I am redesigning the website for our school district in Durango, CO to use a CMS instead of the hacked together way we are doing things now (http://durangoschools.org). I would like to try to use WordPress to put this together.
The entire main site will use the same general theme (similar to the site listed above). There will be no true 'blogs' but there will be 4-6 'news' blogs for different departments in the district (Public information office, Human Resources, news from the Superintendent, etc). I would like all of these news areas and many other pages (using Pages) to share the same general theme (with some fairly minor differences in different depts.).
On the forums I have seen ways to do multi-blogs but they don't seem to share the theme. Kind of defeats the purpose if I would have to change nav links etc in several different places :)
Can I do this with WordPress? Or do I need to look elsewhere for a solution?
Thank you for any assistance.
