Im about to start a new project and I need some advice regarding the tools I should use when putting my site together.
What I want to do is: build a fairly simple classifieds website for the people in my local area using WP. After the site begins to make me some money via paid listings I want to expand on the classifieds site and turn it into a news site which then uses the classifieds as one segments that makes up the whole.
I want to build and design it all from scratch potentially using templates because I want to learn the inner workings of my own project so that if later down the track I have problems I know what im doing at least.
Ive been told and ive read that DIY Thesis might be the way to go.
Firstly Im not experienced in web design although I can string together HTML when using good guides and I have put together blogs using the blogger platform.
