    Hi there everyone

    I'm completely new to WordPress, only just installed it yesterday. I'm using the Pinboard theme but have no idea where to go from there.

    I have an idea of what i want my site to look like but don't know where to start, what plugins or widgets i'd need or what coding i may need to type.

    Please have a look at the two pictures below. The first one is what i want my homepage to look like and the second is how i want to menus to come down.

    If you could give me some guidance as to how i can do this that would be great. Like I said i really have no idea what i'm doing

    Thank you for all your help in advance :)

    So far as what you want to do -- certainly it's possible but it may require a lot of customization of your theme. Using a theme that has the basic layout and functions you want will make it easier to do what you want. Be aware that you should consider using a Child Theme if you are going to make changes to whatever theme you use.
