Hey,

Kyle did a vid on switching your WordPress Themes. You can have a look and see if it resolves this for you It should just be a matter of Appearance, Themes and finding the Ryan Theme. Clicking and Activating it. Then going to your site and seeing the changes.

Brynlunl Premium
Yes, thanks, Philip. I have no problem changing themes back and forth, if necessary. I guess the problem is settling on one and then configuring it appropriately. I did have problems with the Ryan theme due to not fully understanding how to configure it. When I see how you formatted it, it looks great.

Another one that I like the looks of is at URL: http://www.highpayingaffiliateprograms.com/, but I don't know what the theme actually is.

The one that I am presently looking at is called Blog Era.

Oh Good, I am glad you know how to change those themes now :-) . All themes will naturally code themselves into place per thier, well, code.

Should you wish to customize your site then simply click APPEARANCE - CUSTOMIZE and you will see options to do some changes. Let me know what changes you would like if you can't see how to do them Larry.

I checked out that link and I don't see the theme name. I left him a message as well. Why don't you just leave a comment on his site and straight up ask him - I am sure he won't mind :-) .

I'm honored that you decided to follow me, Brynlunl. From your profile, it looks like we have a lot in common--especially adorable grandchildren and love of the outdoors. I'm retired and was wondering if you're nearing retirement yourself. I pray for the best for you and hope I can be of support in the future.

Well, here I am about one and a half months into this program at Wealthy Affiliate with a skeletal website and a notice from Google that it has been indexed. I have approximately 50 clicks (some are mine from another computer) and no sales. I am working on Level 3 courses and continue to type words (not cut and paste) into the system. Being a technical person, I normally do technical writing and some legal stuff, but as a casual writer, I struggle with it. Locating keywords and writing around them is new to me and causes me to worry - am I using too many keywords or not enough -- does my work become disjointed as a result. Not sure. Anyway, there is only one way to move forward and that is to keep writing these paragraphs and blogs. I understand success will come so here's to all; wishing everyone success and a great day ahead!

Larry.

Hey Larry,

Forgot to say, my membership is going to exire some time soon. I am not returning maybe up to a week I have to travel and its going to take days and I dont' want to waste my membership that way. Should it go soon please don't be alarmed as I will be back this friday or saturday :-) .

Not to worry Philip. I have made some adjustments and made my site more focused. So when you get back, maybe you can check it out. I also want to look into your other suggestion about themes.

For now, have a great trip and check back when you have time. Thank you for all the help.

PhilipC1 Premium
Thanks Larry, I am here right now should you require help. That message is just to keep you in the loop and not worrying thinking I have left WA lol. Just don't want to waste a week's members, just pointless to do so, as my time is going to be very stretched very soon. But, still here. Tell how I can help Larry :-) .
Reply
Brynlunl Premium
Okay, you mentioned that I needed to do something before I was to consider changing a theme. Not sure what that was, but thinking about it, I decided to remove the non-affiliate material from the site and plan to just post it as a blog. Was there something else that I needed to do? We could go to FB if that is preferred.
Reply
PhilipC1 Premium
Hey Larry, I just checked facebook PM's and there is nothing there regarding what to be done except to reword your WA review. As for the non affiiliate, that can be taken down and kept for another website, or, you can put that POST in the ABOUT ME SECTION as an example of the things you like to do. So, you may leave that post and provide a link in your ABOUT ME section to it so effort for it is not wasted.

OK, so if you want to change to the same theme as myself please do the following:-

GoTo, in back of WordPress, and click on TOOLS.

ALL CONTENT (There is a button there) should be clicked. This should be clicked by default anyways.

Now, just click on DOWNLOAD EXPORT FILE. Make sure you save it somewhere handy like on your desktop in a folded.

This file is a copy of all data on your website in html form. Your website is still online as normal.

It is good practice to do the above steps every once in a while. WHY? God forbid something terrible happens to your website that it is no longer online. WA keeps a back up of your site as well, this is just excellent practice just in case something does occur to your site = leaset you have a copy of it on your own laptop that you can upload and all is well.

Also, do this before you change themes. Do let me know when this is done Larry and we I can show you how to change themes as well :-) .
Reply
Brynlunl Premium
Ok. I will do that shortly. I am in the middle of something now that I cannot interrupt, but I will. Question; when will you be out of touch for a while? Today?
Reply
PhilipC1 Premium
Probably by tomorrow but if still here I will let you know Larry. Online all day anyways.

Brynlunl Premium
Ok. I am back. Sorry for the interruption. I have exported my data to both a doc folder and to the desktop.

Since you have suggested the Ryan Theme, what is it that you like about it over anything else?
Reply
PhilipC1 Premium
The Ryan Theme is very responsive for mobiles. It is clean and organized and I like how the blog roll runs. I like how the post content is centralized on the page, as other themes can put it to the side or something weird looking, and so peoples attention is dead centralized on my content.

That is it really. Let me know if you want to change to Ryan or any other theme of your fancy, and I can show you how - if you need those instructions.
Good, I am glad you got a copy of your site on my laptop now. Great news and it is wise to do so regularly even for peace of mind as well knowing if anything goes wrong you can simply import it back into wordpress.

That exported will only containre the information saved on the date you saved it. So if your site goes 'missing' somehow, you still have your site with the content you saved today. Best do this praccticce maybe once a week so you don't lose too many week's of work should it happen.

On that note, something like this happening is beyond rare so don't worry on this. Its precautions is all.

Brynlunl Premium
Ok, thanks. Good to know, as in the past I have lost many things over the years because of not properly backing up things. I back up most things the last few years, but I didn't know how to back up this website.

I have made a theme change once before at the very beginning but had to type it all back in. I think that I can do it, but maybe a lesson would help so I don't screw it up.

Also, if you have the time, maybe we can go back on FB and do a bit more on those revisions.

Hi Brynlunl,

I hope you are enjoying the WA community as much as I am.
I have relatives living in Canada, during the warmer months but they visit the Mississippi coast every year to escape the colder months and stay warm (chuckle).

Thanks for the follow, I'm doing likewise.

Hello Larry and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Great! Thanks Kyle, I will keep that in mind.

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Thank you Philip. Just one question to start with; with the Premium account what other "costs" can I expect beyond the regular monthly WA fees?
Reply
PhilipC1 Premium
Hey Brynlunl,

First off, I must apologize not seeing your question before bed time.

So, first month is $19. $49 thereafter. That is it.

Yearly, when you pay monthly, accumulates to $588.

So, yearly in one go, is $359.

There are no more additional costs to WA except one more down below for your own domain name, which, is what I love about Wealthy Affiliate. Nothing hidden, no nasty surprises or I would not have stayed with them.

JAXXY Keyword Tool is something you may want to have a look at in time.

In time, way down the road, you may wish to consider adding other things to your own site, like an email responder etc. These are small but additional costs and is something that is much further away.

Starting out - you have your http://siterubix.com. In time, you will definitely want your own dot com (i.e. without siterubix in your website name) and this is only $13.99 with WA for the whole year. Comes with privacy protection of your own online details, which everywhere else, costs extra - not with WA.

I hope I have answered your question fully Brynlunl.

Anymore, please just ask me :-) .

Regards,

Philip.

You are most welcome Larry! And yes, I do know what you mean, as my site is about exposing online scams and hidden costs are surely a sign of a deceptive site.

Should you need it for future reference, WA runs a affiliate referral program as well that you may view https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share in that link there.

Glad I could help and always here to do so.

Take care for now.
