About Stawhu
Joined June 2015
I am 69yrs old . Father of a son and daughter both in their 40's and functioning in their own lives. My daughter lives in Fla. She is the older of the two She is a cancer survivor of almost twenty years now. My son is 41 and lives closer to me here in Ill. He and his lifemate are quite busy with their jobs and raising my two grandsons. I play pool and was working until two months ago, when I got laid off. I have been in sales for most of my life but i had to slow down a bit because of a heart condition , tachacardia , so I am hoping that I can break into this new vehicle called internet-marketing.

Thank you , I am working feverishly to get my site up. Working out situations with a premium theme page set me back a little and I switched out of it for a free one that I am getting ready to put the about me page in , which is where the premium theme Hijacked me. stawhu (Scott)

Hi uncle Stawhu,
I am happy to know you!
Forget about the money sometimes! Just think simply ways, you should relax at this age! Keep healthy, the best medicine is the spirit.
Whole life, people think think think this way, that way to survive, but people also forget to take fresh thoughts!
People love money, love everything, but rather a peaceful spirit! That's enough!

So all best wishes to you and your loved ones in 2018!

Hello Scott,♫Welcome! I am so pleased you found WA. Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. And I share all my interesting findings on my blog space. I have listed them on a blog for you. When you type in “Blogs list top rated by Loes” into the search bar on top, you'll find my goodies under Blogs. I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2018. See you around, Greetings Loes

Thank you for your welcome. I have been side tracked indirectly by my theme. I initially picked Iconic one. and found that it supported only one menu. and then I was notified that they had a pro version that was "user friendly" and was speed optimized, Easily color changed. Well, I bought it for fifty dollars.

I got the new menu categories into the main menu and was quite proud of myself. Then, I put in the privacy policy and that went well. Then I attempted to put in the About Scott page and that when things turned ugly. I typed in my content , all looked fine in site content and published. I checked live on site. What a mess.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to rectify the separations in sentences and paragraphs but couldn't get it fixed. I finally contacted support here at WA , they tried to help , Kyle tried to help no luck.

I contacted support from the theme developer and found out that the template here at WA for the about page is coded and the page receiving the about page is coded in a different manner. So, these two platforms were at war with each other.

The developer offered a solution but after working on that for a couple more days I couldn't make it work. Two days ago I switched out to a different theme. I am now finishing up the content entry and pre publish editing. It hasn't been a total waste as I think I have a much better content presentation for what I am trying to do.

What I am getting at is there are problems that come up that might not be covered in the training. It would help if I had a reference to go to along with the other options here at WA, before asking for help. I will be using your blogs as that resource .

I wasn't just trying to fix that problem. I got the review done and that will go in next after the about page comes up good , I hope. I also have three more posts to add to my site, after the review.

I didn't mean to talk your eyes off, I hope you understand what it is like to to be in a conundrum and you you think your done , What you've been through just spills out. Catharsis. Thank you again stawhu (Scott)

Scott, I just read your comment on Jozeph's post. That was a really nice comment. As my favourite people are nice ones I just had to come here and read about you.

Don't worry about your post writing or socialising. You will find that once you start it comes pretty easily. I have made on-line friends that I just know I would immediately love if I met them face to face.

If you need any help just ask.

Keep in touch.

I hope that your condition does not get any worse. It is always good to hear of people who are cancer survivors, I had two sisters that were not so fortunate, but it causes me to cherish my other siblings all the more. It has caused my faith to become stronger and to be thankful for every day. Good luck. Jerry

I might have gotten back sooner but one major thing came up. I tend to keep a lot of tabs and windows open . But, at some point back then I received a bulletin from microsoft they had an update for as usual , i put it off as do later. Well I went and did something , I think I made dinner and watched tv I may of even taken a nap.
So guess what . Microsoft saw the computer was quiet and they did their update and cleared out my Google and my Firefox windows.I could not restore at all , unlike with a Google or Firefox update which I can restore probably 90 % of the time . So, any way thanks for the touch back, I am new at computers , aside from surfing, so I don' t reach out there unless I have input that I think is helpful specific. Or, like earlier , i was made aware of a question about images and while I know O , I checked with Boomer08 to see if I could refer this questioner to him he said sure so I got back and left his name. But, I am still so new being back that I am trying to absorb a lot . stawhu (scott)

Enjoy your day.

Hi Zachery, I have been so immersed in the lessons I am trying to get a viable site up in two weeks. I am on lesson 7 and getting ready to write my first three pages ( about me ,privacy policy, and site tag.) I thank you for your welcome. I appreciate your offer to help no doubt I will probably need it as I am also new to computer as a tool not just a way to surf!!! Thank Scott, stawhu

Thanks for the reply . Maybe you can help me? I am trying to get my website up but a caution appears and says that I have to correct what is highlighted in red. However there doesn't appear to be anything in red. My domain name comes up available and so does my website but then I cannot pick a theme or transfer it? What can I do?

Transfer what website? Did you already have an existing site?

Thank you for your welcome note. I am still trying to find my way around the site while getting through the beginner lessons. Sorry it took a while to get back to you. Maybe , you could help me, in the build your website, it says I can change the name later, why would I do that? Is there some advantage? And does the website name always be reflected exactly in domain name or can they be somewhat different? thank You Scott ( stawhu)

To Sarah I did send you a reply thanx again for the welcome and encouragement. I am having trouble getting my background theme onto my website, doesn't seem to transfer what am I doing wrong? Thanx Scott

No problem Scott! =)
What happens when you try and change your background theme? What wordpress theme are you using? I can try it and attempt to change the background as well if you want

Hi Sarah, I have been immersed in the lessons and pushed on without worrying about a change just yet. I figured to get through lesson ten before worrying about a change. I am a premium member, so if necessary I will just start over again with my own domain if I can't transfer from site rubix . That will probably be a tough one. Thank you Scott stawhu

Hi Scott
I remember being immersed in the lessons and feeling quite overwhelmed. It'll get better, I promise =)
Don't worry about your theme for now, just focus on your content. Changing theme isn't so complicated. Or moving your site to a domain you own either, as a matter of fact! You'll have help to do that! =)
Take care
Sarah
