    That's what I was asking from myself. :D If I had a guide like this, things would have been much easier at the beginning.

    I am a non-technical guy looking to use WP as a CMS. I am slowly figuring things out but still not quite there. Anyone here willing to review my site and make some recommendations? I will probably have to hire out some of the tech work but I do not want to do that until I know exactly what I need. Some advise I am looking for:

    1.) Good theme that will match my business. I purchased the current theme from ithemes.com but I have had some feedback that the dark nature of the site is not good.
    2.) How to structure the pages for optimum ease and user experience
    3.) How to better incorporate photos and images
    4.) What plugins should I use?
    5.) Setting up a good contact page with submit forms

    I am working on a new logo now so once that is done I can develop the header image.

    If your interested let me know and I will send you the link.

    I have a similar question. I have a sister company that I want to repeat the same design as the other company. Do I have to go back to square one with hosting and installation of WP or can I host in the same location, create a site with the same theme and then point my domain to the site?

    Hello...
    I want to add check box "Notify me of followup comments via e-mail" and check box "Subscribe to comments via email" in my comment form. What plugin should I use to add those things ?

    Then, I want to add RSS Feed and Trackback link in the bottom of every article. If I am not mistaken, I should edit template page. But I don't understand how to edit it. Could you please explain more detail.

    Thanks before

    Ive built 4 WP (free) blogs over the past weeks, and the traffic generation is amazing, when social book marked. It is so easy and looks great. I have signed up for hosting now, to do it proper. I will do a mix of affiliate and adsense sites.
    Anyone have strong preferences?
    regards

    Fivestar,
    I'm going to be starting a blog in the next couple of days, however I am unfamiliar with the term 'social book marked', is it easy to do?
