If only WordPress had come along 20 years ago. I’d have made much better use of it. I was blogging before blogging was a thing, but maybe I’ll get back to it when I retire.
I haven’t done anything here in a long time — not that I planned on doing much anyway, but I did think I would have done more than I have. It’s a very good thing that I didn’t get too creative with my username and password or I wouldn’t have remembered it because it’s just been too long … and I’m not as young as I was.
Anyway, I decided to log in and check on things, and saw that there were a few updates available so I updated everything. There was also a new default WordPress theme available for 2015 so I changed the theme here. If you remember what the old layout looked like, please let me know if this one is better or worse than that one. 🙂
Thanks, and Happy New Year!
Ok, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to add featured images to the site and finally managed it. If I upload an image it works pretty well but I have been completely unable to access the images in the WP library on my PC. Today I tried it with my iPhone and almost got it but couldn’t quite close the deal. I could hear the filenames but couldn’t tap the button to add the selected image. This afternoon I tried it on my iPad and it worked!
Then I moved on to adding buttons to share posts on social media and email, and I think that I got it but it doesn’t seem to be working on posts, just pages so I need to take another look at the settings.
I’m getting more comfortable with this… 🙂
I’m just checking to see what an aside looks like…
I was reading about how to modify themes with child themes. It looks like it is coded in PHP…
I think that I’m getting the basics of WordPress down. I still haven’t figured out the widgets, and I think that some of the features might be a bit less than accessible using JAWS, but I think I’m getting the hang of this.
I just installed WordPress at roggeman.com but I still don’t know what to do with it. I simply wanted to play around and see if I can figure out how WP works.
