I would like to better understand how to utilize my WordPress theme and how to add logo, upload videos change layout etc. Are there individual theme tutorial from WordPress?

Some themes have forums, where you can ask questions!

Most of the time the characteristics of the theme description are all you need!

Thanks Mike.

Hey Tommy,

If you are using, say, TwentyEleven theme and, say, you want to reduce white space below the navigation (or menu) bar, you can search on Google like using: "TwentyEleven - how to reduce white space below nav bar" (without the quotation marks, of course).

Be sure to read through the several posts and using another browser session, try each one resolve that sounds similar to what you are trying to achieve. However, be sure to read right to the end of the queries posted because the first resolve listed may not work and you won't know until you've read the entire conversation.

That is the BEST way to learn how to customize a theme is to customize what YOU want changed.

Also, be sure to use a child theme if you want to alter the style sheet. In this way, your website changes will NOT be over written when you update your theme.

Thank you Trish, some great advice which I'll be sure to follow.

Youtube have WordPress tutorials on individual themes

Type in your WordPress Theme in your browser and click on

videos you may be able to find a tutorial on your theme

Thanks Richard, I'll go and check out youtube to see if I can find a tutorial for my theme.

Only if the theme designer creates one. Most of the free themes do not have anything like that. Sometimes you can look up a theme on WordPress.org to see if there are any help files listed.

I thought as much Mel, I have tried WordPress so i think I'll check out Youtube as Rich908 advised.

Thank you
Tommy

The reason I ask this question is that the business I am trying to set up is narrowed down into a particular region of the UK.

Hi Tommy, just check in the domains section here at WA, while trying to purchase the domain, if it is available then is fine, I guess, if not, search online about the domain, there are many domain providers who are offering various domains.

Thank you Igor, I've managed to purchase a domain.

All the best
Tommy

Glad you got sorted. Al and Tania :-))

Hi Tommy, I find Name Cheap offers good value. Irv. https://www.namecheap.

Thanks Irv, I'll take a look.

I would try GoDaddy Tommy :)

Thank you Jude, i had a feeling that that was what i needed to do.
How's everything going?
Tommy

WA only has top level international domain names. dot com, dot org, dot net. You'll need to buy your country specific domain name somewhere else.

Thank you Marion, i will check out somewhere else for the .co.uk.

How are you by the way?
Tommy

Yes you can, but for you it must be workable for your region.

Thanks Mike, much appreciated.

All the best
Tommy

Hi, Tommy, type in the domain name and it should tell you what is available: com, org, co.uk, etc.

Thanks Harry, i did type in what was available and a few sample names but .co.uk didn't appear so i assume that they are not available here at WA.

All the best
Tommy

you can buy any domain from WA

Cheers Gordon, thank you for answering.

All the best
Tommy

Oops seems I was wrong sorry about the misinformation

No problem Gordon, I've made my fair share of mistakes here and will probably continue to do so :))

The issue is that at the start of each of the reviews on my blog roll, the first sentence starts for all of the reviews with 'by' I'm not sure why and would like to remove it.

Hi Tommy, I have never come accross this problem before. I have look through the comments and have noticed you have some solutions. Irv.

OK - went to your site.
Freaky!

I agree with Tim (Dreamer56).
... probably theme related - experiment with a different theme and see if it goes away.

Thank for checking the site out Joanne, the css appears to be the problem. Will need to make some changes once I've rested my weary head.

All the best
Tommy

Sure does. Meet me in the PM, Tommy.

Hi Chris, this is my site newcareernewlife.com. Thank you.

LOOKS LIKE TEDDY BEAR TO THE RESUCE....IF YOU FIND A WAY CAN YOU TELL ME TOO AS I WOULD LIKE TO TURN THE AUTHOR BUTTON (DETAILS) OFF ON SOME OF MY POSTS TOO XOXOX TO YOU AND YOURS

Ok Tania, once i get it all sorted out.

XOX CHEERS TOMMY

Tommy I think that is referring to who wrote the article and your name should be there. It is theme dependent and would probably take some editing of .css to change.

If you would like send me a PM and I will look into it.

Hi Tim, thanks for jumping into the rescue, I had a good chat with Chris Scott and he figured out that it was the css where the problem lay (did you like the way I made out I knew what css was!). I will probably make a change to the theme to see if that helps the issue once I find a new one to go with.

Cheers Tommy

can i get a link to see please as i am not sure exactly what you mean?

Thanks for diving in Dirk, the problem appears to be with the css. I will make some changes in the morning once I've had a good nights kip.

I'm currently in Spain and having a bit of difficulty trying to upgrade my Jaaxy account as I don't understand the language on the instructions. I understand that it is a geo-l

You should PM this question to Carson, Tommy

Hi Loes, It all honesty by not receiving a response it forced me to figure it out for myself, and being even more honest with you, it was quite simple. All I had to do was translate United Kingdom into Spanish, then find the appropriate match in the language drop down menu and hey presto language changed.
I bet a lot of people were thinking if he can't work that out then he may as well give up! :))

Thank you for responding.

Nice you've figguered it out by yourself, pat on the back!

Ha, ha sometimes if you're not left to figure things out, you never actually learn. This was a perfect example, thanks for the pat on the back.
