    When I switch to Compositing, you say to switch to world mode, but I don’t have that. I have it in Cycles Render, and I went to compositing, and I have Blender 2.7.8, but it isn’t there. (By the way, I am fairly new to Blender, and often don’t follow tutorials very well).

      Make sure you’re using Cycles as your rendering engine. Once you have that enabled, you can add a new world shader.
