i am new to wordpress, i havent used any other CMS also. but i am a good php programmer. i used to develop websites without any CMS and i create myself the Admin module for uploading contents. now i would like to switch to a CMS as it is more standared. but i didnt find anywhere a good tutorial which helps me to get started. i want to work as easy or even more than i was working before. is wordpress flexible to make what ever i want, as i have done without CMS?.where should i start?
i have installed wordpress well and created sample pages. but thats not i want.
normally without a cms what i do is i will create the html with my photoshop layout and then write phpcode to fill the sections. how is the same thing possible in wordpress.
how can i create a home page and subpages?
where can i write php code?
please help i need to start a new website asap. i prefer doing that in wordpress but i got stuck.
Also, i want to know is it possible to move, a website which was built without any CMS and is already having more thant 1500 content and page rank 3, to wordpress without loosing the layout (the look) and the content?
