    I apologize if this isn't in the correct part of the forum, but I need some help. lol. I have wordpress up and working at http://hollywood-bound.com/wp BUT (and there are so many things I need) I would like for the wordpress to be integrated into my website without the sidebar and header. I have looked everywhere for weeks now.

    Also I would really like for the blog to be on index.php page instead of under the /wp directory or file or whatever.

    I am willing to PAY for somebody to install it they way I want it to and I've even signed up on some wordpress installer page but I haven't heard anything yet.

    PLEASE HELP! Sorry if I'm being so vague.

    Leave contact information (email) and somebody might get in touch with you if you want paid help.

    Basically, you're looking to take your existing site and build a theme out of it. Which probably isn't too hard to do, looking at your site. It looks like it needs a bit of rework though, as it's using some outdated concepts (that big image as a 5x5 table? yuck!) and a lot of tables for placement and such.

    Let's address this question piece by piece. You really have two topics to address:

    1. You want to make your blog the main page of your website. Simple. See item 5 in the WordPress installation instructions.
    2. You want to get rid of the sidebar and header. Not sure about this one, but I did find this topic: Get rid of sidebar on ONE page only??. That might get you started.

    Thnx Academiphiliac! To give you guys an idea of what sort of look I was aiming for I liked the way this layout looks like --> http://www.girlattherockshow.net/

    Something to that effect. She has managed to integrate wordpress into her site flawlessly, so it seems. =)

    Thnx.

    Right. What she basically did was to create a WordPress theme and then change her site to use WordPress for pretty much everything. You need somebody to take your site and turn it into a theme. That will do exactly what you want, more or less.

    I'll shoot you an email later today with an example. Shouldn't be hard to pop a quick theme out of that code.
