Hi /gd/, good morning.
Can anyone enlighten me about HTML, please?
I was given the task to modify my current job website, which was made on Wordpress. I found a HTML theme that I'm gonna edit with our info but we also have an online store and blog. I'm aware that we need and admin panel, so we can easily add products to the shop, posts to the blog, content to the site etc.
I never really got in touch with HTML, and I have this doubt: if I buy the theme and an admin panel theme, how is the link between them made?
Would it be easier if I just bought their Wordpress theme instead of HTML? It is more expensive but if it's gonna save me from some headache I think it's better.
my dude wordpress is set up so you just buy a theme and drop it into the CMS (which is what I assume you mean by admin panel)
as for the blog, wordpress is blogging software, and really I'd imagine you could just get shopify to work for your store.
yes, it's CMS!
we already have the shop and blog set up, it's just that our current theme is pure shit, I advised them to make a new website from scratch, but for now we're just buying a new theme
do you know if it's possible to edit the theme before publishing it? If I have to upload it and remove the old site white I live edit it it's gonna be a problem...
Wordpress allows you to upload a new theme and preview it with your current site's content without pushing it live. In that same preview you can edit the theme. Take into account that not all themes allow you edit every aspect of it (unless you make changes through a child css theme).
