I have taken on a job at a language school in Spain that has asked me to revamp their website for them.
From what I know, the previous designer has done a runner with the details of everything but the wordpress login itself - server info gone,plus domain rules, so all I can access is the dashboard and other sections on this page. The boss has asked that I "play around with the design a bit", change to template etc to better fit the needs of the company.
I know how to change things, but I'm afraid of doing that as it will change all of the live site dramatically, and I need to make a dummy run before publishing.
Tomorrow I'm going to sit her down and tell her that I need to know what style she wants, but this is a pre-emptive strike against the boss. I have until the weekend to learn how to dramatically change and fix problems in wordpress?
Where can I start? Any suggestions?
