I am working with a non-profit organization, and we are looking to develop a solid, clean 3-column theme/template for the site. We have been trying to develop something that mimics the look and feel of a Website, but powered by WordPress as a CMS solution.
Looking for some examples, we found a terrific one at http://www.designorati.com/. Sure it doesn't look anything like what we are aiming for, so why is it terrific? Because it does exactly what we want: it mimics a regular HTML site, but is powered by WordPress. For example, click on the DTP link in the left menu. It takes you to http://www.designorati.com/DTP/. That's what we want.
I am trying to imitate the site -- in look -- the site we currently have, and trying to bring the CSS over, as well. We will need to develop a CSS for printing.
Can anyone point me at such a solution that may be out there already, or guide me? I don't have a lot of time, and yes, I've tried developing a theme based on the info posted at http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages and other sections. Things just didn't work out perfectly.
Or, is there someone who can work with us? The primary site is at http://www.AwakeInAmerica.org/, which is what we are trying to make into a theme/template we can manage in WP. We have WP 2.05 installed now.
A simple illustration of the actual layout of the various server-side includes, as used on the site, can be viewed at http://www.AwakeInAmerica.org/Admin/AIAsiteLayout.png.
