I am building a typical creative-agency website (with pages like "Work", "Portfolio", "Clients" etc...).
It will also contain a blog section, powered by WordPress. I will have to skin the WP blog to look like the whole site, so I thought that, instead of building my custom PHP code to power the rest of the site, I could use WP for everything.
But that means adapting WP to power a very different home page than WP's one. The rest of the sections will probably be OK (topics like "Clients", "Portfolio" etc... that could be like WP Pages). But the home page will be my biggest difficulty, as I must make a custom setting layout be fed from WP data.
I have no experience customizing WP beyond adding basic stuff to headers, footers and side bars.
Is this even worth it? Should I try to make WP power such a site in its entirety, or will I just end up wasting more time?
Can you please direct me to a good starting point.
Thanks a lot
