So I downloaded a template to help me make a site. I am a total newbie. But I'm having some issues picking up where the code is for certain objects/subjects. (and what I have to do)

First, this is the template I am using:
http://www.freelayouts.com/templates/Ocean?preview=true

1. I am having trouble finding where the coding is for the main banner. (and what I have to do to make it appear) I have done the obvious, I have uploaded all the images that came with the template.

2. I figured out how to add the main buttons on top (home, about us) etc but mine aren't centered..they are all in the corner. Plus the bar is missing. I can see the individual but not the bar.

Any help is appreciated.

Can you post the link to your site so that I can view the source to see where everything's going? Or post the code for your link bar.

Also, I think the banner you are talking about is http://www.freelayouts.com/preview/5988/images/head_bckg.jpg, which is not a banner, that's what they use in the template, but you are supposed to put your logo there.

yeah, i do want to put my background but i needed to first see where the coding was for it..and i honestly couldn't see it.

here is the code from the template:

Guys, how would you add the sidebar for example and all those bars in?
what would be the code? I was able to add the background.

(PS I'll make a bigger banner but was testing to see if I can get something on there)

(here is the template..you see the top cool whitish type bar that is on about us, etc)
