No. If you want a Wordpress website, buy a good theme and get to work.

Probably not. WordPress is its own world, use Wordpress tools.

Yeah didn't think it was gonna be so easy, the thing is I have so much design control with Indesign and with wordpress sites they all look like templates and I wanted to create a digital magazine the would resemble the print version so I wanted to translate the mag in wordpress since Indesign has the tooling in HTML5 and Publish Online feature.

I don't know much about Wordpress, but it seems to be its own world. I see that if you have HTML5 people sell converters from HTML5 to Wordpress, so you'd be trying to push through many layers of conversion. Detailed design control is kind of alien to the web world anyway; you can only suggest, not control like a PDF or printed page. If you're reaching the limits of Wordpress, you might consider moving to HTML sites and an HTML editor (NOT InDesign; that's a poor third best HTML editor).

The limits of WordPress? Trust me, because I do know a lot about it...you'd have one hell of a time reaching its limits. There is almost nothing that can't be done with it.

I'm working with a site in wordpress now I'm just not that familiar working with custom features. The reason why I want Indesign to work is we're creating a print version of our magazine and wanted the digital magazine to come from the same build-out.

Then export a PDF and use one of the many WordPress plugins designed to display them on your site.

This thread is four years old, but its resurrection is notable as a more general example of what I've said in other recent posts: Many novices and even more advanced designers are coming to the field with a very blurred view of what tool does what and how... on which platform.

 

It's not a universal set of elements like Lego or Meccano, friends. And in general, the attempt to make every tool do every job is not progress.

Agree with what? Nothing has changed and nothing is likely to, either. InDesign is not a web authoring tool. The possibilities are already covered here so I am going to lock this discussion.
