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,

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.
