How can I get a title on top of the central content area (where the blog is)? Each of the sidebar items has its title, but I don’t see a way to get a title on top of the content area. Help would be appreciated.
Since H3 is a html tag you just wrap the text you’d like to be H3 in the tags.
<h3>My Title Text</h3>
And if you wanted to style it you can give it a class like this.
<h3 class="custom_h3">My Title Text</h3>
Then in the CSS you could call it like this.
Or like this.
Really I didn’t read any books just online resources and trial and error. But if you get a couple of web design bookx about CSS and XHTML and then a PHP book the WordPress custom functions are pretty easy to understand and the online docs are very good http://codex.wordpress.org
