Hi everyone,

I would be very grateful for some advice. I’m starting a new business but I cannot afford a professional programmer. I’m quite experienced at building HTML pages with CSS from scratch since I’ve often done this for myself. However, I don’t have any experience or knowledge in adapting templates, coding php, javascript or anything else. I’d like to use this template:


Can I do this myself and where do I get the info how to dp this? Do I have to order anything else with the themeforest template, like an additional CMS?

Also, where can I get videos that relate to architecture and design?

Thanks a lot for any help.

Forgot to mention, I also need the shop.

Do I need to purchase this as well or anything else? http://codecanyon.net/item/php-responsive-online-store-with-paypal-cart/7022811?WT.ac=category_item&WT.seg_1=category_item&WT.z_author=whitespace

Thanks a lot!

Hi there why don’t you just buy a wordpress theme with the shop. There are many great themes and you will use the wordpress backend so you do not have to do any code editing.

Hi thanks for the advice. I’ll look into it. Still, the other theme seems more sophisticated. Do you think I can do it with my knowledge and where can I find info on that? Thanks a lot.

I am confused the link you referenced: http://themeforest.net/item/black-label-fullscreen-video-image-background/336949 is a WordPress theme i.e. free CMS and it also has a shop built into the theme?

Yes, it’s a wordpress theme. Thanks for the replies. I still find it a bit complicated to set it all up, not sure whether I should do it myself or not.
