Hello my fellow authors,

I’m an AudioJungle music author. I’m looking to create a site to display my music that has E-Commerce capability built in (PayPal) also. There are so many themes here, I just thought I’d go to the source for direction.

Should this be a Wordpress site? Joomla? Something else?

I’m a rookie to say the least, so something that doesn’t require a lot of code writing know-how would be best suited for me. Also, are you guys/girls available to help setup the site? I have a hosting account, but if this works out to be a WP site, I have zero experience setting up WP themes.

Any help and suggestions are truly appreciated.

MBS

WordPress and EAD would be suited to your needs. You can find 3 EAD themes here or there are some on the EAD site.

You could even go full hog and get a full custom branded site but this is going to cost in the region of $3-10k depending on who does it.

Serenity looks great. When you say I could get a branded site, does that mean that a theme like Serenity can’t be changed using my logos, images, etc.?

Also, is it setup to play a sound file? Is that a separate plugin?

Branded = custom design

Yeah you would need to download a music player plugin from wordpress.org or codecanyone

Makes sense. Thank you for all the help. Stumbles across this from your links http://themeforest.net/item/marketify-marketplace-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/6570786

Seems as if it could work also. Am I wrong?

OK, seems as if I need to familiarize myself with WP very quickly. Am I correct in thinking there are two parts to this equation?

1. Buy the theme
2. Buy EDD plugin. (cheap….$2.99)

EDD is free to buy, you might need to buy additional plugins depending on your needs but you can get started for $0.

Great! Are you available to assist in setup of a WP theme? What are your rates? You can email me directly on my profile if you prefer to have that conversation privately.
