    hi! i am looking to change my website over to WordPress. it is being hosted through godaddy.com and i can see all of the FTP Files on the godaddy.com site. However, the person who was previously working with it was doing it through Microsoft FrontPage. I also notice on the side panel of the godaddy site it says i can install wordpress as an "app" i do not want to crash the site..would this make sense to do?

    also, i do not want the site to look like a blog..i want to have it look like a website with a side panel that has links to different categories. will this be something relatively easy to do? and can someone start me in the right direction?

    THANKS!!!!!

    You can convert your HTML site to WordPress. Start with the codex:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates

    There are lots of tutorials that will walk you through the steps and can easily be found with a quick search.

    Depending on your ability/time to invest/willingness to learn you may be better off finding a pre-made free or paid theme that fills your design criteria and using that instead then re-adding your content to the WordPress site.

    Thank you so much for that info! Will this just transfer it over or do i need to do something on godaddy.com to transfer the files?
