How do I find the sourcecode that I can edit? View>Source is just for viewing.

    I want to be able to “collapse” my lists on my website. Apparently, I need to edit the source code. Where do I find it? View>Source is just for viewing. Do I need to buy an upgrade to be able to edit this?

    The blog I need help with is



    I need to edit the source code. I need to edit the source code. …

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. read the full entry here … vs.


    Thanks, for the reply. I may go and get hosting.
    One more question about this.

    Does wordpress offer me any way to “collapse” my lists on my sidebar?



    Some lists have drop down menus that expand outward. Category widgets in certain themes, for example.

    Looking at your site makes me wonder if you understand how the blogging platform works.

    What you have in your sidebar are links to pages.

    You don’t have posts.

    But apparently you are trying to make the pages interactive, so that if a reader answers a question you want to record that, and then a reader answers questions b,c,d,e and so on the answers will be compiled.

    Quote from you:
    Improve your online dating profile. Fix the whole thing, right here.

    Just use the buttons on the left panel to “write” a profile, tailored to YOU.

    I don’t know any way to make that work here on


    Thanks, 1tess, for taking the time to reply.
    Yes, it’s not a blog.
    I am trying to collapse the links on the sidebar. I think you are right, it seems I can’t do that here on

    Yes, I think you need to investigate other options than wordpress. What you want is some sort of interactive form for your readers to fill out. Maybe wp.ORG has a plugin you could use.
