I hope i’m not in any violation asking for help here. I want to purchase a bunch of different themed wordpress templates for my website. The problem I am having is that my website is in codeigniter and has a ton of functionality that needs to be translated into the wordpress theme. We have already gotten the website to run within wordpress but we can’t find a template to use without doing some major modifications and if we do that it just doesn’t look right. I see so many current templates that look wonderful but we do not have the design knowledge or tools to fully customize them for my needs. Is there a good solution for this that will allow me to purchase the themes from Envato that are setup for my needs?
Thanks for the help.
I also need banner adds and some other stuff and would love some recommendations.
Firstly I would suggest you look at HTML templates rather than Wordpress as a converting from Wordpress to Codeigniter just sounds dangerous. A lot of WP themes you can also find in HTML form.
But to answer your question, Envato doesn’t provide anything to help you with this except for mighty developers I suggest contacting one of the Authors directly and asking them for the service of integrating it with Codeigniter. You can contact them directly on their profile page.
Hope this helps.
Thanks DPB ,
I think my noob speak did not explain why we wanted to use WP. We are creating strategic partners and need to be able to quickly deploy websites that allow customization by the end user. We feel that WP best solves both the design and content editing issues. Is there a way to edit the content of a HTML site like you can in WP? The solution we have now just isn’t as good but maybe there is something better.
We already have WP running our Codeigniter website on a test server but need to find someone that can customize the themes to fit our needs. Our service is unique and we are unable to find a WP theme that is perfect for what we need and we don’t have the design talents to make them look as good as we want them to look.
Your solution of contacting the Authors directly probably still applies however and I’m glad we have the ability to do that. I will look for the profile page and reach out to some of them.
Thanks for your help and please feel free to recommend anything else you think could make our solution more effective.
Do you mean your codeigniter site will allow the end user to set up a wordpress website with desired look and feel and after the setup they can update their site from their wordpress back end???
Anyhows, hit me with an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want any customization tasks as I’ve previously worked on CodeIgniter too and been developing custom theme for WordPress.
So something like WPMU , or is that missing the point? Why don’t you create a basic CMS within your CodeIgniter app that simply covers the functionality that you really need from Wordpress? Potentially that would be a lot more secure as well, depending on how you execute it.
I totally agree with you about the number of cool Wordpress themes though, a couple of times I’ve ended up buying a Wordpress theme, firing up WP then cutting the generated HTML out and stripping all the cruft that wordpress inserts out of it. Currently most of the best themes don’t have HTML versions, and who could blame the authors when they get paid so much less for them?
