    Hey there,

    I have a client site at: http://www.MenifeeBodyShop.com

    This site is running on a WordPress blog platform with a static home page and other static pages.

    The blog was an after thought for him and it only has one post in it.

    I put him up a mock up from purchasing Clean Cut HTML version here:

    http://www.getfreedom.com/tsmockup/

    . . . and he loves it so I bought the Clean Cut WordPress version.

    1st unlike the HTML version that has a “files” folder with the Main Page Slider images in it – like content_pic1.jpg etc.

    . . . I don’t find a “files” folder in the WordPress version or anything in the documentation about where to store those 910px * 390px image files for the slider.

    I don’t want them to point to a blog post but be clickable to pages not posts. I think I can manage that from the documentation.

    Since the Theme that is currently running on that blog is very close in structure to the old default kubrick theme that came with the pre 3.0 WordPress I was hoping to be able to upload the Clean Cut Theme and set it up accordingly.

    Am I just asking for trouble doing it ^^ that way ^^ and if so should I just start over again from scratch? Obviously not what I want to do but I opened my big mouth and showed my client Clean Cut to begin with.

    I’m lovin the looks of it, just need those few questions answered and I’ll get into it.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    The Media Library (within WordPress Admin) is the “correct” way to upload images.

    You need to be running WordPress 3.0 or higher for CleanCut to work properly, use the Dummy Content installer on the options page to get started and see how everything goes together.

    If you’ve only got one post on the existing WP install, I’d suggest starting over, particularly as the content installer will take care of the hard work for you.

    Yep it is on WP 3.0 but though there is only one post there is 20 some static pages of content.

    Maybe it would be better if I put it up on another server in it’s own directory, set it up from scratch and see how it goes . . . Ya think?

    Hi!

    I’d set this up from scratch in your position, it simply a case of copy / paste to transfer over the pages from the existing site.

    Regards,

    James
