    Hey,

    I was wondering if you are interested in porting a theme I made into WordPress. Here’s the PNG Screenshot.

    Thanks!

    Hey,

    Ok, I’m guessing since you didn’t andwer that it’s a no. Well, here is another theme I made;

    Zoom in for a real-size feel.

    @Aguair: Sorry for not responding quickly enough. These PSD designs take me a long time to code so I can’t really guarantee anything. Already coded XHTML/CSS designs are greatly preferred. Hope you understand.

  • Aguair

    I understand. Do you know anywhere I can get something coded? Or even a program that might make it easier to code something?

  • Leland

    @Aguair: I usually use Photoshop to slice and a text editor to code. I’m not sure of anything that will make this easier but it’s usually best to do it by hand.

  • Aguair

    I’m not the best on the ‘Slice’ bit – Meaning I have no idea what it means. To be honest – I’m a F- student when it comes to coding (CSS – I’m OK at).

    I thought Dreamweaver did that kind of stuff.

    Otherwise, do you know a coder – Preferably free. Yeah – I’m suckish.

  • Leland

    Dreamweaver can probably do it too, I’ve never used it though. I don’t know any free coders. Sorry.

    Hey,

    Off-topic – Can you… help me, Moving my WordPress blog (Currently at http://localhost/wordpress) to another domain? The WordPress.Org tutorial only confused me more.

    Thanks.

  • Leland

    @Aguair: You’ll need to backup the WP database and files and upload them to your web host. You might need to make a couple changes in the database (chainging from localhost/wordpresss as the URL). You could also try WordPress export function and transfer the theme and other plugins you’re using to a fresh installation.
