That’s pretty much it. WP will be installed, I added 6 themes for you to choose from, there are many features installed, but if there is a plug-in you want that isn’t there, let me know and I will see if I can add it.
I plan on adding some photo-gallery plug-ins and there will also be a directory of artists and an event calendar you can add too! We are getting started but hope to make this a great resource for local artists.
You can friend me on FB and msg me if you have questions or need help.

Here is a great video to show how to add pages and menus.
