    Well, I hope I answer this correctly cause I”m still learning…sorry. Not using a CMS, I am working in the code and I am only using PHP in the navigation and footer so that I don’t have to repeat the same html 15 different times. So far that’s all I really know how to do with PHP…. I don’t have any includes. My header looks like this….

            <div id="header-logo" class="span4">
                <a href="index.php"><img src="images/SOS_logo.jpg" alt="SOS logo" /></a>
            <div id="header-nav" class="span7 header-nav">
                    <ul class="mainmenu">
                        <li><a href="index.php" <?php if($currentPage == 'index.php') {
                            echo 'id="current"';
                                } ?>
                                    >Home</a> </li>
                        <li><a href="services.php"<?php if($currentPage == 'services.php') {
                            echo 'id="current"';
                                } ?>

    …….. etc

    I have had a similar experience. I am a graphic designer learning to code my own sites but I had a client who wanted to control her backend so WordPress became a better option. What i did was explain that I was going to use a template and purchase the bundle to customize the css so that she would be able to control her text but I would control the design, even if a small amount of it. I was honest and explained that she could do the process without me and save some money or I could do it, and then train her on it. She went with that and I charged $350 to set the whole thing up and then do WordPress training too. Really she paid me for the hand holding but sometimes that is all a client wants.

    I am also new to the responsive design realm. Something I have found very helpful with my own introduction into responsive web design is using the 1140 grid system. I downloaded from this site here… Included in the download are css files for IE issue fixes that are ready for you to drop your own css in. Just as a side note, i had some issues understanding their files in the beginning an had to email them a question. They responded very quickly and were really helpful. Hope this helps you.
