Hi Everyone!

I've been looking at other blogs. The ones that seem really professional have the headline in bold white text embedded on the featured image.

There mus

I think that's just a header image you're seeing.

https://mynintendonews.com/2016/11/20/michel-ancel-talks-beyond-good-evil-2-and-wild/ so as you can see in this link - the author has removed the header at the top of the body of the text. Instead it is 'embedded' (Maybe?) on the feature image...

With clickable links on it. Hmmm

Think that's a theme feature. You can find out what theme that site is use with these two links:

Cool. Thanks

Hey everyone. I've noticed on several blogs, a very specific kind of social media plugin but I'm not sure which one it is.

It's basically all the social media icons as li

So many choices. It's good to know there is always some on to lead a direction. Thanks for asking the question.
cheers.

Hey Nick, I think the plug in that you're talking about and one that I use is called Sumome.

It's a great little plug in. It offers of course its paid features but you don't have to. Just use the free social media app. You will see what I'm talking about once you get into it.

You can also type in Sumome in the question box at the top of any page here at WA and there is some great training on it.

Hope this helps!

Wow, thanks! What a lovely direct answer. That gives me something to do now. I'll add it to the list. Thanks for your help

Hey everyone,

There are themes that have sliders on the home page for images - you could create infographics with links to your posts that could be clicked from the slider.

Ah cool idea. Thanks. I've actually figured it out now. But thanks for swinging by!

Hi Everyone,

So just recently, WA's servers seemed to be suffering a bit. I thought I'd gotten over zealous with my plugins to start with, slowing the site down. Now thi

Only have a minute, then i am off till afternoon.
I would try disabling your plugins one at a time and see if you can find any that may be slowing you down.

What puzzles me is that I shouldn't have to do that. I had all of them active before and spent some time optimizing the site. And I had those high 90's results...

Understand, but you need to start someplace. Eliminate the plug ins first, if that does not work then we look elsewhere.

OK. Stay objective, I suppose. Question for you. If I disable the plugins, then reactivate them - will they have saved all my settings? :/ if not, I'm in for one heck of a lot of tweaking!

They should retain your settings.

What is your url?
