I have never used a CMS before and it was suggested WordPress would be a good place to start owing to it`s ease of use.
I consider myself reasonably skilled with xhtml/css and in time will probably understand how to create my own themes.
What I don`t understand is the part of posting content, images and such. With a regular webpage, content would be placed in divs.
Say for example I created a theme similar to (I may even buy this one)
How and where do I add the content for the various "boxes" across the pages? When I open wordpress and go to the "page" area, there is only the one large editor box. What about the sidebar and other boxes, where are these located in admin? In fact I don`t even know which box the main content editor if for.
Is there a website anywhere such as "WordPress as a CMS for dummies"?
