Help with pages and affiliate links

  1. I want my wordpress.com site to look more like a website and less like a blog. I have a static homepage and my pages set up, but I would like to put pictures and a brief summary of each article on the appropriate pages, linking to a page with the full article itself. I can't figure out how to do this though.

    I also can't figure out how to add my affiliate advertising links in the sidebar. Can someone help me?

    The blog I need help with is therealrealhousewife.wordpress.com.

  2. I also can't figure out how to add my affiliate advertising links in the sidebar.

    Not allowed

    You might also review the TOS before you get too far along:

  3. Ok, well that's fine. I'm going to be switching to the paid wordpress.org in the future so I'll do that then.

    Could someone please address the first part of my question?

  4. Nevermind, I think I figured it out.

    Note that you can create excerpts in the posts on the front page of your blog very easily by splitting content and inserting "the more tag" into your posts. The result is a brief summary followed by a "read more" link and when that link is clicked the posts opens on its own page.

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus
