Support » Fixing WordPress » How close to this design can I get?

  • Hello all, my first post…

    Just coming into have a play with wordpress, previously my mission was to create a fully functional photography website using traditional html, after a few weeks of learning the basics it occurred to me that it would be a huge management and maintenance overhead, which seems to have been solved by wordpress to some degree.

    The question I have is how close can I get to working from my previous design template?

    I would like the website to have online ordering for customers interested in prints, I assume wordpress does not restrict functionality like this? Also do you all recommend signing up to graph paper press in a bid to control the design more tightly?

  • You can do that exact design and functionality with WordPress.

    I’ve been reading through the documentation, and as I understand it, you essentially modify the CSS based on a chosen theme? for example make the content area wider, change the background color and swap it for an image etc

    Or you can use you existing design, add a style.css with the theme header, and replace the parts of the site you want WordPress to replace with a template tag, and then expand and do more from there.
