    I am trying to get a new site up and running, and cant for the life of me find a good designer, my thoughts are to copy someone elses site, change graphics color and really just keep the functionality, and menu design.

    Its for wordpress so it would just be the template,


    Im not sure if this is even realistic, but im bothered by not being able to find a designer thats capable its really not that intricate of a site

    Best bet is to look in the source for any signs of what the theme's name is. Could be comments, or googling filenames.

    try this method out.

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/templates-themes/363008-get-any-wordpress-theme-you-want.html
    but instead of going to theme forest, go to the site that you wish to copy the template with, and try putting the wp-content/uploads/ on the URL. you might be in luck if if its a wordpress site. then download the theme as soon as you see it. :)

    Take a screen shot, paste that into Photoshop, clean it up and slice as necessary, "Save for Web and Devices -> Save -> HTML & Images"

    Then clean the code up. Bam, exact copy.

    If you yourself are not a designer, tough luck. Find a template.. Like they said, if it's WordPress, "wp-content/uploads" and if you know the name of the ZIP file, even if you're denied access to the folder you can usually still grab the template.

    Good way to do this is first just try the theme's name "http://themeforest.net/item/ammon-theme-for-wordpress/706240" and if that doesn't work, then see if they have any type of documentation for installing. That will usually have the file name in it, then just navigate:

    THEIRSITE.com/wp-uploads/content/FILENAME.zip and poof.

    Get winhttrack and then a cracked version of dreamweaver. You should be able to pull of an extremely good site.

    Find a template forum where they share downloads with each other. You'll find legit and nulled copies.

    HTTrack is the best way to rip a website.

    Try what he said.

    also try to find the name of the template using page source. If not....freelancers can help you copy the exact same template.
