How to achieve this look with Atahualpa?

I should preface this by saying that if I decide to use Atahualpa for my site, I will definitely donate, because I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions. I'm not a developer, and I've only been using Wordpress for a few days so bear with me.

Can anyone briefly tell me what would be involved in getting the out-of-the-box Atahualpa theme to look like this site, which apparently uses Atahualpa? Is this feasible for a rank noob like myself? Will I have to learn HTML in order to accomplish a comparable site?

So far I've managed to

Thanks in advance.

That site is a good example of how a "not too complex" site can look real nice. All there is on that site is a logo at the top - %logo, a menu bar - %pages, and a singular post on each page.

The rest is just CSS Styling. Start with the rounded style (see instructions for importing a style in ATO>Export>Import settings) then tweak the CSS for the desired colors, logo placement, etc. Some of the settings may be just setting a particular theme options and some you may have to add CSS to ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts.

^ Thanks. My thoughts, exactly. I'll be using my site for a b&m business, not as a blog, and I love how the site I linked to above is clean, simple and uncluttered without looking bare and incomplete, while providing all the information a customer would need.

I just barely understand what your second paragraph means, but I will spend today trying to figure it out. Thanks again.

If there is something you don't understand just ask away. It helps if you only cover one question in a post and a link to the site is sometimes necessary.

We are here to help where we can.
