Hello all. I am new to WP and this will be my first attempt at creating a website. I have no prior experience so please tell me if you require more information.
I am building a website to sell beats. I know nothing about code or plug ins or anything like that. I understand each "theme" has certain capabilities and customization options associated with it. My problem is I simply do not know what to look for and what I may need in the future. I do not mind spending $100 or so for a more professional theme with more options (am I understanding this correctly?). I have seen a select few themes specific to "beat sales", but I was curious, is this the best way to go or would it be just as easy to modify a more general theme to fit my needs? I am scared of purchasing a limited theme and wasting my time and money. And I do not want to look like every other person who purchased that "theme" for the same purpose.
I know I need the following:
-Ability to customize fonts and backgrounds (upload pics, logos, etc)
-e-commerce capable through paypal (i think I will use myflashstore)
-ability to handle mp3 audio within a single player or multiple players
-multiple pages for: blog, purchasing music, educational videos or docs, contact form, possible forum, etc (I guess this is where I need clarification on the level of modification I can achieve "per page" and I am sure it varies by theme)
** the much bigger section would be titled "Things I do Not Know I Need" ... if you have any suggestions or know things I may need that a newbie like myself would not please chime in with your knowledge.
My domain name was purchased through godaddy and I will most likely use hostgator to host the site.
Any specific input or general direction pointing would be helpful. Thanks.
