You're welcome, Celia.
A photo editor allows you to edit your photo, like adding your name, in your case so when it shows up online, it will be attributed to you. I just downloaded a trial copy of Photoshop precisely for that purpose but there are others. Another blogger uses photoscape (photoscape.com).
Oh, I did more than enjoy SA. It's an amazingly breathtaking country, no wonder you're homesick!
We had planned to go for World Cup but I'm glad we didn't. There would have been too many people and I'm sure we wouldn't have had the same experience. After I returned, I realize I used to know your current CEO of tourism. I had no idea that she had returned home. Small world....
What is Freshly Pressed? I keep seeing that and the way I understand it, it's a place on WP where bloggers can post their blogs to get noticed by other bloggers? Correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks. I'll have to check out some of those blogs, in that case.
Looking at the post on photo editing, you can get a less expensive version of Photoshop called Photoshop Elements. It doesn't have all the tools as the professional version but for users trying to accomplish basic editing, it's really easy to use. www.journeyed.com offers student and faculty prices with ID proof.
You should definitely read Freshly Pressed, Tosh. That's where I've found some of my blogging friends and read some really great posts. Check this post on WP about how to be a featured blog on FP http://en.support.wordpress.com/five-ways-to-get-featured-on-freshl...
Thanks, Tosh, that's exactly the one I have -- I completely forgot it the full title. I'll check out journeyed.com. Thanks for sharing.
When you have a new post, add tags via the Post Tags option. On my blog, it's located on the right column. The tags you select will connect to that particular post but will become part of your overall list of tags.
The files I've attached show you the tags that are added and how they show up in your post.
Hope that helps?
So there's WordPress.com -- where you get a free site, theme (the look of the blog), etc. The url usually looks something like this http://yourname.wordpress.com. On WordPress.com, you get a link with your subscribers as well as a link to blogs that you subscribe to. To read the blogs you subscribe to, go to My Account/Read my subscriptions.
To see which blogs you subscribe to, go to My Account/Manage my subscriptions
To read comments you've made on these blogs, My Account/Track my comments
To see who's subscribed to your blog, navigate to Site Stats/subscribers
Now, if you have a WordPress.org blog -- meaning you self host -- you have a lot more flexibility but you also have a lot more work! Whereas wp.com everything's easy, wp.org you're responsible for everything. To get subscribers, look under Appearances for a link to widgets to see if there's a widget for Subscribers. If not, look at Appearance/Plugins. Click Add New and search for subscribe. You should get a list of all the subscribe plugins that are available for your theme. Read the details and install the one you prefer.
You can subscribe by email to blogs you like to read. They'll be delivered to your inbox for you to read.
Hope this helps,
PS: I feel like I've forgetten something else, will email again when I remember.
Yes, that was helpful and thank you again. I've also learned how to add tags. Whew!
Now...I have my blog set up like a website. From what I can see, any other posts I add to those pages won't be the same as how the posts are formatted on the blog page. For instance, when I try to add content to my Authors' cafe page, I can only edit it because pages other than the blog are not like a blog, where comments can be posted for each entry. Does that make sense?
The other pages aren't blog-type pages, is what I'm getting at. They are editable but more like website type pages. Hope that makes sense.
Glad it helped!
So I think what you're saying is you need a comment form/box for your pages - am I getting it?
If you're not getting a comments form on your pages (sounds like you're getting them on your posts) you can go to Appearance/Plugins and download a comment plugin. Once you download, you have to activate it to make it work with your theme. That should solve your problem.
Let me know if it does,
