I'm working on a startup and decided to build the website using WordPress and iBlogPro. With that said, I have no html or CSS skills. Is it possible to configure the site with iBlogPro so that it looks like a business website rather than a blog? If so, could you point me to some tutorials on how? Thanks!

your wordpress site doesn't need to look like a blog, in fact it might not have a blog at all. there're plenty of tutorials online, just type "beginner's wordpress guide" in google and you'll have the instructions you need.

Where to begin ... One of the great things about the iBlogPro theme is its design which is specifically created for professional / business use rather than simple blogging, with countless variations for page layout and design.
