Hi Gert,

Thanks for the information, the way you suggest is the way I prefer to
do it.  The one thing I cannot understand is how to change the
template of the site.

I have gone to:

admin/miscellaneous/content edit/template edit and there seems to be
no way of editing the layout of the site.

I then went to:

admin/templates and re-configured "noleft" and renamed it "noleft2"
Changing the background, and other edits, but when I went to do a
"change template" to the new "noleft2" the changes did not take, it is
like there is a different place this needs to be changed.  I have been
struggling with this for months now and have given up each attempt to
change templates. I can change it from the standard noleft to top/left
areas etc. but cannot seem to get one of my edited templates to

I would rather change the template than the CSS for the layout.
