    Hey all, I'm the graphic/web coordinator for my student newspaper and currently we use an outdated and frankly, ugly looking website that I'm looking to renew and reformat using wordpress. The main reason we want to switch over is because we force our readers to download a PDF of our weekly newspaper instead of uploading stories to our webpage.

    Currently we use the hosting application Fetch, using Dreamweaver to update our html. I want to know what kind of problems I should be expecting to run into with this switch and also some pointers and tips from people more experienced.

    I'm a novice with website design, I understand HTML and I have a little over 2 months to complete this long term project.

    Well, simply settnig up WP is easy. And if you can find a theme you like, also easy. If you wish to customize, things may get more difficult, depending on what you are looking for. A lot of themes have many options to style your site. But if you have specific requirements, it may take custom coding.

    The real question, what are your plans with the old site? Do you plan to transfer content somehow?
