We are a developing agency using wordpress version3.3.1 for the first time.I have a set of static pages and another set of dynamic pages.We have a set of HTML pages made by a designer.The approach that we are following is
1. Placed my wordpress folder at C:\wamp\www
2.Copied the content of twentyeleven theme as it is and placed it in a new folder at C:\wamp\www\wordpress\wp-content\themes\customfolder .
3.Replaced the css file of twentyeleven with my custom css.
4.Copied the <head> part and <footer> part as html and placed in the placeholder for header and footer in the custom header and footer plugin.
5.Went to the Dashboard and set the theme to my custom theme.
6.Created a new page.
7.Placed the <body> part of the html in the wordpress page section.
What is the best approach to go forward.Do we need to make static pages using wordpress dashboard(No physical files only entry is DB) and the dynamic pages as physical files in my directory.Please suggest how should we proceed as we are new to wordpress.
Our other query is that is there a way to manage the content of the pages through wordpress.
