I don't know much about wordpress. I tied myself in to a simpler CMS some years ago and have mainly used that. I am thinking it's time to go with the mainstream and am embarking on a paid wordpress project with a combination of a lot of googling, some speed-reading of the codex pages and a bit of bluffing.
Am I going to be alright? a positive learning experience? Or crash and burn, disgrace and dishonour? I am thinking I might cobble together a simple minimal theme with no features and no posts, just pages and see how it goes, but then I am also wondering if there is any point. A lot of 'web designers' just tinker with existing themes these days.
