Me too! haha. My developer flaked on me and I haven't had much luck getting someone to edit my themes since.

If you don't mind working with offshore guys, try freelancer.com :)

If you know 100% what you want, you should be able to find freelance developers that can get the job done for relatively cheap.

Thanks! I'll check it out when I get a chance. I thought about elance.com as well. Just haven't went into all of the blah blah to post a listing on there. My problem is that I know what I want, but since I'm a designer and not a developer, I have trouble communicating it. Most everything I want is pretty simple and already planned and designed, I just need a code monkey to make the magic happen, haha.

What exactly do you mean by "create codes"? I'm a web site developer and I have no idea what that is. There are some good web-site development platforms out there that make it easy for non-programmers to make a basic website. Shutter Bug magazine sponsored one for photographers. I don't know where it's at now. Smug Mug might be another, although I'm not familiar with it. It would cost you a lot less to use one of those. People who do custom websites don't come cheap.

Try to explain precisely what you want? with some links and details. There are obviously several web developers here!

Adding plug ins should be easy if you already know how to use wordpress?

Developing new functions is a different job, and if the coder doesn't already work with Wordpress, it can take a lot of time only to learn how it is build, classes, functions, etc. before to plug any new code in.

Wordpress can be overwhelming. I had to learn it in 3 days because I taught a Junior level web design course at my local university and I had to teach my students how to implement and customize the design and layout of their own blogs. Came in handy, as I taught myself by building my own photography blog that matched my website.

cheap labor never sounded good. You know the saying "you get is what you pay". No respected /good designer/developer works for those sites.

When did installing and configuring a WordPress site become "programming?"

When you go beyond basic theme installation and tweak both the PHP & CSS.

A highly recommend: A Photo Folio. It is a high level but affordable web building site that is very easy to set up. It is a grand to set up (which you can pay in 4 quarterly payments) and that is it. You only pay your monthly server after that.

It is very important that you are able to update your site yourself. I used a designer for my first site and it was a pain to get it updated. Sometimes they will charge you to do that as well. I then did Live Books which was fine but switched last year to A Photo Folio for a whole new site (external link) and have been very very happy with them.
