Best advice i could probably offer is download a basic theme that isn;t too complex...ie...(and i expect to get flamed here...;) not much scripting, no colour changes etc just basic everyday modules...maybe ots standard would be good. Install the theme and well just use litestep for a little while. Then just open up the step.rc file and study it and compare docs for each module with how things are constructed into the step.rc file...pretty soon you'll soon start to see how things come together and work. Soon you'll be making a few little tweaks here and there with someone else's theme..substituting graphics for your own...tweaking modules etc... Then you'll feel like " hey i wanna make my own theme..." Then you just start to experiment, fudging your way through things like we all do... like anything it's just time..be patient and before long you'll be posting your own themes and litestep will have become an invaluable indisposable godsend like it is to all of us... apologies if this is long winded.
