I'd like to create a blog with features similar to http://www.solutionwatch.com/ which is also using the WordPress platform. Specifically I wonder how to:
1) Add my own customized logo / background to the header section
2) How to add "search" box
3) How to add nicely formated sections like "Links" /"Recent Posts" similar to http://www.solutionwatch.com/ to the side bar. Note: each link is nicely separated by a grey line
4) How to add some graphics to the side bar area
5) How to organize the placement order for various items on the side bar
6) How to add "post to delicious" next to comment section
7) How to remove the meta section in the side bar area
8) Is there a way to search this help forum?
Thanks very much for your assistance in advance!
