I am a newbie to WordPress but know some html and a little bit of CSS. I gather that any changes to the HTML templates is pretty much out of the question, so just wanted to know what you can do by customizing the CSS?
I just wanted to use WordPress as my portfolio site (so would use mainly pages) - with some occasional posts thrown in for good measure.
Ideally, I would like something like this: http://www.jonathanpinnock.com/
But for that, do I need to bite the bullet and go over to wordpress.org and find a web host? Though I have just paid for the CSS upgrade - so would rather perservere with wordpress.com.
Anyway, any tips, hints would be much appreciated. Eveb if its just to say which template is the most malleable.
