    Hey guys, So my brother just got us a potential deal with a top notch person who is going to pay big bucks for a website and ranking. But the thing is that I am not sure if I can use the normal WordPress to do it.

    Will this website work for top traffic if I, get a nice hosting with a lot of bandwidth?
    And buy a nice theme from woothemes or so for the entertainment site?

    By the way I have no programming knowledge.

    it depends what kind of website you are talking about. Entertainment, can you give us the name of specific niche?

    Youtube is also a Entertainment Website as well as social.

    If you have no programming skills than be a middle man and hire someone to create it and pay him.

    You can learn PHP over the course of a weekend. Just go to CodeAcademy. Then start reading the codex.wordpress.com/theme_development page. It's really not that difficult.

    I really doubt someone can learn php in a week and develop a complete functioning website from scratch, unless his parents thought him basic programming and advance maths from age 5.

    award site, well you need to discuss it with someone the technicalities and functions, if it is possible in wordpress than go for it, or if it needs programming and designing skills you can hire someone.

    Wordpress will handle a fuckload of traffic without issues. In fact, wordpress.com runs on wordpress obviously and it's probably one of the highest traffic sites in the world. So you can use that.

    If you need customization, you can hire pros right here on this forum.

    You took that too far. It's not hard to develop a website with PHP and have it communicate with a database. It's not hard to learn it either, so what I said stands. If you read my post, I direct the OP to how PHP relates to Wordpress. Now, what does Wordpress come with? Already built themes. So one could learn the basic fundamentals of PHP, the basic functions & syntax, and apply the knowledge to the best of one's ability. Basic programming is just that, basic.

    I don't understand something. Why would you take on a job with a "well known person" when you don't know what you're doing? It's not fair to the customer. If I paid big bucks for a site, I would not accept themes, templates, Wordpress, etc. I would expect what I do for myself, which is: start with a blank page and create, hand code everything, make my own graphics and themes, optimize all graphics and every part of every page, strategic word placement for optimal seo, and much more.

    Absolutely well said, It's stupid when someone says you can learn a programming language in 7days, or 30days.. It's just not true! Not even the easiest one! You need practice, practice and practice. Programming is like learning to be a doctor, it's not the same as you learn it in the books, reality can bring more complex situations, and the more you have flexibility the more the chance to do something wrong...


    P.S, if you are interested, you can PM me about the whole project, and I will give you my opinion over that, or I can do the complete website for him, you will get your cut too as a middle man :)

    Best luck!

    I figured things do not have to be that complicated. If word Press can handle such things, then I would just go ahead and do it. But if I can't do it, then I will just be the middle man.

    Things are complicated when you are creating and optimizing a website. Too many people claim to be experts in both fields, when in actuality they are not. The customer ends up paying many people to do things right, falling for everyone who claims to be an expert in both fields. The customer loses a lot of money. It's wrong to take on a job when the person doesn't know what they are doing. Just my two cents. People aren't going to listen. They get dollar signs in their eyes and don't care what the customer ends up with.

    It is OK to do a bit of blagging/bullshit to get the client but for this to work, you need to know what you are doing.

    If you don't know what you are doing, then you fail the client and everybody loses.

    If the bucks are really big, then the most important thing is to deliver so that you get paid in full, no?

    In that case, get quotes & brief specs from decent design agencies & negotiate hard.

    I love how it's "stupid" when you took it just as literal as the other guy. What the OP needs is a basic understanding of how php interacts within Wordpress. You think it's like becoming a doctor? I can only imagine how long it took you to make profit in this industry. Oh wait, before you answer, I assume it was "my first month!". Nice way to plug your services though. String functions and learning the syntax is the BASIC level of php. The bottom rung. But it will help. Jesus, you people sometimes.

    The only thing he surely needs to "know" is where to get it. He DOES NOT need to know how to do it.

    OP, next time its better if you already have a contact tho. A trusted contact ready to start your work BEFORE you actualy get deals!

    Nah, probably not....

    html looks so easy I think I can learn it in 2 days.

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    <html>

    <head>BHW rocks</head>

    <title>Blackhatworld</title>

    <body>Some cool text here</body>

    </html>

    See, I learned it in 2 minutes :D

    How is he going to know where to get it when he doesn't know what he's looking for? Everyone and their mother claims to be an seo expert. Getting "theseodude" flashbacks now. It will be very easy for him to hire the wrong person for the job because he doesn't understand what this entails.
