    Happy New Year All!

    I have a question that I need your help with please.

    I have someone that is doing the design for my header, footer, and autoresponder for a brand new WordPress blog.

    Yesterday he asked me what size autoresponder I wanted. I explained that I'd like my autoresponder to be in the sidebar. He says fine, but he still needs a size.

    Here's my question that I'm trying to understand.

    Do I go and find a WordPress template with 3 columns and it makes NO difference what it looks like as long as the columns are there? Or should I be concerned with finding one that is Adsense and affiliate ready (if I can)?

    Then what's next? Do I get someone to upload it to HostGator? And then that same someone can tell me what the sidebar measures so that the autoresponder will fit correctly?

    And then someone can place the header, footer, and autoresponder into the WordPress template?

    I appreciate your help to UN-confuse me.

    Thanks,

    Vic

    First select the type of template you want and tell the designer to make sure the autoresponder box fits in the sidebar..

    I suggest you to go with 1 column as I assume you are doing some IM blog... perhaps 300x250 would be an better size :)

    You might want to first pick a theme and give it to the designer guy who is working on the header, footer and AR stuff.

    Thanks sidddd: No, it is not at all associated with Internet Marketing and I would very much like a 3-column blog.

    Thanks trigger_my_passion: I am trying to understand how the process goes.

    Thanks so much for the sites trigger_my_passion! I very much appreciate your effort and am certain that I'll find a great 3-column theme to give to my graphics person.
