Hi all. Im a web developer, I know my html's, my css's, my php's and very familiar with my cba's and my fuc and k's with a degree for punching monitors and tearing up reference books.
So. Im new to WordPress. I have worked with it on a job with someone else (who knows wordpress), I have had a fair bit of time playing around with it and I own a copy of the WordPress for Dummies book. Now I need to use it for a company I am working with.
What they want is a very simple news page. I am really trying to understand Pages, Posts and Categorys. I think I understand that a page is just a static page as like another web page.
As for Categorys, I just don't understand, there doesnt seem to have much options there with them.
And a post is the main conetent, posts are used to publish content.
* They want a very simple one page where it shows up news items, like an introduction into that news item with a link.
* That news item then links to a seperate page where it shows the rest of that news item.
* I would like on the first page to have all these news items listed in an archive by month. So when you click on that month it shows up all the news items in that month and year.
I have built the template myself including the rest of the site. The news page is found at http://intertech-new.eyepreview.co.uk/blog/ if you wish to look.
Can anyone help me, I just really need to know the basic and how to get started. I hav read forums, tutorials and gone through my wordpress for dummies book and it just doesnt fit. Please help. Thank you everyone, anyone who does in advance and I will thank you and discuss my progress with you along the way. Thank you.
