So im going to start this off by saying Im very new to all of this, web design and html language.
I am planning on setting up a blog/forum type website for a hobby of mine and decided I should start learning the ins and outs of the language first, of course.
I was going to use wordpress originally but I just didnt find it to have the level of customizability I needed but when it comes to dreamweaver i just dont have the expertise to do what i want. If i could combine these two then Id be set. So far in my 1 day of using dream weaver ive figured it out to the point where I have a fairly general layout of what i want the site to look like. Header, body, spacing etc.
Could I turn this into a wordpress theme? is that possible?
Then I could use this layout but wordpress would provide the rigorous blog set up necessities (handling posts and such) which I have no idea how to even get into.
Please forgive my ignorance, Im at the level where I can space my header create 3 working links and link them to other pages ive set up.
Thank you for any help/insight
There are lots of tutorials out there that teach you how to do this. But one that I'd highly recommend comes from Lynda.com (at a price) that is worth every penny.
Thank you, it turns out that I get access to lynda for free through my university so I'll be working through this lesson and probably many others.
edit: Except now im getting the strangest error. When I try to go view that video it redirects me to some random illustrator lesson....
