|5) Is wordpress really secure? I hear all these horror stories of people being hacked through their wordpress sites. |
Always use the most recent versions of WP, your theme and plugins! Also to be on the safe side you can disable comments so there are less possibilities were someone could insert code

yes to all of the above - its down to finding the theme and plugins and I'm pretty sure some of the magazine themes will do just what your after - you can also allow guest article writers as that need pre-approved before going live
Your just have to spend a few days hunting for themes .....try checking out thesis as thats very customizable

Ok, there is a FREE theme I like but it looks like it hasn't been updated in about a year or two. Does that mean it is more open to a security exploit?
Thanks in advance.

I'm no WP geek ...but the security issues are normally down to WP not the theme.....least I think

Themes are an integral part of WP and while they do rely on the functions and building blocks provided by WP they can cause security issues on their own because they are allowed to use their own code to create additional functionality.
