My son-in-law did the work of combining it and we made some changes on it, but then things went kinda of bad,as he got busy and he got irritated with me and for a while we did not communicate.

I think my son-in-law is the main administrator of it and has done something so that only he can make changes to the widgets etc. Meanwhile I still need to get going and be able to make changes on my own site. I don’t want to bug my son-in-law about it as he gets very temperamental and isn’t very patient. Is there anyone that can help me or that I can call to talk me through what I need to do. I have purchased a domain name and hosting with GoDaddy, they suggested I contact you. Right now I am ready to delete the site and start over if I can’t get total control of my own site. We combined the original wordpress site with the domain name of
