I need a website! (8 posts)

    Hi-- I hope this is the right place to ask this...
    I currently have a small commercial website where I sell Irish Pennywhistles. The site was written in Front Page which is no longer supported and my web host suggested Word Press.
    Here's the old site:
    http://www.busmanwhistles.com

    Problem is, I know next to nothing about how to do this. I don't want a blog, just a simple site with several pages, with links from page to page. Maybe the ability to play some music on the site.

    Can someone steer me in the right direction?
    All themes seem to be pretty bloggish, which is no help. Many thanks in advance

    You want to use WordPress as it will handle all your needs. Even though a lot of themes are bloggish, they can be customized for your needs. You will need to take a little time to learn a few things, but WP has a large community to help you out.

    Please do not respond to attempts to solicit work via these forums. If anyone does post such an advertisement (as the previous posters did) or suggest that you use any site other than http://jobs.wordpress.net/ please add a modlook tag to the topic. A forum moderator will be along shortly to remove the offending post and deal with the poster in question.

    @wpadvices: Soliciting work is not allowed on these forums - full stop.

    The point is that if you have WordPress installed on your server, you won't have to learn anything in terms of programming languages or whatever. You'll just need to drag and drop for updating text, images or even colors on your site (it depends on the theme you choose).

    Other than that, in case you decide to expend your site later, it won't be a problem because it'll be already on WordPress. So, it's future-proof and that's super wise to be so. :)

    Buy the WordPress for dummies book, it's great and maybe think about buying a theme or having one made especially for you.
