I'm redoing my portfolio site via WordPress by modifying another theme (in hindsight, not the best idea) and aside from changing the header, footer & background images, it's close to being done.
However, the main problems for me, aside from learning code as I go along, are that the site won't let me go into individual posts on the front page. It simply links back to the home page, displaying "Page Not Found" in the title, but still showing all content. Bizarrely, when I preview other themes, this functionality is restored, but when activated, it's the same as before.
Any suggestions or ideas? The work in progress is at http://www.ciaranoconnor.com/wordpress/
