Which theme should I use?

  1. I would like my blog -- http://overratedlist.wordpress.com -- to look a certain way. I have tried to get the look I want by tweaking a few themes (mostly Hemingway and DePo Masthead) but I have not been able to get what I want. Specifically, I would like one Page (like an About page) to show up on the "homepage" of the blog. I don't want readers to have to click to get to it -- I want it to permanent, something they see every time. I don't care much whether it's on the top or bottom. I tried using Hemingway for this, by removing all the features from the bottom three columns except the About page -- but then I couldn't figure out how to make that wider, so it just sat in the left with a bunch of blank space.

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

  2. Just set a static front page.

  3. Why don't you just make your about page a static front page for your blog? Then people would click on another link to see your posts.

    Another option is to move your "about" information into a post, and then make that post a sticky post so that it always stays at the top of your main page.

    http://support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/

    Neither of these require CSS or anything like that. Both of these features are built into wordpress.

  4. G'day Ella!

  5. Same to you, tsp! gmta!
