WordPress blog to function as CMS

 8:52 pm on Mar 9, 2009 (gmt 0)

I need a WordPress blog, to function as CMS.

The blog should have widgets and plugins ready to use, such as photo gallery, video, newsletter box, and etc.

The layout should be in top banner with top navigation and 3 columns for content - left, middle and right. The middle portion is where the content will go.

On the left i want to put links. However i want this links to change depending on where you click on the top. In other words if you click on home, you will see A, B and C links on the left, if you click on Services, you will see D, E, and F links on the left and etc.

On the right side i want to have a login box , banner ads, and adsense,

Please, let me know where can i find a theme to have all these features?

I don't believe there will be such a theme per se, because functionality like a photogallery (which you can get with plugins like WPG2 or NextGen) is going to be independent of any given theme.

So you simply need to find a good, flexible "cms" or "magazine" oriented theme for WP, and then add in the plugins you need.

Depending on what kind of AdSense integration you want, you can either use an add-on to insert ads into posts, or simply use a text widget to put the add code in a sidebar.

As ergophobe said, those criteria are a little specific. Get a flexible theme and use plugins and modify the theme, this will take some coding knowledge of CSS and PHP.

The theme I use for WP is called Atahualpa, and it is the most flexible, customizable, and user friendly theme I've come across (the reason I use it).

If someone has one that bests it I would love to know it, thanks.

There are some themes for "magazine" type sites that function more as a CMS but a blog can also be incorporated.

I don't believe you'll find this either but have you sifted through the themes avail through the WordPress site?

google for woo themes. They got a nice theme with a plugin for flickr and it works like a charm for my needs. Not sure it will meet your requirements or not.
