Header image for a new page

    At each page´s “edit” section in the Dashboard there´s a dialog box, “Page attributes” which includes an “order” number at the bottom. I tried this (plus “update” of course), to no avail.



    That’s the way to do it, only you must then go to the Pages widget and set it to sort pages by page order instead of page title.


    Done! Didn´t know about that last step…
    I suppose a similar thing might be done with the remaining sidebar columns…? (i.e. the links)
    My warmest thanks again!



    You’re welcome.
    Yes, you can do something similar with the links, as long as they aren’t too many, by assigning a rating number to each one.
    But it’s probably easier to create two custom menus for your two sets of links, and replace the two Links widgets with two Custom Menu widgets. Drawback: if you add a new link the Links widget will automatically include it but a custom menu needs to be updated manually.


    Done, it´s good as it is, no need to create any custom menu for the links, the sidebar looks good enough. Too bad I can´t add any more, it´s just the allowed number.
    I guess the website is complete by now. Thank you again, all the best in the world!


    …how can I put a caption for each page´s photo, explaining what it is?
    (e.g., “Buenos Aires, aerial view”, etc.)



    a) “Too bad I can´t add any more, it´s just the allowed number.”
    I don’t know what you’re referring to, but you’re certainly wrong!

    b) Header images don’t accept captions. If you hover over the image you automatically see the title of the file. If that’s not good enough, the only thing you can do is add a note in the content of the page.


    I was referring to the links. In the “ratings” box there is an allowance of 10 (plus 0, as it seems), but as the number of “related journals” I set is 11, it´s ok (for the time being…)
    Thanks, I´ll add the note at the end of each page.
    Και στο καλό! (All the best)



    You can manipulate the ratings to sort more than 11 links. For instance, your links Papers etc, Psychiatry etc, and Samiksa etc are in alphabetical order, so they could all have the same rating number.

    (And sorry, I have to correct you: “στο καλό” means “farewell”!)


    Dear justpi,
    Thank you very much again. My website looks handsome now. I also hope to add new papers in the future. The only thing I´d wish now is to receive comments on each paper… How can I make sure the site becomes visited more often?
    Thank you also for the correction. It´s what my Professor used to say to me when the class was over.
    Γειά σας! Και να μην βασκαθείς! (Bye, don´t let the evil eye fall upon you!)


    Another question… Is it possible to include a video in a page?
