Zero to Hero: Day Seven

  1. Changed my header and colors today.....not sure I like it. Since I started my blog about a year ago I've changed the header and colors three times!

  2. Changed my blog's background today! I like it better than plain black!

    This was great because, at the end day of day 5 I chose not to change my theme.Despite the fact that my original theme did not allow for a header I went shopping for images anyway. I found one I thought was so perfect I had to go back and change my theme to fit it in. I like the whole appearance of my blog much better now.

    I actually had just finished changing my theme from the challenge the other day and while I was there changed my header by adding a picture of some muffins I made. As my blog is about food I wanted a food picture on there. I still need to sort out my widgets now that I've changed the theme.

    Hi there,
    After you change your theme all you need to do is go here Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets > Inactive Widgets and re-install them where you want them to appear. The widget contents and settings will be the same as they were prior to changing themes.

  6. Just seen this and posted my first piece yesterday. The beginning of a big year!

  7. Hi guys, I just made some customizations to my blog: http://whythisbox.wordpress.com/2014/01/10/zero-to-hero-day-7-customize-personalize/

    Any feedback, critique, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :)
    Thanks, danielle @ whythisbox?

  8. @timethief many thanks your a legend! & you are right again. I had done some pretty strange things by diving in head first, I should go a little slower. It almost like getting lost to find my way!!! I've done some sorting and seem to be back on track it wast something I had altered on my macbook - Google settings "zoom" it had never happened before. it was not on wordpress. Im quite happy with the visuals of my blog for now ~ I'm going to focus on clarity & content of what my blog and stay out of customizing I've read a few of your comments about searching utilities? Can you expand on what searching utilities?
    Thanks again appreciate your work. Cheers Jenn

  9. Hello All
    I'm a wordpress.org (self-hosted) ZerotoHero blogger. I'd like to share my blog. Recently, I changed my theme (I can't describe how difficult it is to find a good theme). My existing theme fulfils my all requirements. Your constructive comments are welcome.

    Thank you

  11. I'd like to think my blog header is pretty decent? Does anybody think I need to change it? Would appreciate some feedback. Thanks!

  12. Hello zero to hero folks ! Well, I gave day 7 a try, I did change my header, which I like very much, and with much trepidation added a photo from Flickr with what I hope was proper attribution. I'm particularly wary of doing things like embedding youtube videos, (although I love them and think it could be fun to share them) and I found this site which answered a few questions (and made me even more wary of doing this...)
    What do you ZtoH staffers recommend about videos?
