Basically I am trying to create a static homepage for my website with an inline logo and header, centered slider, and 2 rows of 4 text widgets which will be images of my blog categories. Once a blog category is clicked I want it to be a brick grid blog theme like http://www.themememe.com/wordpress-theme-themememe-aperio-prototype. Can someone please guide me? I am new to wordpress and am having trouble trying to adapt to a theme.
Any help would be much appreciated.
