So I'm building a portfolio for my video and graphic work I've done over the year and decided it'd also be a good time (per a lot of suggestions from you guys) to learn to customize WordPress.
Thing is I've never really dabbled in PHP so a lot of it is foreign to me.
What and where I think things should go is just not the case.
I've been tinkering with a basic "blank" style I found in WordPress themes.
I've got the basics so far, but I'm less concerned about making it super dynamic at the moment.
I really want a simple layout. Header, left sidebar, content, footer. And I want the links to be in the left sidebar (which isn't common in most layouts I'm noticed so far) and they're image links, not just text links.
But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to skin it to make it just the links. I'm not really concerned about being able to categorize posts at the moment.
Anyway, any help you guys can provide would be splendid.
Thanks in advance.
