I will start with an apology as I am a total newbie to creating a blog/website and definitely to WordPress.
I have registered a blog with WordPress.com which is tracygracedesigns.wordpress.com and I have activated the Twenty Eleven theme which is pretty much what I want but there are a few things I want to change.
I have spent the best part of a week reading tons of information that seems to say this can be done if you access the template files and the css in particular and create a child theme. Apologies again if I am not using the correct terminology!
The first question I have is where are they and how do you access them? I don’t have a separate host service, WordPress.com seem to be doing this.
These are the things for starters that I would like to change.
1. The large white space at the top of the page:
I want to get rid of this completely so that the header image starts at the very top
2. The search box at the top of the page on the right:
I would like to move this to the far right in black bar underneath the header image which currently has Home and About in it
3. The header text (site title and tagline):
I would like to have this text (which is currently in the top left of the white space) over the top of the header image
4. The header text (site title and tagline):
I would like to be able to change the font to Blippo Light
Many thanks in advance to anyone who is kind enough to answer.
The blog I need help with is tracygracedesigns.wordpress.com.
