A few basic questions. I'm talking really, really basic questions...
I'm not even started using Word Press. I'm considering it. I've searched the tutorial sections, but couldn't find clarification on a few things to get me started...
I have a few websites that I've done in Dreamweaver. I'm thinking of adding a blog to one or more of those sites. And I might launch a new site using Word Press.
Either way, my sites are hosted by a third party (I wouldn't have the first clue how to host my own site on my own server). I just do all the design and FTP it to their server(s).
My hosting company also provides Word Press with my hosting account. Evidently, all I have to do to install it is to do so in the online Control Panel of my hosting account. Nothing to it. Or so they would have me believe.
But then what?
Do I need to install Word Press software on my local computer to run Word Press? Or does it run through some sort of online interface that I interact with through a web browser? I don't get it.
Do I create a blog in Word Press (like I would create a web page in Dreamweaver), and then copy the code from Word Press and paste it into a page in Dreamweaver? What?
Or do you just design the whole darn page in Word Press?
And if there is Word Press software to install on my local computer, will it run on Mac OS X Leopard? (Or is the only software I need one of my browsers -- Safari or Firefox?)
Sorry for these bonehead simple questions. But hey, y'gotta start somewhere. :-)
