Need general startup advice

Never did much with Websites before, other than a few simple static sites. I'm trying to build a portal site of general Celtic interest content plus some personal blogs. I need a good highspeed intro to WordPress in general, and Atahualpa in particular.

I need explanation of all the parts of a site and what they are used for, then a planning list. Web searches haven't found what I need yet. I program in VB.Net and C#.Net, but not php, though I can learn quickly.

Any recommendations?

Current site:
http://tirnanog.com/WordPress/
The old static site is at:
http://tirnanog.com/

thanks,
RickH

Wow... I don't know where to start. Actually I think your best bet is to first look through the Atahualpa theme options. That will give you a pretty good idea of what can be done with the theme.

WordPress.org has all sorts of info on WordPress in general and a search through the plugins will give you an idea of what can be done with a WordPress site.

W3Schools.com can help you with CSS which is really important to get a handle on over php. I sometimes use php code snippets but that is about it for me and php.

Then it is a matter of "playing" around. I have a site that is just used for testing plugins etc. that I don't care if it gets blown up and I recommend having a test site especially if you are learning.

Then there is this forum for asking questions as needed.

Ok, thanks, I'm reading through some of the WordPress.org docs, which is helping me understand the basics.
