My website is a site for my photography to be displayed and purchased. It will be geared toward the action sport crowd and outdoor enthusiast. Right now I am looking to build the website on either Wordpress or Wix.
There are a few problems with each platform I have noticed so far. One problem is Wix is far less customizable than Wordpress. Another is Wordpress is going to be a little bit more complicated to add a video intro of some sort. The solution I found for adding the flash video is a HTML code for adding a flash intro video into Wordpress.
I think I am going to going to build the website in Wordpress because it is more customizable and gives me more freedom to make the site a little more unique than other photo websites.
I also have ran into problems where I try to move a menu or slideshow in the CSS stylesheet and it screws up the entire page, so I have learned to save my stylesheet template in a text edit file, not to loose all the changes I have made.
Today 4/2 I worked on adding a shopping cart. The problem I ran into is figuring out how to enlarge the thumbnail picture to full screen. I am using the Ready!Ecommerace shopping cart plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ready-ecommerce/. I like it so far and if I figure out how to enlarge the thumbnail I will continue with this option otherwise I will go with a different one. Otherwise the plugin is pretty custimizable, I just need to explore more with it and figure out the options better.
