Re: About wordpress

Interesting that you consider wordpress to be a computer language ... isn't it a blogging platform ? I know that there is a lot of demand for add-ons in Wordpress, which I consider is rather "dangerous" in terms of web strategy (if add-ons are not supported anymore, then you are left with a piece of software that cannot be maintained anymore, unless you recruit a dedicated programmer).
You can download wordpress on the wordpress site and try playing around with it (it is very intuitive, and so are the php templates; at least they were when I became familiar with wordpress back then in 2003/2004. I guess the software have improved tremendously since then).

Re: About wordpress

Apart from downloading the Wordpress, you need a web space or local server to run it. Its better to install it on local server like WAMP for windows if want to learn more about WP. There are many wp themes/templates and plugins are available on internet. First get the ideas, usages, customization in admin panels. Then you can go for the theme customization, theme development, plugin development along with the code of wp structure.

Well yes varindia, but maybe for a wordpress newbie it's safer to buy some shared hosting to begin with. Some allow you to install Wordpress in one click to begin with. After he gets familiar with Wordpress functionalities, and once his platform grows large enough, he can buy some dedicated hosting (or VPS hosting) to accomodate such growth ...
