I recently brought a webserver and i wanted to create webfolio of my work. I was going to use a standard html page, but i wanted to upload images regularly and i thought a wordpress blog with a photogallery plugin would be easier. I could then do a blog/wip section to show my current work in progress. However i dont want a sidebar down the side, so i downloaded a theme and edited it. Its pretty much entirely different but it had this dynamic sidebar under the header, i dont want it. I just want a simple bar which has 4 links. Blog, About Me, Portfolio, Contact Me. I dont want comments on the About me portfolio and contact me (just a plain non blog page) and blog to be a standard blog.
Heres how the site looks now http://mythreed.com/Images/1.jpg
and i want it to look like this http://mythreed.com/Images/2.jpg
(i would like the sidebar to be an image gradient) and for the links to be plain links, no hover images etc.
