I am trying to change my webpage layout to one I found on the internet, but I have had no luck of it working on angelfire. The codes come up as codes and not the layout. Can I get some help?
The layout I would like to use is below.

The theme you are trying to use is made for WordPress. You would need a wordpress site in order to use it.

Ahh, that makes sense, then. Didn't even know if it was possible to install a theme in angelfire. x-x

Wordpress is what serians.net runs on, basically, so if you jumped over to waterlily's you could use it. Webs has extra themes you can pay for, if memory serves, though angelfire is beyond me. Tried to fiddle with it for something once - it crashed my browser (chrome) for the first time (that wasn't related to opening 1000 tabs all at once) and so it quickly got the boot.

You may be limited to angelfire's built in themes, for all that was seen in my personal experience. Wish we could help more.

Wordpress indeed has a free hosting...One also offers subdomains on serians.net with wordpress. You can talk with Vineda and Songhue to see if you would like one for yourself and your Serians.

I really like the serians.net subdomain waterlily's got set up for me. Here's Shamrock's page, for example: http://vineda.serians.net/shamrock with all of the navigation links to the right. There are a ton of possible themes/layouts.backgrounds available and they're way easy to preview, so you can see if you like how it'll look with your stuff.

The sites Songhue listed earlier have some themes you can preview and download. Then you can upload them to a site like waterlily's and ba-da-bing! you're in business! :D If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to help if I can, and waterlily's a whiz. When I started building mine I had no idea where to start but he sent me all the necessary links and startup advice. ^_^
