Hi there

I am trying to tweak a component for example the com-weblinks componet doesn't look how I want it.

What file do I access for making changes ...for example go to ... &Itemid=66

I want to change the text and change basically make small changes overall.  I would appreciate an answer to how I can do this overall . I always want to make small changes to a component but am never sure which file to update.

What file to change really depends on what you want to change.  If you just want to change the output, then look at the Beez template and template overrides.

It all depends on what and how much you want to change.

You can either change your template or if it is just the layout of a component you have to take a look at the html file of the particular component.
In v1.5 case com_weblinks is made by the new method so you would find it in de components/com_weblinks/views dir called view.html.php
In v1.0 you'll find a file called weblinks.html.php in the components/com_weblinks dir.
