I'm using a 2016 theme. My tagline displays on desktop, but not on mobile. Any ideas?

not all themes are super mobile responsive. If the tagline is important, then I think your only choice is to change Themes.

Thanks Maddy.

I changed my theme a week ago, the next day my site dropped off the first page and has been hanging at the bottom of the second page. Did my new theme do this?

Of course not.

Your Google rank is based on the words in your posts and pages so your theme cannot make any difference. Unless it makes it harder for your visitors to navigate your site. As with all ranking whatever position you or your website occupies depends on the competition.

I see. Thank you Marion, good afternoon to you too:)

I'm not sure that the theme could do that. Have you still been adding new content?

No, not for awhile, and that's probably why. It just seemed funny to me that I dropped that far the day after I changed the theme.

coincidence maybe? Maybe the other sites had added more fresh content and it dropped you done?

Yeah, trying to make sense out of all that stuff and almighty Google will drive you mad, you know? Thanks Hailey, good afternoon to you:)

I'm looking to get into this niche, but given that most of the USA is still in the dark ages concerning marijuana, I figured I had better ask.

Yes, the one Loes mentioned came in my mind, too...

Thanks Gerlinde:)

Yes, this is one of them: https://www.cannabisanimus.com/
the site is from https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/teddae

Thank you Loes, I knew I could count on you. You rule!

As far as I know yes, cos someone else has one too.
(Can't remember the name tho' - but I've seen it and commented on it.)

Thanks Cate:)

I think it depends on the type of use of the cannabis plant you wish to promote.
There are so many ways to use it, for so many things....

BTW, I've heard of places that use marijuana as a relaxative in controlled doses for patients in palliative care....

Yes Therese, there are so many positive uses for it, which makes the fact that I have to ask this question pretty silly:)

Governments are so much more fearful than people.....:-()

Don't get me started on just how sad our government is now Therese...:)

Ok, sorry☺
I think that through the increased networking potential nowadays, many a change for the better must, and will happen.....:-)

This is pretty weird, my buy button links are disappearing from my pages. I keep laying them back down, they keep running off. What's up with that?

Hey Brad,

Using Firefox v50.1.0 on Windows7, I have not Amazon embedded iframes showing, and not linked images to Amazon showing ... yet on all other browsers ... POOF! Both are displayed. Apparently this is a Windows7/Firefox failing only, so I've been told.

Bless you Trish, thanks for taking the time for me. I use a Mac, but I am using Firefox. I'll switch to Chrome and see what happens, although I won't be near a computer for awhile. Thanks again:)

You are most welcome Brad, and I truly hope you will let me know if this did solve your issue or not.

I had some disappear yesterday. I'm not sure what's happening:(

It's an adventure ain't it?:)

Two of my YouTube videos have been taken off my site. I am promoting another company's products, and the videos are theirs, so I'm assuming they are responsible. Does anybody h

You cannot upload other people's videos to your own channel, this is a copyright issue. Normally they would tell you and ask you a written permission. I don't know how your case went.

You can only EMBED other people's videos in your blogs, not declare that they are yours (What you do when the are on your channel)
Hope that helps to clarify

Thanks Heidi:)

Even though everyone always tells me that I am wrong, YouTube videos *are* copyrighted materials and if the original owners don't want you to use them, they can and will have them removed from your site. The misperception that 'if it's on YouTube, then I can use it' is so entrenched that sometimes no amount of education can change it. The YouTube licensing agreements are horrendous and confusing at best. For me, I steer clear.

Thanks Mel. Even though they are YouTube, I still asked for permission to use them, which was granted. It's clear to me now why using them is a bad idea. Even though I'm basically working for these people for nothing, I'm still using their content, they can do whatever the hell they want.

It can even be as bad as a competing affiliate site that gets your videos removed (which happens immediately upon complaint while the investigation is being conducted), so big-money affiliates often target their competitors even though they aren't the ones that hold the licenses. As I said, I won't go near YouTube with a 10-ft. pole. All of my content are behind paywalls.
