  1. We already have a blog account with you - I was told you also have a content management system I can install to allow my client to update and change the content of our web site without disturbing the back end code - is that correct?

    If so, please tell how to install, train and use it.

    Thanks.

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

  3. Hi there,
    You cannot build or use your own custom theme built from scratch at WordPress.com.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    The only themes we can use are those found here > Appearance > Themes
    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    There are two free themes, Sandbox and Toolbox designed to allow maximum flexibility for CSS editing and creating new “skins”. Toolbox is more modern and includes a lot of support for CSS3 and HTML5, so it is really only limited by your skills and knowledge.

    If you have CSS editing experience the upgrade will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but will not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. It does not allow you to remove footer links to the theme designer or to WordPress.com. Also note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes at WordPress.COM. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-css/

  4. See > Using WordPress.com to Create a Website http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    A WordPress blog can either be structured as a page based website or its conventional post based structure can be retained. That’s why understanding the differences between posts and pages, http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ comprehending the SEO implications of creating a page based structure, and knowing how to use custom menus http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    are key to decision making when selecting a theme, and setting up your WordPress.com blog. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/05/12/better-blogging-at-wordpress-com-pages-and-posts/

    On one hand, none of the characteristic "blog" features like categories, tags, authors, dates, etc. can be removed from a free hosted WordPress.com blog without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    On that other hand, one can edit a WordPress.org theme free of charge. I suggest you read this comparison > WordPress.com and WordPress.org: The Differences http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  5. THanks a million for your thorough response.

  6. You're welcome. I'm laughing because others have attacked me for being too wordy. lol :D

  7. Well - I came back here 7 hours later to re-read your response and afterward clicked on your monicker to visit your site - one cool site - but why - why would such a seasoned pro like you resort to the most ruthless, petty tactic on the 'Net?

    Why did you disable the <BACK> button on your site? WHY? !!!

    Why do such reasonably intelligent people like do things that are so inconsiderate?

    I made it back here, but it took longer than it should have because you just did not want to show me where the back door was.

    WHY? !!!

  8. Sorry, I don't understand? My browser (firefox) works just fine using the back button from timethief's site.

  9. I don't understand either? I haven't disabled the back button. :(
