Two Templates (4 posts)

    Hello!

    I'm helping a friend with her website, and she wants a portfolio + blog. I suggested her to choose within a few templates I've bought that have different templates for portfolio and blog inside the same template.

    But if she doesn't like any of these, I would like to give her some options, without buying any template.

    So my question is:

    if she has a domain called for example cupcake.com and she chooses a portfolio template for this, can she add a sub-domain like blog.cupcake.com and choose a different template for this sub-domain?

    how would she log into the different "parts" of her website?

    thank you so much!

    What you are describing sounds like WordPress Multisite but that does seem rather OTT in this situation. Will the portfolio pages be Posts or Pages?

    Rather OTT? :) I don't know the meaning of this...

    But answering your question, yes, the portfolio would have pages, not posts.

    For example this kind of template (http://organicthemes.com/demo/portfolio/) but not this one, because she cannot afford it. And then we would choose a random free template for her blog.

    I would love to know how I can build a template by my own hands, but I can't seem to understand how, though everyone says that it's simple. I don't have any of the tools, asides from notepad. I know CSS, but I can't understand PHP and HTML enough to build a thing on my own.

    Oh - sorry! OTT = Over The Top. A rather extreme solution for what might be a simple problem.

    Since these portfolio pages are going to be static Pages, you might want to look at building 1 or more custom page templates. The combination of a custom template and some additional CSS could allow you to create a completely different layout, color or look for these pages.
