how to i try different themes?

  1. the 'custom menu' support doc was really confusing. the 'wordpress tips' doc was better, along with everyone's comments. i get it, now. thanks!

  2. 1-

    Question, I'm just about finished with my site. Is it best to purchase the domain name through wordpress or through GoDaddy or some other resource? If you can, briefly, explain the advantages or disadvantages.

    Lastly, the only thing I'm hung up on are creating drop down menus under the menu headers. Seems to be the last thing obstacle. Any advice appreciated. The docs aren't explaining it well. THANK YOU!!!!

  3. 1. Volunteers don't make such recommendations. Only piad consultants do and that doesn't happen on support forums. :)
    2. Creating dropdowns in a custom menu is a matter of dragging and dropping menu items and indenting them. See the image here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#changing-the-order-of-menu-items-and-creating-sub-menus

  4. 1) I use WordPress.com as it's cheaper and I always know I can whine in the forums or email and get my problems solved.

  5. Thanks!

    On the second issue, I don't understand where I'm creating the menu to 'drag and drop'-from.

    On the second issue, I don't understand where I'm creating the menu to 'drag and drop'-from.

    All menus are created here > Appearance > Themes
    To the custom menu we create we add items by dropping and dragging them into place. If we include Pages then we drop and rag the sub-pages below the Parent page and so on. See > Here’s a link to a custom menu walkthrough > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    SIGH ... what are you creating drop downs from and to?

    If you have no content and have yet to assign any Categories to posts then trying to set up dropdowns to non-existent sub-Categories isn't possible.

    SIGH ... The frustration I have is that when a blog is private (rather than than be accessible to view with search engine indexing blocked - option 2 here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/) is that threads like this go on and on and on. When we Volunteers actually can see what the blogger is doing we can give pertinent answers in double quick time.

  7. sorry to make you 'sigh'. perhaps you should consider volunteering somewhere else. if you need my site to be public-SIMPLY ask. you have the expertise-NOT ME. if you know that it goes on and on-use your understanding to nip it in the bud.

  8. definitely will be registering an official complaint against you 'time thief'. that behavior is not necessary in an, otherwise, supportive forum. BTW, 'time thief', your contributions have been confusing, lengthy and not helpful.

  9. You need to chill. She's answered your questions.

  10. and, insulted me. insults are not acceptable. so, no, i'm not "chilling". i'm letting someone know when they are offensive. i think that's fair.

  11. An insult is "you're a touchy bitch" not "Sigh."

  12. Guys, really, let it go. I've moved on. Finishing my site with the help of friends. Good luck with your endeavors. Life is more valuable than venting on a thread. Peace.

  13. Life is too short to take "Sigh" personally.

  14. I didn't insult you. I'm just a human being speaking to another human being and I answered your questions. I gave you some insight into how hard it is to visualize what we Volunteers cannot see. I'm still willing to answer any questions you have.

    You cannot create drop-downs in a custom neu from items that do not exist to items that do not exist.

    When we publish a post and assign Categories, Sub-Categories, and Tags to it the software automatically posts it to the Archives, Categories pages, Sub-Categories Pages and Tag pages. Those pages are dynamically created by the software unlike the static Pages we create example: About Us; Contact Us. Until there is a published post with Categories, Sub-Categories, and Tags assigned to it there is no data that the software can display on the dynamic pages. Only posts can have Categories, Sub-Categories, and Tags assigned to them, not Pages. That's explained in the articles I linked to.
