Hi,

I just need to create a simple layout type of site like this one here http://www.wdtvlive.com/ and the blog news like this: http://www.wdtvlive.com/blog/.  Is Orchard a good fit and how do I go about modifying it to look like the site given, for example?

Sure. These might good places to start: http://orchardproject.net/docs/Customizing-the-default-theme.ashx, http://orchardproject.net/docs/Writing-a-new-theme.ashx, http://orchardproject.net/docs/Anatomy-of-a-theme.ashx and the whole Creating themes section in http://orchardproject.net/docs/. You can also look into the code for existing themes on the gallery.

I was just looking at your helpful links and realize I'll be growing a beard to the floor before I get to code anything.  LOL.  So much to read and learn.  I really appreciate your help.
