Support » Fixing WordPress » Is this concept doable?

  • I am starting to develop a website with reasonably simple, but dynamic functionality, and I would like to know if going for WordPress is the right idea.

    I have worked with WordPress before, but that concerned styling within the relative safe format of a ‘standard’ wordpress layout.
    I’m also relatively fluent in CSS and HTML.

    I have included a diagram of what I am going for, and I think that explains it best. Basically I want something close to your average ‘online store’ layout, where each new wordpress ‘post’ is displayed as a small square image preview. Once clicked that preview will lead to a different page showing the rest of the information contained in that post. (It won’t be a real store as there will be no checkout process.)

    Is WordPress right for this concept? How would I make it interpret my post data in this way? It would be great if someone could push me in the right direction..

    Here is the diagram:

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hi kuran,

    There are quite a few e-commerce or portfolio themes available that should offer that type of layout. You could also try using one of the many easily customized themes such as Constructor.

    Good luck!

    I think its all about how you style and display “recent posts” and style the individual single.php page – shouldn’t be that difficult to even do from scratch, actually, you could even just do it by styling the posts from the loop.php file.
