Anything is possible! Or is it?

    I just want to preface this by saying I’m a complete amatuer when it comes to CSS and design! I know pretty much enough to get me by and probably not enough to get this project completed quickly.

    I create two designs in photoshop that I want to use for my WrestlingBlog.com page.

    Front.gif is how I want the index.php to look.

    Pages.gif is how I want the rest of the blog to look.

    What I have done so far

    I figured that getting the rest of the blog pages would be much easier because they are already in the traditional blog format. I decided to use Kubrick as my base. (edit: You can view a live preview here: WrestlingBlog.com

    My Question to the Community

    Any secrets on how to get the front.gif design into a reality? This is pretty much how I think it can be done…

    Step 1> Create a new footer.php (indexfooter.php ?), with the green block, recent comments, and tag cloud plugin.

    Step 2> Edit index.php to include only 1 entry, put a flickr gallery at the bottom of the loop.

    Step 3> create a new sidebar.php (indexsidebar.php).

    Feedback would be great! I’ll consider releasing it as a theme when finished 🙂

  • i would say that thats possible, wouldnt know the wordpress code to put stuff but they layout is do-able. Nifty bit of CSS would do it.

    1. You don’t need to put that in the footer. I’d use the home.php template (which takes precedence over the index.php when displaying the main/front page of your blog) and add another div (green) with the proper tags to dispay whatever you need.
    2. Use a customized Loop to display only one post – you can even make it to be from a certain category.
    I am not using the flickr… but there must be a way to display those pics; I’ve seen done on many blogs.
    3. You can use a custom sidebar for the front.
