    I am interested in altering my blog in the upcoming future and I am not sure if I should do the custom upgrade or switch to wordpress.org ( I have read the support pages, but I am still unsure). The only problem is that I have basic knowledge in html and css, I am afraid that I will totally mess up the site.

    For my current blog I use the bueno theme. From what I understand I can alter the custom header, but I am wondering if I could put a logo on top of the image? I read a recent forum post, but I am still confused.

    Also, am I allowed to adjust the content width? Will I be able to change the menu navigation? Does anyone know how the containers are set up? Can I make separate boxes for each post and for the different elements on the side bar (ie: top posts)? Also, would I be able to make these into a background image that has texture? Any feedback and links would be greatly appreciated. Inspiration would also be helpful. Thanks for your support.

    The blog I need help with is firesurvivors.com.

    If you’re afraid of totally messing up the site, you do not want WP.org. The Custom Design upgrade here includes staff support to make the changes you require. Given enough assistance, all of the changes you require are doable (depending on HOW you want to change menu navigation; that’s not a CSS function at all).

    For inspiration, check out the “Awesome blogs using Bueno” section at the bottom of this page:

    You might also find some pretty cool stuff in the Q&A in threads tagged with “Bueno” in this forum:

    Thanks for all your help. I think I am going to try just the custom upgrade.

    I think my menu will be the biggest challenge, but I have seen it modified for another bueno user. I just really want to be able to include my fire survivors logo, which I will design. This might mean that I will have make it part of the custom header image.
