Hey Annie, just saw your question in the live chat but it was already 12 min ago. So I figured I'll leave a comment here on your profile:

Make sure your image's file name doesn't have any special characters like an apostrophe. Dashes (-) and underscores (_) are fine, but remove anything else (for example spaces and apostrophes).

And wouldn't you know it, that's EXACTLY what the problem was! Thank you! Usually the computer doesn't let me add any but it apparently allows me to add an apostrophe & I'm not typically accustomed to writing anything to be grammatically incorrect so I didn't even realize it counted as a Specail character until I took it out & it solved the problem. Lol. Thanks again.

Hey,

Since you were so much help with my last photo related problem I was wondering, do you happen to know how I put a photo on my home page? I have a really great one I made of the blog name on a really cute background but I can't fugue out how to put it there. If really appreciate any help you could give! Thanks in advance!

Hey glad that solved it! :D Yeah many people are not aware of how important it is to not use special characters in file names.

Hey Annie sorry I was gone for 3 days and didn't have access to my computer. Whether or not you can put an image on your home page largely depends on your theme (without changing the code manually). So you need to google your theme's name and "how to put image on blog page", maybe you'll find something.

The other thing you can google for is "theme name + how to put logo in header".

Also, in your WP dashboard, go to "Appearance" - > "Customize". Have a look at all the options, there might be a sub-panel where it says something along the lines of "upload logo".

That's for putting an image where your blog's name currently is.

If your theme doesn't support that, there are only two options:
1) Change the code manually (you could hire a freelancer on Upwork or Fiverr),
2) or switching to a theme that supports this

Thanks!

Yea, I was able to figure out the "Customize" thing, but then I had the problem of the logo being bigger than the Posts were.

I didn't know, at the time, that if you click "Change Logo" there's a button for "Edit Image" really small next to where it tells you the image size.

Since I didn't know that at the time, I instead tried going to my logo maker app & shrinking the logo really small & uploading it all over again!

When that didn't work, I finally noticed the tiny blue "Edit Image" hyperlink. Eventually, with a lot of trial & error, & switching my theme dozens of times to find one I actually like that would put the logo in centered & didn't leave tons of blank white space for a reason that is completely beyond me, I did get it to work, although I feel like now the logo lacks the same crispness it had before I edited its size.

I was a bit peeved that I couldn't change the logo or title alignment or how much extra white space is added when the logo is up, but I finally found one that I do actually like even with all of the peculiarities involved.

I'm hoping that sometime today the "Site Feedback" tab actually has 2 sites for me to give my feedback on. Every other time I've checked there were none available. I get the reason for the 2:1 ratio rule for that feature, but it does make it difficult to get any feedback.

I really hope the site looks okay now & this is the theme & format I can stick with. For me at least, the things that take the longest to get done are always the things like theme, font, colors, placement & design bc it's really important to the success of the site but there are so many options. Also, I'm the most indecisive person you'll ever meet! LOL. So I have spend hours in a row for several consecutive days on some of those choices & then often had to change them as time moved on bc that one doesn't center the logo or this one doesn't look good once you add in the things from the next lesson.

I'm hoping that it is good enough now that this can be the final one, but I'm not going to get my hopes up too high if possible bc I don't want to fall too in love with the look only to have someone give feedback that the background is no good or the theme won't work well with my niche or something.... Fingers Crossed!

Thanks again for all your help!

Hey Annie great job figuring this out yourself! Don't let design stop you from your core tasks, such as finding keywords & creating content. There are plenty of "ugly" blogs that make money every month :D All that matters is that readers can easily find the information they are looking for, the rest is subjective.

With that said, if you get 5 feedbacks here on WA and everyone giving the same critique, then investigating is a good thing. Else, I wouldn't take *design* feedback too much to heart, when it's about design everyone has a different opinion xD

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Thank you! Everyone has been so helpful & sweet! The training is amazing! Everything is so exciting!

Yea, a year is what I keep hearing too. I'm disabled so I'm not currently working. I wanted to find something I could make into a lifelong source of work-from-home revenue so that down the line, no matter my health, I'll always have steady income. I'm completely willing to put in the time it takes to biuld something that will last.

I'm still looking for something I can do for money in the mean time but long term I think this will really be helpful!

Thanks so much for reaching out! Best of luck to you as well!๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you! I appreciate the support! So far, the lessons are really helpful & easy to follow. WA training is really helping me to actually understand all of this much better & probably much quicker than if I asked a friend or tried using Google alone. All of the instructions & tools seem really amazing.

As a whole, everything that WA has to offer seems to be an effective, or maybe even ideal, way of organizing, teaching, & applying all of the most necessary, helpful, user-friendly, in-depth, & wide-ranging & lucrative training & tools all in one place & for a very reasonable price! Especially considering how profitable the sites I create using WA training & tools could potentially prove to be!

I honestly can't imagine another program or platform being this helpful & having this much potential for less money. I'm very glad I found it! All of the constant support is also a dream come true for me bc I'm so incredibly indecisive, terrified to make mistakes & I tend to WAY overthink things!!! LOL. Thank you for making yourself available!

Do you mind my asking what it is that you do? Like what kind of business you run or what your niche is? The amount of options is incredible!

Nice meeting you!
Annie

Hey miss Annie, you know as well as I know that by doing mistakes and doing wrongly or encounter problems along the way it's somehow good!

Firstly because we have tried, secondly because now we are challenging ourself to get instructed in learning how to tackle the mistakes/problem and overcome them!so we learn as this's the very scope of Life!

About me and what I m doing? well, my niche is simple and it's all about affiliate products, no matter under categories are, so I join affiliate programs and they give you the license to use your own product link that I insert in my post/review etch. to my website,
if any of my visitors click on that particular link and purchase the product I get a commission in money true Paypal,
https://a1shoponline4you.com/

also, I sponsor Wealthy Affiliate which is a great way to start in earning money ( it's a recurring payment if you get people to join WA so it's great!) and pay your annual fees with it,

anyway if you browsing profiles here at WA, look at the bottom left side of the screen under the profile photo and you can see the website and other links that members have where you could go and have an Idea and find what may it's of relevance to you
in finding your Niche,

I invite you to have a look and join my Wealthy Affiliate Australia new group at Facebook by clicking the link below, it can be useful for you, Ok.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/358235564902821/

I recommend for you if you intend to join as a Premium Member here to first utilize the $19 discount premium Membership
so you can see and use all the feature here at WA,
have a look on the new affiliate programs that we do have here with companies online that pay you to sponsor them
plus keep in mind that as a free member you get to use and see only get 25% of what really WA it's! and believe me, only the training given is fare more worth than the yearly premium membership fees!

so the $19 fees for a premium member for a Month is for you the first step to really evaluate what Wealthy Affiliate is and what can make for you happen!

then if you want to be part get the full year as it's of great Value!
( 29 dollars a month if you do that) big saving!

Ok hope to see you in the group at Fb.

Thanks for the advice! I am planning on upgrading before the week is up for the $19 but I had no idea that paying yearly saves so much! Thanks!

About the FB group, you said it's an Australian WA group. I live in America, does that matter or can I join anyway?

Thanks!
