How to Use Microsoft Expression With WordPress

1. Set up an account with WordPress or log in to your existing account. Install WordPress onto your computer by clicking 'Download' and following the instructions on your screen. Ensure you know where the WordPress files will be stored on your hard drive so you can locate the folder later.
2. Create four different pages called 'Home,' 'About,' 'Contact' and 'Blog' using the WordPress dashboard. You can do this by clicking on 'Pages,' then 'Add New.' On the 'Blog' page, you also will need to create five different posts and two different post categories. Create new posts by clicking on 'New Post' in the dashboard and assign each post a category by clicking on the ' ' sign under 'New Categories' when writing a new post.

3. Choose a customizable theme for your WordPress blog using the themes on the site. Under 'Appearance' on the dashboard, click 'Themes' and pick the design you want from the list. You will be able to tweak this theme using Microsoft Expression, but it should be close to the kind of design you envision for your blog.
4. Open Microsoft Expression and create a new blog using the software. The site your building should be saved in the root folder of the WordPress installation files. Remove any existing CSS code on the Expression page so that it is blank. Then, open your existing Wordpress blog in a normal Web browser and display the source code. In Firefox, you can do this by pressing 'Ctrl U' and in IE8, go to 'Page,' then 'View Source.' Copy the source code by highlighting it all and pressing 'Ctrl' plus 'C' (or 'Command' plus 'C' on a Mac).
5. Paste the source code from the Web page into the new HTML file in Expression. Save the file in the root folder of the WordPress installation files, calling it 'test' or a similar name. Within the first lines of the code, find the CSS call. This is the part of the code that refers to the CSS file currently on the Wordpress server. The code will contain directions to the WordPress server where the theme code is stored. Delete the website address and change the code so that the file destination is the theme file on your hard drive, such as href='wp-content/themes/[name of you chosen theme].' Changing the source of the theme code to the theme file on your hard drive means any changes you make to the code using Microsoft Expression will show up on your Wordpress website.
6. Save the page once you have changed the CSS call and change the view in Microsoft Expression to split view so you can see both the site and the code. You can now use the Microsoft Expression tools to modify the appearance of your site and check changes you have made using the test HTML page in the root folder.

4. Search for the 'options' table in your database. The options table should now be appended with your new prefix. Open this table and click 'Edit' next to 'wp_user_roles.' Change the 'wp' in this entry to your new prefix. Do the same thing with the usermeta field.

How to Create a Magazine Theme for WordPress

1. Think out what you want to put on your site. If your concept of a magazine style focuses on photo display, look for themes that allow posting of large images against dramatic backgrounds. If you want a more newsy approach, select themes with two or three columns, even four, that showcase multiple categories. A simple background that doesn’t get in the way of the news works best.
2. Use themes with dark backgrounds to make images standout in photo-style magazine layouts. It doesn’t have to be black. Using a deep blue or a subdued red with a main column of white for content and images works well. Avoid bright colors for backgrounds. Some themes let photos bleed off the light or white main column into dark frames, effective for creating a stark, minimalist theme. Avoid graphic elements with frills. You want the design kept simple to let the photos provide the graphic impact. Keep text to a minimum, and leave plenty of space around the photos, or white space as it’s called in print. One main column and a side bar for links are all you need.

3. Select themes with white or light backgrounds where text will appear when creating a news-style magazine theme. Reverse text – light text on dark backgrounds – is harder to read for anything but short items such as a quote box. No matter what you’re writing or collecting news items on, you want highlights from several categories on the theme’s home page, requiring several columns. The highlights for categories should allow you to place small photos for stories mentioned. On pages that hold the complete story, the theme should allow placement of larger photos.
4. Customize the themes as needed to fit your plan. Select themes with a custom header image if you want your banner to contain a logo or graphic image that brands your online magazine. Photo-style magazines, however, can do well with just a name and no image that conflicts with the content photos. Choose a theme that’s very flexible, letting you adjust as you go along. You may start out with a two-column news-style theme, but later find that switching to three columns better fits what you need to do.
