Lol that super cool, talknic! (Yeah it’s me Taxi, from MW). I love this page – the simplicity of it. I want one too! I’m signed up with wordpress but haven’t got it together yet to set up. I need help doing it!
Hi blue-eyed Talknic! I’m practicing right now! Opened a page here: https://taximondo.wordpress.com/
If you visit it, you can see that I’m having design issues – weirdly, an article headline I was posting through the wordpress bookmarklet ended up in my ‘About’ box and I can’t seem to be able to get rid of it – but I’m just experimenting around, learning the ropes etc. Once I’ve got the hang of it a bit, I will open a new and clean account under ‘Taxi’ and delete Taximondo when I’m good and ready. Say, what is the template name you’re using? Any other tips would be much appreciated. I need an outlet outside of MW and a few other mondoweisers feel the same – so I’m doing time here on wordpress for a group of us. Maybe when I’m set up you could visit too – you are so thoroughly invited! See ya on the battlefield!
My blog is the free Shocking Blue Green Theme, discontinued I think. It’s a wider text area. I did my own template for the Shocking Blue Green Theme, within the limited parameters any free blog allows. Knowing some HTML code helps so I can manipulate even those set parameters a bit.
Then there’s ‘posts’ or an article. A post can be a page or under a category or sub-category or both
When you write a post, the controls for where the post goes are usually in a panel on the right that has:
You’ll also find things like:
Save Draft — Preview
Status: Draft Pending Edit
Visibility: Public Sticky Private Edit
Publicize: Googlet: talknic Edit Settings
Move to Trash
TAGS (for search engines)
Thanks brown eyes! Yeah I’ve already figured out how to do most of the stuff you’ve mentioned, but I can’t figure out how to do fundamental stuff like delete a whole post, for instance. I mean as an admin, I gotta be able to delete stuff if I so feel inclined, right? But I can’t find that delete feature on my dashboard – I’ve looked and looked and looked! I know it’s gotta be doable and is probably right under my nose so I’ll keep looking. But I’ve taken up enough of your time, Talky, and I think I might look into going ‘premium’ so I can get ALL the technical help that I need for other stuff – like I quite like some of the community-interaction features that Friendfeed has – (unfortunately ff is shutting down in a couple of weeks) – it would be cool if my page had them and I don’t think wordpress offers these desirable features for free. I’m looking into it anyway. Thanks for your time pal.
