    Hello all,

    I realize that this is a bit of a broad questions but im just looking for some advice/ guidance on this subject.

    I have a basic e-commerce website which displays products (Nothing sold through the website) which displays a list of categories. When a category is selected a list of sub categories is displayed. Each subcategory can then be selected and then a more detailed page for that product is displayed.

    My client has asked me to convert this website to wordpress so he can edit product pages & blog etc..

    I am fairly experienced in PHP & SQL but really am struggling to find good resources on how to go about achieving this.

    Can anybody recommend some good information links or advice that will help me along the way?

    Thank you.

  2. There is a lot of great information in the codex (see the Docs link above) that should get you started.

    Here are a few places I started with:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Blog_Design_and_Layout
    ... just some ideas.

    This page may be important based on your description, too
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_categories

    Your experience in "PHP & SQL" will get you through most if not all the code samples and write-ups, everything else will rest in your creativity.
