    Can you recommend tutorial(s) that are enlightening and/or provide good sources for purchase?

    Thanks.

    Have you reviewed Child Themes? That is the definitive guide.

    Yes I have. I'm weak in php so that's discouraging, and I found a site that had some good looking hemes, they called child themes. A couple were impressive. So I'm going back and forth from writing the code (which is not another learning curve I don't need at this time, or just being a hack and buying a prefab theme.

    I feel uninformed and gun shy of getting into something which will waste my time and pull my hair.

    I'm afraid there's no shortcut to creating a custom child theme. You have to know some CSS and probably some HTML & PHP too. Maybe you could have a look at a very customisable theme instead - like http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/suffusion

    I have CSS3 and HTML5 covered. I'm looking for the content management plus the e-commerce functionality that woo-commerce offers. Building the structure the right way is my concern.

    Esmi, what do you think of http://premium.wpmudev.org

    Thanks for your help. I'll bet you have a lot of time logged with WP.

    Personally, that's not a resource that I use. Still not sure why you can't use a theme like Suffusion with a suitable ecommerce plugin.

    Valid point. I looked it over. Tell me is it as turn key as http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/e-commerce/ ?

    Seems to me that most of the work is done.

    I could be wrong, it sure looks interesting.

    As I said, I don't use any products from wpmudev.org. :-)

    I bet YouTube is good for this sort of thing.
