I am building a Kids Site related to kids acivities, indoor games, outdoor games, fun etc. I dont know how to choose a wordpress theme. I searched thousands of wordpress themes but as I dont know much basics its hard for me to decide what to choose.
Questions I have;
I want three column site like http://family.go.com/entertainment/article-mm-77587-10-fun-outdoor-games-for-kids-t/ or http://fun.familyeducation.com/play/outdoor-activities/33394.html and want three coloumns as
a) Left bar will have categories, popular articles, tag cloud etc + box with adsense ads.
b) Middle one will have my articles + adsense links at the bottom plus link to next article in that category.
c) third one should be wide ( like in above links) and will have box with adsense ads and affiliate ads.
This is basic setup what is in my mind. It can change little bit based on feedback and circumstances. Now, to achieve this,
- Do I need adsense ready theme?
- Can I add any plugins like TAG CLOUD etc to my lef side bar?
- Can I insert adsense/affiliate ads anywhere in the blog or need to do something to make it ad ready?
I have selected few themes based on what is available but all say fixed width column :( Can I achieve all the above if I use following theme?
I dont really like them as there are not too many kids related themes available.
But anyway please guide what should I look intoa theme to achieve above mentioned requirements?
PS: Before moving to wordpress themes, I was trying to use #5 Template in the first row at this link (neoneon) http://www.bravenet.com/webtools/template/ or partially visible at http://misssmartypantssite.com/ ( not my site, I googled it). But I am told that It wont work with wordpress.
