I am an amateur web designer migrating my current site from wordpress.com (my current site can be found at www.catalystcooks.com) to wordpress.org (my development site can be found at http://220.127.116.11/~catalyu8/).
I have been playing with Atahualpa for a week, to see if I can achieve my desired look and feel. This forum has been a great resource as I make a decision about what my solution will be (and donate/buy accordingly).
I have also learned how to use Firebug and in addition to getting solutions from this forum, I am using several websites for inspiration (such as http://www.eyebridge.com.au/).
If you compare my development site's CSS to the inspiration site's CSS, my CSS is much more complicated which I know will impact SEO (not to mention how easy it is for me to manage future changes!)
What do any of you recommend ??? Should I keep going in Atahualpa? Try out Themeframe? Learn CSS from scratch and hard code my website myself?
