    I have a basic WP theme (Note Blog Core) where my pages are listed in the sidebar under the "Articles" heading. The problem is they are really tiny and I want to make them bigger. Idk where to modify this in the code(or any other way to do it). I would also like to eventually move the list of articles out of the sidebar completely and have them at the top center of the page. Can anyone help with this?

    Thanks

    You'd do that in the CSS - there may be more than one CSS file for your theme - post a link and I'll tell you where.

    Again, with a link I think I can help. It's so much easier to figure it out when I can see the code online.

    Notes Blog Core Theme

    I want to make a section between the site title and the first article title (At the top of the page) where I list my articles in large text. This will attract more attention to them than in the sidebar. Let me know if you have any ideas.

    The only way to do that would be to write some PHP that would create the list and insert the text into the page where you want it, and then style the text with your CSS.

    The easiest way to do that would probably be to create a new page template with that PHP in it where you want the list inserted, as a sort of sub-menu, then specify that template when you publish a new page.

    I appreciate the help. Honestly, that stuff is way over my head at the moment, but I want and need to learn it. Can you point me in the right direction a bit more? Never done php. How do I create a list? I'm going to watch some php youtube videos right now.

    General knowledge of PHP is helpful - learn as much as you can. I can't tell you specifically how to do what you want because I don't know what theme you're using, but honestly the easiest way to do what you want is to purchase a theme with the layout you want already coded.

    Failing that, create a child theme of whatever theme you are using, and put your extra PHP and CSS into the child theme, so that when WordPress and your theme update, you will still have your child theme and the site won't break.
    "A WordPress child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the parent theme, and allows you to modify, or add to, the functionality of that parent theme"

    Learn more about child themes here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
    and a good tutorial here: http://op111.net/53/
