Dynamic Page on Static Site
# January 7, 2013 at 4:51 pm
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?# January 7, 2013 at 4:54 pm

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.# January 7, 2013 at 6:37 pm
check out http://pagelime.com
SUPER easy to add CMS-like functionality to an already finished site by dropping in some classes (cms-editable and cms-repeat which creates repeatable regions).
it’s free for the first 3 sites and has some really nice features.
mr coyier did a tutorial on it a few years back: http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/74-editable-css3-image-gallery/# January 8, 2013 at 1:26 am
I like the wp.tutsplus.com website for WordPress theme development, they have some nice tips and tutorials for it.
