Is wordpress for me? (4 posts)

    I´ve been looking at VOX and I fell completely in love. I love the beautiful design on all the themes and the incredibly smooth integration with services like flickr, youtube and also upload of images and videos from your computer.

    However, there are a few dealbreakers for me.
    First of all;
    Ít seems like I can't remove the VOX toolbar. (reminds me of the Blogger bar, which can be removed btw)
    Secondly; I don't seem to be able to add ad zones to my blog. I'd like to insert a few zones with iframe code or java script. Also VOX puts a google adsense on my blog and I can't remove it.
    Thirdly; It seems like I can't automatically allow comments from anonymous users.

    So! It would seem VOX is not so good as I first thought. But it is really beautiful and the integration with some services as previously mentioned is really good.
    Can I get this working on wordpress?
    A three column clean good looking theme. flickr images and videos uploaded from my computer and from youtube, recent comments, tag cloud, ability to insert other rss feeds.

    phew, long post. Thanks a bunch if anybody has the patience to answer :)

    Hmmm... According to your profile you are actively using WP for about 4-5 months. I assume you are familiar with the Codex, with the existence of more than a thousand themes and hundreds of plugins.

    And all the "keywords" you put in your wishlist should result in tens of posts here.

    As far as I know, everything you listed can be done with WP (and plugins). + work.

    You can definitely integrate Flickr and YouTube on your WP. Recent Comments is easy. Tag cloud is easy (try Ultimate Tag Warrior). Bringing in RSS feeds can be done, but it takes a bit of understanding. For themes look here

    However, you can never please moshu, it doesn't matter what you say, he will put you down. So if you choose WP, be prepared for a mod on the Support forum to ridicule any questions you might post.
