I'm a PHP developper, and i need for a client request to set up and create a template/theme for wordpress.

I know a little about this blog engine, but i read i could use it as a CMS.

As my website will be 6/7 pages so far.

I'd have liked to know if it was just about writing a template, or will there be some others stuffs to do to get it used as a CMS ?

By the way, do you some, good resources, to start with it for people who doesn't to learn what is a CMS but more for developpers ?

I've had good luck with this book. http://www.amazon.com/WordPress-Theme-Design-complete-professional/dp/1847193099/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1257461477&sr=8-1

Depending on your needs you may want to look at Drupal as well. More flexible then WP, lots of support out there and a really friendly user base.
