Need Direction

  • I’m looking to change our current blog to look and feel much like

    Standard website feel.

    What’s the best template to begin with?

    I don’t see why you couldn’t accomplish what they’ve done with TwentyEleven (http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentyeleven) or TwentyTwelve (http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentytwelve). Those are both extremely well-done themes, coded and supported by Automattic (creators of WordPress).

    You could always look at paid-for commercial themes in the future.

    Thanks Luke, it seemed like i should be able to use both. I’m going to give it a try.

    much appreciated!

    a few more questions:
    will i be able to have 3 columns?
    can i include a picture as my header/banner.
    what i mean is the picture with my logo and little league name positioned at the top of the page

    Neither of those themes has a 3-column option. I’d suggest looking at the themes here — try using the filter function for 3 columns and custom header (meaning you can use your own photo):


    thanks for all the help.

    I’m really struggling..would you recommend a paid-for commercial theme?
    i need a custom header, 3 columns, left and right sidebars.

    really appreciate the direction.

    I’ve heard good things about Weaver II which I think has the basics you want. It has a free and a paid version and good support from the developer.

    BTW, it’s not always the case that a paid theme is better than free ones — there are badly coded and hard to use commercial themes and really great free ones. It really depends on the theme and what you need. Check out Weaver’s site and see if you want the Pro version.

    Thanks WPyogi! I’m going crossed-eyed staring at the various options. I’ll check out the Weaver options.



    Does WordPress recommend any custom designers?

    ugh my infancy in this is killing me. the weaver template is not uploading.

    If you paid for it, you should be able to get support from Weaver as well.

    Are you uploading the zip file on yoursite.com/wp-admin/theme-install.php?tab=upload ??
