Recently dipped by toes into the wordpress blogging website world. The blog/website that myself and co-authors would like to create is a multi-page website like we have done so far. Categorize the pages by parent themes; such as lifestyle, entertainment, special interest... and sub themes; such as food, travel, pets etc. However, the issue that we are encountering is the ability to post to an individual category/page theme. We wouldn't mind it also being on the front page, but the ability to have individual/custom post pages is key to having our idea work.
I am part of wordpress.com and not org, we are not self hosted. But, the lack of customization kinda sucks. Anyone know of a way to customize a theme further, like I want to add in a photo slider, or a forum etc? I am sure it is not possible, but thought to ask.
Thanks so much and looking forward to some helpful suggestions.
The blog I need help with is urbanenyc.com.
