[closed] Templates/best for website with blog? (3 posts)

    I am brand new to WordPress. I have read most of the info and FAQs, however, I still have questions. These questions are related to a site I will be setting up for a client (who is not computer literate -- she can use email).

    The website will have about 15 (About, testimonials, etc.). It will technically be a website with a Blog but a colleague suggested WordPress. Will WordPress.org work for that? Does WordPress.com work like that? Which do you suggest for a site like this? There will also be a page to buy a product.

    Can I use my own template? If so, where does WordPress software and WordPress in general come into play?

    After clicking Blog > Theme Directory, I couldn't find all the thousands of Themes (are these templates we can use)?

    Once I upload the blog to the host, will my client be able to post to the blog or will she need to download the software to her computer to post?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I am also in the same situation. I would like to integrate WP into an existing website so that the UI has the same look and feel.

    I believe you may have to modify the WP code to include your menu and then mod the CSS and XHTML to mirror the design of your Website.
    I tried to include WP within an iframe and got a recursion problem.

    The book WP for dummies is OK and has a lot of information that helps to demystify WP for the newbie but I obvouisly find it lacking for information on modifying WP for integration into an existing Website.
