I'm really out of touch with WP, being used to building CMSes myself. Just too much info at once to get where I want to be. I have a theme installed, but am struggling to get the images on the homepage. Can't remember the name now, will look it up. Probably need to do some reading to get the basics first.

The sections needed will be for (cooking) recipes, book lists (maybe) and categorized information on animals and minerals for example.


I am new to WP (trying to help my partner), and looking for an easy to use theme that kind of looks like what I have at pritaeas.net. Basically I want the homepage to feature images (text optional) pointing to a section on the website. I have been searching but there is so much out there, I have no idea where to start or what keywords to use when searching.


are the experts who can do this rare?

Any decent software engineer should be able to build this. I mentioned a data analist, because they have a clearer understanding of how to generate the results you need, using the bulk of news available each day.

It would be great if you could provide the name of companies or individuals that provide this service

I doubt we are in the same region, but any software house or freelance software engineer could build this if you have clear specifications.


Basically you are building Google Alerts, but for more sources and with more restrictions. You'll need to integrate with news sources, or search engine APIs to extract the information you'd want to see. You need to build a service type application that runs daily and intelligently.

Is this technically feasible to do?


who is the type of person that can do it?

IMO you'll need a software engineer and a data analist.

Re: in Databases

You can get the list of customers to collect with something like this:

SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE ActivationDate = CURDATE()

If you add a new column, say NewDateToCollect, then you can just add that to the query:

SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE ActivationDate = CURDATE() OR NewDateToCollect = CURDATE()
