Dara Theme - Front/Home Page

  1. I recently added Sharing to my website. It works fine for the most part, but I have two problems:
    1. It seems to work fine on all the pages except my Front/Home Page. When I share the Front/Home Page on Facebook, The name of my site is misspelled and I can't find where the Share is picking that up from so I can correct the spelling.
    2. Also, the Share of all the other pages shows the Featured Image of that page, but on the Front/Home Page, the image space on the Share is blank.

    Help!

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

  2. Hi,

    2. Also, the Share of all the other pages shows the Featured Image of that page, but on the Front/Home Page, the image space on the Share is blank.

    I think the home page was displaying the latest posts when I looked last night. On most themes the blog page cannot have a featured image. Is this issue resolved now with a static front page set?

  3. musicdoc1, Thanks for your help.

    I've decided I just have the wrong theme. I don't want to support posting and this feature, which seems to be a prominent one in this theme, has caused me problems since I began building this site. I am an experienced website-builder, but only with MS FrontPage and MS Expressions. This is my first attempt using WordPress. I like it and am learning a lot as I go, but I just chose the Dara theme when I began because it was the first one offered to me.

    So...now my questions are "How do I change themes?", and "Where can I find a list of themes from which to choose?" And yes, I have searched both the forums and Google for an answer to this question, but could not find any.

    I'd appreciate your pointing me in the right direction.

    Thanks again...Bill!

  4. Bill,

    Here's a good place to begin looking for support pages on various topics: https://en.support.wordpress.com/. Just enter a keyword such as "themes," "widgets," "featured images," etc. in the search bar and you'll be given a list of (hopefully) relavent support pages to choose from.

    "Where can I find a list of themes from which to choose?"

    1. WordPress.com Themes Showcase -- https://wordpress.com/themes/
    2. My Sites > My Sites menu > Personalize > Themes
    3. WP Admin dashboard panel > Appearance > Themes

    "How do I change themes?"

    See the Themes support page, particularly the Activate a Theme, Browse Themes, and Switch Themes sections.

    Hope that helps.

  5. Make that "relevant." Wow, normally I spell better than that!

  6. Doc,

    Thanks! I'll take a look at these themes.

    Could you suggest one or two that is just a basic website?

    Thanks again...Bill!

  7. You're welcome, Bill.

    Some of the annual themes such as Twenty Fifteen and Twenty Sixteen are pretty basic.
