New Page function

  1. I would appreciate a bit of help/advice on the New Page function ...

    I use the Ambiru template in my private blog. Its default is a Home and an About page. I have renamed "About", calling it "Help & Tips", my intention being to set up new pages as children under the "Help & Tips" parent, with advice to users on various aspects of the site.

    But my first problem is: I don't know what such a setup looks like. Are the additional child pages visible when the Home page is visible - or only when the About (Help & Tips) page is visible. Can anyone point me to a public site (preferably but not essentially using Ambiru) showing what the New-Page arrangement actually looks like?

    I have in fact set up a new page and given it About/Help&Tips as it parent - but nothing has appeared on the site, neither when I click Home nor About.

    Any comments/advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

  2. Are the additional child pages visible when the Home page is visible - or only when the About (Help & Tips) page is visible.

    this is theme-dependent. some themes show child pages, and some don't. if it doesn't, you can place a page widget in your sidebar which will show all your pages.

    I have in fact set up a new page and given it About/Help&Tips as it parent - but nothing has appeared on the site, neither when I click Home nor About.

    if you have published the page, it should appear at the tabs where you see 'home' and 'about'. can you check if it is properly published and is not a child page?

    if you could make your blog public (just until this problem is solved), it might help us help you better, to be able to look at your blog.

  3. Hi again, Sulz ... thanks to your comments, I have solved the problem by switching to another template (MistyLook) ... now I can see my Child Pages under the Help&Tips Parent.

    MistyLook also has a sidebar (which Ambiru unfortunately doesn't, and I don't feel capable of following the techie instructions for widget-activation). But do you think it would be possible to move "Archives" and "Categories" below "Pages" in the sidebar?

    Also (1): Is it possible to remove the "Feeds on Posts and Comments" at the top right of the site?

    Also (2): Is it possible to rename "Home" to be "Front Page"?

    I have opened up the site: dk4000.wordpress.com for you to visit.
    (excuse the childish ramblings in English and Danish ... you've got to scribble something when you're making up pages :-) ... our family lives spread out in Scotland, Denmark and France, which is why a family blog will be ideal for keeping in regular, dynamic touch.

  4. heya. =) i thought ambiru has a sidebar, though it's at the bottom rather than at the side... but i'm not sure myself.

    you can adjust the widgets as you please. take note that right now, your sidebar is using the default widgets. once you add or remove a widget it will change all the current widgets you have in the sidebar now. so you have to add all the ones you want to again, basically.

    http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/12/24/what-is-a-widget/ i think this faq covers is well and should be easy enough to follow.

    i don't think you can adjust the position of the feeds or rename the 'home' page because it's part of the theme. however, there are other themes that do not use the word 'home' but 'front' page instead - for instance, the cutline theme.

    hope i managed to answer your queries...

  5. Thank you, Sulz ... a very efficient reply ... :-)

    By the way, is it the original poster who - at the end of a discussion like this - is supposed to recategorise the topic as "Resolved"?
    I did it in a previous post but wasn't sure if I was supposed to.

  6. Yes, the original poster is the only one who can change the status of a thread to "resolved" (other than the moderator and staff).

  7. Thank you, Thesacredpath ... as a satisfied inquirer, I'll do just that :-)

  8. You're very welcome, and happy blogging.
