Hi, this is my first post and I am creating my first page/blog.
I was asked to create a blog for my colleges MBA faculty. They had originally had someone create one on wordpress.com but received grief from the university marketing because it didn't work with the branding of the university. They asked me to make it look like http://blogs.bethel.edu/just-jay/
(the President's blog).
This is great, and with wordpress.com I am able to get "close" ... but really not the same at all.
I want to be able to use the top part of the page I linked. (Ideally I would use the whole page and change the content) Is that possible? I have never written code and have been studying up on it.
If someone knows this stuff like the back of their hand I would appreciate some help. If you could look at the source of that link and tell me if it would be possible to (easily) copy, paste, and change the content then maybe it is worth paying to customize a wordpress.
My understanding is that they took a wordpress blog and included it into their website and format (which you can do)... and I am trying to take their website format and insert it into a wordpress blog/page (And this isn't possible ?? I'm thinking.. since it is not all php.)
Any opinion? Sorry for the book. I am thinking I can get it close enough but if they want it exact they need someone who can write code and still may not be able to do it on wordpress. (Im not sure why they don't go through the colleges marketing people that work on the actual site. I'm assuming wordpress is easier for individual faculty to upload their blogs to than if they had a page on the colleges site... maybe I am completely wrong about that though).
If it is possible to copy and paste the css style and the code/html (and change it to php) from the top two navigation headers and the bottom footer from http://blogs.bethel.edu/just-jay/ then I could probably figure it out.
Thank for any expert help and/or opinions.
The blog I need help with is chrisschmidtontheweb.wordpress.com.
