    Always used Xsite to make my sites , so I thought Id give wordpress a go. Its a strange thing to get your head around trying understand a new platform. I started a blog based on personal interest for my best mate. So monetizing not a big priority, just a practice site ATM. Would like some constructive input on this. payed for a monster template thats hard as hell to modify (had to learn flash)
    Code:
    www.phuketplay.com
    all them Seo tag plugins make it look tacky Not that impressed with wordpress, its pretty limited.
    Site only at ground level , looking for direction before adding craploads of content ,and advice on whats wrong with it so far .

    Thanks

    Looks like a good start. The flash intro seems to take a long time to load. I like wordpress because it seems simple to use. I've tried a few other content management systems, but I agree it's tough to start learning a new system after you've used another for a long time. Good Luck!

    I swear by wordpress because of the ease of use, even though it may be somewhat limiting. Nice start.

    Just a quick tip, never post your potential money website's on BHW... you just give people the idea to outrank you -> you lose
