  • Resolved tezartdesign



    first off: I’m looking to remove the extension to the website, if [ redundant link removed ] doesn’t work anymore, check out [ redundant link removed ]. (There’s nothing on there yet though :p).

    I’m completely new to WordPress, if it’s anything remotely like Joomla I’d like to be ahead of the game and know exactly what extensions are the best for my intended use.

    For perspective: lifetolegend will be a combination of a blog, an archive (modified articles from blog posts) and in time a forum. The website is dedicated to nature, fictional creatures and a little bit of science, in an effort to create a huge archive that will help artists and writers in their storytelling. But this archive will also be very useful to anyone that’s curious about what legends exist in this world. So, the main audience is anyone that has a storytelling component in their work or hobby, the secondary audience is anyone that’s curious about any of the subjects that are discussed.

    Addons/plugins I will need for sure:
    – Mailing list
    – Forum
    – Google adsense
    – Some plugin that allows people to rate an image, I want to basically put some artworks of different people within a facebook group I run at the bottom of each article, visitors can then rate their favorite artwork, so the most favored will be shown at the top. I don’t want to play favorites myself and it needs to stay low maintenance as the website will end up being huge in the end.
    – Potentially a webshop someday for merch.
    – A solid plugin to maintain an easy to search archive (not only a good search function with customizable search functions/buttons in it, but also an A to Z archive for people who just want to browse around and be inspired).
    – And what appealing template would you use for a project like this? I would prefer one that can be updated/easily replaced without messing with the layouts and placements of components.

    That’s what’s in my head so far. But any tips and ideas are more than welcome, I’m completely new in this game, so anything is more than appreciated!

    Thank you!
