Phone Support?

  1. I am having a hard time understanding how to put posts under a page. I have read the support docs and had a friend who uses Word Press for his site and neither of us could figure it out. We are also confused on putting photos on as they don't seem to be easy to manipulate.
    Is there a way I can speak with someone by phone about this?
    thanks

  2. There is no phone support here at WordPress.com.

    The greatest barrier to understanding how to create custom menus is not understanding that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to multiple pages. We can only create the appearance that we have done that and that's means understanding the differences between posts and pages, and between static pages we bloggers create and dynamic pages the software creates is critical.
    Here’s a link to a custom menu walkthrough > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    The alignment icons in the WordPress editor are for aligning text; they are not for aligning images. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#alignment They are used to achieve wrapping text around images on either the right or left hand side, or to display an image that's centered without text on either side of it. If the text beside the images does not occupy the same amount of space that the image beside it does then the text wrapping will continue and the images and text that follow will have a staggered appearance.

    • Align-left means position left, with the rest of the content wrapping around the right side of the image.
    • Align-right means position right, with the rest of the content wrapping around the left side of the image.
    • Align-center means position center, with no wrap-around (= the rest of the content below the image).

    Every theme has a maximum displayed image width http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/maximum-image-width/ so it's important to keep that in mind when posting multiple images side-by-side. If you want two images to be side by side on the same line start by setting the alignment of both images to left. See > http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/image-alignment/ To prevent the staggered effect what you do is insert the following snippet of code into the HTML editor after each image/text pair:
    <br style="clear:both;" />
