After following your instructions and adding some comics, I now understand that wordpress is a bit differently structured than how I expected based on other frameworks (javascript SPAs and asp.net mvc).

What I am trying to do, is to create a new section call Dndorks located here
http://dorksidecookies.net/dndorks/ and have it display the first comic from the comic easel plugin.

Then URLs specifying an individual comic should show the comic. An example is here: http://dorksidecookies.net/comic/dndorks-the-college-years-the-invitation/

The comic shows up, but it shows up above the content because I figured out I could put this code, <?php do_action('comic-area'); ?> <?php do_action('comic-blog-area'); ?> into the header-nosidebar.php file. I know this is incorrect, but I don’t know which file the /comic/ path is linked to.

I found an article talking about integrating the Easel plugin into a theme, http://comiceasel.com/2014/05/14/editing-a-theme-to-support-comic-easel/, but the blog article assumes an understanding of the theme files which I couldn’t figure out. I tried editing a dozen different files and the header-nosidebar.php was the first that made any change whatsoever.

I would appreciate any advice you could give me. I’d also be interested in whether you had time to implement this functionality for a service fee on my website. If so, I’d be interested in a quote.
