I'M A NEWBY - SOMEBODY PLEEEEEEASE HELP ME

  1. Hello - I am new to word press and I am SO lost. Basically I want to design a custom website. I was familiar with another program called SiteSpinner which was basically a simple Drag and Drop format. It was easy and I was able to design a decent website. But I have no clue how wordpress functions. In SiteSpinner, I would simply open up the program and begin laying out my site (simple as using PowerPoint). How do I do that here? How do I customize my website homepage with pictures and text? I don't even see where the is a program for that - it just takes me to my dashboard and I don't know which direction to go in from there.

    I've read the literature and am still just lost. Can ANYONE please help. Heck, I'd even PAY for someone for help over the phone.

    Thanks In Advance,
    Chris

  2. Basically I want to design a custom website.

    Well you cannot do that here at wordpress.com. I suggest you read this entry carefully and then head over to http://wordpress.ORG
    http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Also note that in cyberspace typing in all capital lettering is equivalent to shouting into someones face. I don't recommend it as it can mean that those who answer questions choose to ignore you.

  3. Go over to wordpress.org if you want to make a "custom website," but http://www.wordpress.com is cool too! You can make a pretty decent website, but without all the boring stuff. ;)
