I'm gearing up for the monster site and I may need some assistance here. I'm looking for some simple advice, and willing to entertain offers as well.
I have been using wordpress for some time now. I just dipped into Joomla! and the transition looks like it is going to be quite smooth from an administrative perspective.
I have a new site I'm putting together and for starters I have decided on a Joomla! template. I have decided to use wordpress to blog on the site instead of the joomla option, so I would like my wp template to match the joomla site.
I would also like to add touches of the joomla template design to fireboard for my forum.
I am probably in way over my head. I know how to exchange a simple graphic in a banner for example on wp, but I have a feeling swapping the coding around will not be as simple for what I am trying to do here. I have a feeling the word cascading style sheet is in my future.
I have seen an example of another site that added a wp blog flawlessly. You feel like you are on the same site.
I have also seen an altered fireboard template, so I know this can be done as well.
Has anyone else done any work tweeking all these elements? Are there any short cuts that might help me?
I'm all ears. If anyone thinks they might want to tackle this and wants to see the template I've fallen for please send a pm or post here. If you're looking for a sugar mama you may want to click your back button on your browser.
I'm purchasing access to the template, so I will have the source files to start with.
Can anyone recommend a proper plan?
