This is my first attempt at WordPress template development. However, unfortunately I'm a CSS novice.
I'm becoming accustomed to creating a child theme and I've got down the basics of customizing the layout. But, I wanted some advice from some of the coding experts on here!
Essentially, I want to model my website off of this.
These are the specifics
I want the page to be centered similar to this page, with rounded edges. And, a separate background image.
Also, I would like a flash header banner of similar size and look to be positioned like this.
Finally, I would like a smaller flash slide show positioned similarly to the website I linked.
Now, I know this may seem like a lot for someone of my skill-set, but I'm willing to learn.
As for the flash images, I can make those. My concern is the actual CSS related design/layout issues.
Can anybody give me some specific CSS,links, Tools(Fireworks,Dreamweaver?), or advice of how to accomplish these goals? It would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. Is this all reasonably possible with the thematic framework?
