PaperbackReader has been around since 2002 in various forms. Each time, I've done the coding myself, and until about a month ago, it was in a homerolled PHP/MySQL design. I got tired of keeping it up, and wanted the features that wordpress has to offer, so I'm in the process of switching over. In so doing, I've lost what my site looked like.
I have a theme that "works" the way I want, but it doesn't "look" the way I want.
There are essentially 2 pages:
The home page, which is a 3 column layout.
#1 is "Columns" that is, weekly pieces of 1000 words or more
#2 is "Reviews" sporadic reviews of 300-500 words
#3 is the admin stuff, advertising, archives, links, the general wordpress stuff
You can see the new layout here, I've lost the old one, sadly.
Then the content page, which is 2 columns
Column 1 is the content, and it spans column 1 & 2. Column 3 is still the admin stuff.
Here's what the content page used to look like:
That old page also has my old header and logo, the guy standing at the comic book spinner rack:
What I need is a new style sheet, and new images that go with the theme I have, lifestyle. I could also use some accent images, as well.
Please feel free to be over the top in the design, these are comic books, after all.
More info from a question:
Basically, I think a wordpress theme has two components. The way it works, and the way it looks.
I love the way it works, I need to separate "Column" postings from "Review" postings. Reviews come in at the rate of about 20 per week, and Columns about 3-5 per week. So I don't want them mixed up.
I would like something fairly splashy, with a good genre feel. I want to keep the structure/coding of how the wordpress theme works, but I want new colors, new images, etc.
