I’m designing a new site, until now I’ve done my own HTML+CSS+JQ but I haven’t needed any dynamic (blog-like) pages. The new site I’m designing is mostly static as well but I would like one page for “news.”
My original thought was to do the whole thing on WordPress but I find it easier to do the Static pages by hand.
How can I create the one dynamic page so that new items can be added regularly without going into the code etc?
Personally I would rather turn the whole site into a WordPress theme. Building a custom theme really isn’t that hard and you’ll find loads of tutorials on it online. How the process usually works, and this is how I build all my custom themes, is I start building the whole site in HTML / CSS / JS and once that’s been done, I start breaking it down and building the wordpress theme using that code.
Depending on the deadline of the project, it could be a nice learning experience. Knowing how to build custom WordPress theme’s is always going to be a handy skill to have.
