I am very new to website coding in general, to templates and the logic behind template terminology found within wordpress.
I am currently deciding between different website themes with the final goal of creating a professional website for the company that I work for. We are currently using the Enterprise theme powered by studiopress. Here is our current website: http://360eg.com/
We do not have the log in info anymore to retrieve the original CSS sheets. Would this hurt our chances of engaging in a standard FTP? Essentially: Will I be able to delete or sort of "freeze" the website when adding in newly modified information to the wordpress template? I don't mind manually adding in modified information, I'm more concerned with there being two websites.
I also know that you have to provide a URl within the template
Most of the modifications that I am looking to make will be applied to the landing page.
--Adding an News Feed
--Changing Background Color
--Adding rotating images
--Adding social media widgets
--Adding metadata for SEO purposes
To the Different Web Pages
Adding a blog with an RSS Feed and one that will allow others to comment and me to interact with them.
Adding wrap text so that I can add in more pictures within these pages to accompnay the text
