I have a very basic word press site already created, its going to be very simple… a big splash welcome page with a big logo on it, and then several pages of nothing but galleries of images. Then perhaps a contact page with a contact form.

I’m not familiar with .php but not a complete idiot, I managed to build something basic already.
Is Ultra going to be too difficult for me if I dont know any .php or not a lot of html? thanksMay 27, 2015 at 10:03 pm #1648

Ideally you should be able to build your site without touching a line of code. A build process usually goes something like:
- Do everything you can with theme settings.
- Add additional functionality using plugins.
- Tweak a little using Custom CSS if necessary.
Ultra, unfortunately, doesn’t have any functionality to handle a splash page. Here are a few plugins you might consider for that task:

To answer your initial question. No, it should be relatively straightforward to build your site out using Ultra or any theme of your choosing 🙂
