I iam glad that you mentioned about the following concepts:
I've learned several web design and app development languages. I'm fluent in HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Python. When it comes to PHP and C++, I'm just scratching the surface.

I may need to take advantage of the advice on your website development. I may be able to benefit form your offer for sound and professional web development consultant to help make the road to reaching my dreams much smoother.

Thank you for following me, Mary-Ann,

I'm going to follow you back, this way we are in each other's network and can help each other reach that goal. I'm betting we can learn a lot together using the vast community here at Wealthy Affiliate. I'm looking forward to networking with you.

I got a slow start when I first started here with WA; By that I mean, sifting through all of the resources and trying to get myself focus on precisely what I wanted to do in my business.

But, once I acquired some knowledge and received help from some of the experts here at Wealthy Affiliate, I got used to working on developing my business every day. I was able to pick up a right amount of experience in Internet marketing from Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm now practicing developing the new skills that were hidden deep within me, I never knew were there. I'm sure you will also.

Mary-Ann, so far I've learned several web design and app development languages. I'm fluent in HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Python. When it comes to PHP and C++, I'm just scratching the surface.

If you need advice on your website development, my niche is just starting to show signs of life. I offer sound and professional web development consultant to help make the road to reaching your dreams much smoother.

I'm working on my proof of concept for my business and invite all Wealthy Affiliate members to visit my website to leave their opinion about my skills and test my knowledge. I love comments and lots of feedback.

I know you're as busy as I am. Thank you for following me and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. If you have any questions, I'm here to help you in any way I can. Including trading off each other services.

May God bless you, Mary-Ann, and be the light for your journey.

That's good. Really good. Happy to hear, Mary-Ann.

And very cool bio - tennis and math fan myself.

And hey, no worries, just pace yourself and you'll be fine from there. The key is pretty much to have the proper knowledge and understanding so that you can repeat this stuff over and over again.

And feel free to stop by my page sometime; you're more than welcome to.

And have a great day, will ya!

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! :)

Hi Kyle,

Thanks for reaching out. I could really use your help. I found a niche: Forex training.
I am stuck because I do not know which theme to choose. I want a static page with a slider (like Sidney) without the info beneath and then info/video about the educational platform I want to promote and I want to write reviews, experience, etc of the platform.

Which theme will suit me best?
Thanks in advance.
Mary-Ann.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

Oh, it's a pity. I love travelling. If my daughter and I could decide what we would do right now, it would be travelling (by sea or air). You know the islands and how small they are. We have to take a plane or a cruise to see something of the world.
Reply
nevrob Premium
The size of the islands i like that way you can get to see every thing.I went to Puerto Ricko and the Virgin Islands some years ago and it was really beautiful, reminds me a lot of Jamaica.I think when you see one island you have seen then all.Same climate,vegetation,and terrain.
One day when i start making enough money with WA i may take up that pursuit once more.My greatest dream is to go see the Panama Canal,i just cant visualize it i really need to see it for myself.

Yes Bob, very new to all of this. But there are some very experienced people in the community that are willing to help.

I made a website, didn't like it and started all over again with the help of friends in the community.

Hi David,

I am not advancing because I have a question about my website and I can not find anyone to help me.

Will you look at my website: stairwaytofreedom.siterubix.com ?
I have the about me - info and other posts on the same page. I want to separate them. How do I do that? Can you help me?

I hope so.
Regards,
Mary-Ann

Hi there Mary-Ann!

Sure, I can!

First of all, your "About me" is posted as a Post and not a Page.
Either copy safely and recreate it as a Page or download the post switcher plugin from here https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-type-switcher/ , activate the plugin and go to Dashboard >Posts>All Posts, hover over the "About Me" with the mouse >Quick edit and adjust.

That's why your "About Me" also has a comments thread and a post-date. There should be no comments nor post date there.

Pages are for static content such as general information about your site that doesn't require comments etc.
Examples of this would be an About Me or Contact Us page.

By default, Wordpress usually displays a summary of your latest post on the homepage. However, the twenty-seventeen theme displays the full article and can get a bit messy.

To fix this, the easiest way without messing with code is to download this plugin below. Activate it and you will now have excerpts of your posts on your homepage.
https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-excerpt

You can also control the number of posts on your homepage by going to Dashboard>Settings>Reading>Blog pages show at most


Inserting a "Read more" in your post can also help.
See attached image.


Hope that helps.

Let me know
All the best!
David

Hey Mary-ann! I wanted to stop by and say hello, how is everything going?, I hope you are enjoying the training and all the benefits that Wealthy Affiliate offers, at this point I know you are aware of how great this community is, I can assure Wealthy affiliate is the best website of its type.

Have a good one.
