Hey friends,

I designed a web page in Photoshop. I want to build this site in WordPress, now. I am not sure, if I can succeed. Can you help? I got some great WordPress help from here. So we could try together. I picked a theme with two sidebars, a simple one. So far, so good.

Here's my web page:
http://daten.design-books.de/playingmac/wordpress/

Here's my design:

You see, the design is not complicated, but there is something special, here and there. For example, there is no scrolling. And, back then, I actually picked the screen size as best for all desktop and laptop macs - there should never be any scrolling and much of the screen should be filled.

I have all kinds of questions, but here are some (in case you agree I picked the right theme):
1) I want the backgrounds to go away, everything should be translucent.
2) I want the header part to go away, mostly, just the logo and later maybe a banner etc.
3) I want everything not be centered, but in the upper left hand corner.
4) Can I specify the length of a post, so that it creates multiple pages? Maybe I need a plug-in for this.
5) Can I build a static web page, how? Is it difficult? If you look through the images, you see my idea for a web page.

Greetings, thanks,
Peter

I find the musical instrument icons being used down the left-hand column to be very distracting and busy.

That's a nice thing to say. I can think about this. Who can help me with the programming? reader50, should I have posted this is in another forum? I got excellent WordPress help from here when I built my stuff.

I agree with Thorzdad. This is the right place.

Is this another school project?

My friends,

another school project! No... Just for me, and my sister, we wanted to open up a mac gaming website, as there are none any longer (in the world). There is only macinplay.de, my former website for mac games in Germany, but now I wanted to build a new one. So I try the design, maybe I go back to macinplay, too. I have to see.

Thanks for getting in touch, giving the feedback, can you help me modifying the theme? Is it the right theme?

Thanks already, be funny,
PeterParker
