[wdvltalk-social] Question on Wordpress

I'm not sure if anyone feels like answering questions from me, but I am 
seriously in need of a nudge.

I've been away from activity, though still in touch, for a few years. 
Among the better reasons is that what was supposed to be a fairly short 
poem of about 40 lines turned into a major project, and I now have a 
long book that in its early, post-poem, days was going to be short. So I 
am now setting up my website, as simply as possible using Worpress and 
Boozurk theme [That theme because I want the book cover pic on the top 

I will be puting this volume up initially. Later I will be adding both 
those existing works, and those on the long to-do list I have. The 
articles, blogs in this context - which relate to each area, need an 
immediate visual distinction; My plan is to put a strap above the normal 
article heading, as well as using categories, of course.

All the advice I have seen on templates leaves me pretty mystified, 
perhaps because I don't recall enough php yet. I think the relevant part 
of page.php is this:

<div id="posts_content">
<?php if ( have_posts() ) {
         while ( have_posts() ) {
             the_post(); ?>
<?php boozurk_hook_before_post(); ?>
<div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
<?php boozurk_extrainfo(); ?>
<?php boozurk_hook_before_post_title(); ?>
<?php boozurk_featured_title( array( 'featured' => true ) ); ?>
<?php boozurk_hook_after_post_title(); ?>
<?php boozurk_hook_before_post_content(); ?>
<div class="storycontent">
<?php the_content(); ?>

I can't work out what to do to turn this into a template, and how or 
where to place the page [and post which I believe will be similar] that 
will be called to put that strap above the heading. And how to make sure 
it will be called when that template is selected. In part I am not sure 
where the page layout is kept; though I take it one simply adds the 
strap which distinguishes that group of pages [and separately posts]  
above the title code on that.

Many thanks for any advice.
