Upgrade---------

  1. I want to upgrade my present blog so that I can have sub-menues. How do I do that? I like my theme--does it support submenus?
    Blog url: http://tempinnkeeper.wordpress.com/

  2. You do not need to purchase an upgrade. Some themes are deigned to provide drop-downs natively but all themes can have drop-downs when we create a custom menu.
    See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

  3. Thank you so much for your quick reply. I did go ahead a purchase a $30 upgrade on my Matala design. So what do I get for that? Should I cancel it?

    I'm still not clear on how to get sub-menus but I haven't gone on your link yet. Maybe that'll help me.

  4. If the only reason you purchased the upgrade was for drop-downs then you can get a refund. WordPress.com provides a 30-day refund on all upgrades except Domain Registrations, Domain Renewals, and Guided Transfers. You can request a refund yourself directly from the Store section of your Dashboard http://en.support.wordpress.com/upgrades/#refunds

  5. Thank you very much. I did just now request for a refund. Your link I think is very helpful. I haven't had a chance to read it all but I think that it's just what I want.

  6. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog.

  7. Hello Timethief,
    I have another question please. I assume that the tags are connected to the search bar? If so, my tags are not working correctly to make the search bar accurate. I am running a recipe blog . For instance on the front side of the blog I made a "search" for poultry and a lamb dish came up--which post/tags I checked and DID NOT have poultry tagged. What am I doing wrong?
    Thank you.

  8. I assume that the tags are connected to the search bar?

    The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

  9. I thought that they were--but maybe not. I'll look now.

  10. Actually, maybe not. How do I do that?

  11. How do you connect the tags to the search bar?

  12. You cannot alter how the search widget operates.

  13. I forgot to add that clicking any Tag will produce all posts that tag has been assigned to. You can also use the Tag Cloud widget which will display up to 45 of your most popular tags. http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/tag-cloud-widget/

  14. I understand what you have just said--however, why does a lamb dish appear when I've searched with the word Poultry. Poultry was not one of the tags I assigned to the lamb dish.

  15. That's definitely odd and it's why I flagged this thread for a Staff response.

  16. Thanks so very much timethief. I mean they should go on my blog and try it themselves.

  17. Will you please post a link to the post itself?

  18. I found it and I see the word "poultry" in the textual content http://tempinnkeeper.com/2012/07/06/cassoulet-with-lamb-and-white-beans/

    I love a good cassoulet and it can be varied using different kinds of meats, poultry, and beans.

  19. That is definitely the cause. The search looks for the posts where the searched word is present.

  20. OH--I see. I wasn't aware that the textual content was an issue as well. I just thought that the tags were the main thing. So, I thank you both for that enlightenment.

  21. You're welcome.

  22. You're welcome!

  23. Hi Timethief, I'm having trouble loading new advertising linking code on my blog: http://blog.tempinnkeeper.com. Can you help me out please?
    Thanks. [email redacted]

  24. I'm timethief but logged in under my other username as my intent is to work on my personal blog today. You refer to advertising code but no blogger initiated advertising i allowed on our blogs here.

    There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds http://www.wordads.co/ no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.com blogs.

    E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by WordPress.com. Affiliate marketing blogs, paid content and/or sponsored content are not allowed.

  25. Thanks for your speedy reply but I must not have phrased my question correctly. I have seen other word press blogs who have advertisers featured on them. I joined LinkShare and 5 advertisers have expressed a desire to advertise on my blog. However, I am having trouble figuring out how to load their linking code. I've followed the directions they have given me: paste the code on the page you want it where you want it--however, that is not working. Help please.
