My name is John and I am just getting started with wordpress. I have a site for my business at www.VantagePrep.com
. It's rubbish.
I am going to launch a new wordpress website and have been scouring through tons of themes, both free and paid.
I have a few questions for you guys.
1. Where is the best place to scour for good themes? I have done most of my scouring from here: http://www.premiumwp.com/best-premium-wordpress-themes-collection/?gclid=CO3VkPXCnaACFSZHagodURKdmw
2. Could any of you recommend a theme based on the capabilities I need:
-drag and drop widgets (if possible)
-an information inquiry form (for a contact us page) widget
-video and audio posting capability
-a bright, slick design
-easy access to social media sites on the homepage
-a database, log in function to access exclusive content
-paypal capabilities to purchase products (tutoring programs) directly from the site
-capability to do a slideshow of pictures (either flash or a photobucket thing) on the home page
-interactive calendars where customers can schedule an appointment online
-a drop down menu where customers can filter by subject, pick a subject, and then it will list the available tutors for that subject (sounds complicated, but it is what they are doing here: http://www.leopoldbloom.com/Services/BookBySubject.aspx
Any recommendations or advice would be HUGE. I'm totally clueless here.
Thanks a ton,
