So it looks like I'm going to stay with GPEASY, but I want to play with some themes, and I am not sure which path to take in starting my design approach.
Green theme, left sidebar, top sidebar (would love suckerfish menus dropping down one or two levels but will settle for single row)...header is logo to left, some standard text across, plus a search bar (either in header, menu, or sidebar). Two column design with sidebar to left and main text to right.
That's the basics, now time to complicate things. First, full width needs to be visible in 800x600 resolution, for accessibility issues (users who have that resolution to keep things nice and big). Second, I have almost identical design across entire site, which will have book reviews, movie reviews, etc. About 10 sub-areas of material in all. But, I would prefer if the book reviews had slightly different colourings in the main text area (i.e. boxes were red instead of green, etc.). Maybe blue for movie reviews.
So, I have three questions:
a. If I'm going to start slicing and dicing an existing theme, anyone have one to suggest that will be close to what I want above?
b. Do I need 10 themes or do I just add 10 sub-elements for say box colours in one theme?
c. Would it be better for me to run multi versions of the software installation, with each area (books, etc.) all being separate installations? Or is separate installs more for people running multiple sites rather than just one semi-complicated one.
Thansk for any advice in advance.
