Doubts when building a full site (4 posts)

    Hi all.
    I want to make my new site under wordpress CMS. I already know how to do my own blog template, but I've never worked before on a full site. I will try to organize my doubts.

    - my website will have a simple index, with just 3 links for 3 "categories" (photograph, design, blog)

    - I need 3 idioms for each one of these categories

    - 2 categories (blog and design) are in white the other (photography) is black

    - I will have sub-menus for each one of those main categories.

    So I ask which is the "correct", or the best way to achieve this? Any idea will be fully appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Search through the WordPress theme tab and google to find a theme that looks like it can do the basics of what you want and then customize it. Sounds like you can do pretty much everything you need to with CSS.

    Hey Donuts, thanks for your quick answer. I figure out that customizing an existing theme is more time expendable than make my own, besides I already have my own html codified. However I don’t want to reinvent the well when doing my site on wordpress because I fell I'm messy with pages/categories/custom templates to do a 3 language and one color per section (two colors) website.

    I think about to create 03 main categories (for each language) so I create different custom templates for the colors, header-black.php, header-white.php and so on. I don’t know if this is the easiest and “correct” way.

    You may have already found your answer already, but you can create custom CSS to style different categories. So, depending on the theme, your best bet is probably to find the CSS that controls those background elements and change it.
