    Hello, I am looking for a ways to build a site similar to
    Code:
    http://fireplacedesigninfo.com/
    I want to be able to add the title of the articles in the right column like the above site. I am good at wordpress and it would be perfect if I could build it in wordpress. I just can't find the right plugin for it. The above site is coded in html but this is really not an option for me. I also thought about building it in XsitePro and then move it to wordpress or something like that.
    Any ideas guys??

    It is quite minimalistic, you can easily recreate it from the html file. I haven't converted sites to wordpress, but if you can find a theme that is close enough it can be hacked up.

    Look at the html. It is one div and 3 tables, thats it.

    You can achieve this by using page (not post).
    Set one of the page as front page.
    Then, put pages list on side bar.
    Use this wordpress plugin to add .html extension on your pages.

    I prefer it to be build in wordpress because of its plugins and some other stuff that it has so building it in html is not really an option for me. Also I don't even know html coding and I don't have time to learn atm.

    Sounds good. I am gonna try it soon when my dns will be ready.
    Thanks
