, so people can easily get from one blog to view others they may interest them and it also makes it easy for me when using my blog space to quickly get to one of the other sites or blogs.
one of the good things about my blog space is the customise function, when clicking on the side bar titled customise the list opens containing different colour title, one click of any of the colours will transform my blog space.
i really like this feature because if people have trouble with viewing my blogs or they just fancy a different colour while browsing they can change it to something else, however my site will always return to white when reuploaded,
i also have an app that when you click on flickr photo stream it shows you 3 of my most recent uploads on my flickr account and when the images are clicked on you are then directed to my flickr gallery.
