    Roughly how long will it take me to learn WordPress? I am starting from ground up. Also what would be some good resources that I could learn fastest? Thanks!

      Depends how deep you want to go. Takes a few hours to gets the basics down — there is a learning curve, but it’s not too steep.

      Once you’re familiar with WordPress itself you need to familiarise yourself with the theme you’re using.

      Some are easier than others. If you buy one from ThemeForest (for example), check the reviews thoroughly before actually making the purchase.
