Theme Customization

I'm working on a custom theme, but can't figure out how to edit the layout of the main part of the page...i.e. where the stories and blocks are located. Does anyone know where this file is located?

This is how themes work: They start with header.thtml which builds the site's header and then goes on to include the left column of blocks (look for the variable left_blocks and the leftblocks.thtml file). The middle part of a site is built of the stories (storytext.thtml / storybodytext.thtml). The footer.thtml file then builds the right column of blocks (variable right_blocks, file right_blocks.thtml) and the site's footer. Blocks themselves consist of the blockheader.thtml and blockfooter.thtml files. Try to work your way through these files and it should become obvious. Hope that helps. bye, Dirk
