This video tells you how to

  • Stop getting emails about pingbacks
  • Change nested comment settings
  • Change the order of your comments
  • Add pages to comments
  • Ban naughty commenters
  • Change default user images

I go through some of the reasons why I've changed some of these settings, and why you may or may not want to change them. If you have any questions, let me know below!

I just got this, so decided to stop by and say hi, and bye. So much stuff going on lately, that I'm going a little nuts, so I'm trying to downsize everything, and WA, if I did it right, would take up too much time right now, so Instead of renewing, I cancelled my membership, for now anyway. I'll be downsizing at my antique mall too, going back to one space, and just simplify all ways around. I plan to start making things (jewelry, mosaics, ceramics, etc.), which I enjoy, and may even try Etsy, since I know people who have sites there who can help me out if I need it. Just going on a different path and see where I end up.

I just wanted to say goodbye, and thanks for all the help and encouragement you've given me over the last year. If they had personal coaches, and we could choose, you would be mine. Anyway, I'll be trying to get things together on the outside, and who knows, maybe I'll give this a try again in a year or two, depending where I'm at. Good luck with your site, and all you do, and again, thanks for everything.

It's been great hanging out with you, and I wish you the best in your IRL business ventures! Also, you should look at https://www.thecraftstar.com/ if you are doing hand made art. I know they are a startup that is starting to gain some ground on Etsy!

Thanks, I just checked it out. It's small, but worth keeping an eye on. There are a few others I know of too, and while Etsy is huge, they have some good training, a good place to get started, I go there often for ideas.

Again, it's been great. I figured I'd be kicked off by now, but I guess not, since I'm paid through the end of the month. Anyway, off to my next venture. Take care, and I wish you all the best.........Cindi

Your explanation of the nesting was helpful. Pingbacks and trackbacks are still a bit confusing to me as to relevancy. I don't want the wrong type of people connecting to my site. On the other hand some people like them. Are they any good, Nathaniell?

You can totally ignore them. There's no reason for you to link back to a site that has linked to you. People will link to your site regardless, but you do not have to reciprocate with a pingback. It's basically saying, "Hey guys, here's a blog that thinks I'm awesome."

Unfortunately, when you get stared, most of these are not real people linking to you!

Nathaniel, thank you so much for the video. It really explained a lot of things in regards to word press. Looking forward to more and more.
