    MT 2.661 is pretty old though …

    Any reason why you are moving ?

    I really like WP at all. But i´m thinking in moving, mainly because MT 2.661, im my humble opinion, is far easier to create a custom layout, template, etc. Its just create a page and do some copy&paste. And i think the WP 1.5 theme system is too complicated for a non-programmer like me, i don´t know nothing about PHP or MYSQL, and i´m still trying to understand the way to create a theme in WP. It have some really beautiful themes, but i like to create my own. But for now i´m just researching to see if is a good idea to move.

    Have you visited the WordPress Codex with step by step instructions on how to create your own theme? There are also MANY articles listed there and on the net to help you design your theme.

    If the theme is the only reason you are changing, then consider choosing one of the more than 300 themes available and NOT designing your own, only tweaking.
