Authoring & Writing Content

writing is all over the place how can i correct this

Not sure what you mean.

YOU should be writing your content, not a plugin. A plugin will take content from other websites or rewrite content so that it's not readable by humans.

You can write your content in notepad or other text editor then copy/paste into Wordpress so you don't risk losing the content while typing it!

Does that answer your question?

Thanks nat tried that but it always change when I.add image or when it shows up on the site I think its the theme maybe or im not using the kitchen sink right

You have to place your cursor where you want your image before you go to select the one you want and then decide on whether you want it on the left center of right of the page...it will always toss your content around if your not careful. I think this is what you are talking about anyways. :))

Thanks k will do

the pros/cons of linking images over words?

Just another tidbit to add re: mobile devices. Some themes use colors on active links that really don't show up, and I imagine that it would be very difficult to see text links on some devices especially if the reader is outside in the sun... on the beach... sipping a drink with an umbrella in it.... Ok, back to reality... Anyway, for this reason, I have been changing my links to the "common blue" with an underline when I'm writing a post. If text links do convert better, I'm hoping to help readers actually "see" that there's a link.

Carson told me that text links convert better. Also, remember that many people are on mobile devices, and they can't see which an image is clickable the same what you can when you hover with a mouse.

Still, I've done my own testing and found that some people do click images. Depends on the situation, but if you can only choose one, I think text links are better.

Thanks nat got you

I am having trouble linking my images to amazon, if I do not use the image only from amazon, the link does not work. Any help?

Did you sign onto amazon associates and get the exact affiliate link to use? And then when you upload an image, click on the pencil icon, and paste that link there.

Make sure you check the "open in new tab" box so visitors don't lose their place on your site.

Hope this helps!

I just did both, if one don't chose the text link they might choose the picture link, only on my product pages mainly.

thnks k makes sense to me

I'm not the expert in this field by any means, but I've always been told that text links work better. Personally, I like photo links but the evidence seems to point otherwise. And from my own limited experience, I have to say text. Good Luck!

thanks a lot carla i like linking images but afraid they might get missed so text it is or both lol

Authoring & Writing Content

the writing shows up fine on the edit page but it changes when i go to website page

content writing solved t/y ALL

The back end will always look a bit different from the front end because of page width differences.

If you are having trouble with this because of images, my suggestion is to right-align the images as it will cause fewer issues. Using fewer images will also solve this problem

I also recommend that you do not create posts that are dependent on a specific alignment of text because the page will be seen differently on each device. It might look perfectly set up on your computer, but someone on a tablet, phone, or different size monitor will see something different.

hey nat thnks for the reply but could it b my theme page and will my pages stay if i change my theme page

The "theme" of a page cannot be changed, but you can change the theme of your site.

Can you show me the page where this is happening (if it's published)?
