I don’t know why the cursor isn’t static when you get to my title page and header. It changed to the hand. People who will visit my webpage will think that when they click on the header or title page changing the color of the title page at the same time,
it will take them to another site.
It doesn’t. It just refreshes the website.
So what do you recommend to fix it?
I have managed my blog page. So please see if I have done it right.
I’m still waiting for other responses.
The blog I need help with is alabno.wordpress.com.
The title of a site is almost always a link back to the main home page for a website. That way no matter where someone is on your site, they can always get back to the home page. In some themes, the header image can also be a link back to the home page. With the twenty eleven theme since you have the ability to hide the site title and tagline header that is above the header (appearance > header) they have linked the header image as well. That way if the title is hidden, the header image becomes the way back to the home page.
With the header image, title and then a “home” tab in the menu it IS a little overboard though.
From experience, the majority of people on the web know that if you click on a header image or a site title it will virtually always take you back to the home page on the site you are on, not off of the site, and actually I consider linking a header image or a site title to another site to be deceptive. Some do that, but I don’t like it.
I also don’t like it when the header or header image take me away from a site. It’s also strange when I’m at what appears to be a professionally designed site and the logo or corporate header image or whatever don’t lead you back to the main homepage. That can be irritating if I arrive plopped into the middle of their website by a search engine, but then want to look around the site some more — they usually have some other “home” link, but I don’t want to have to look for it.
@alabno: once you have more blog posts and/or more pages, you’ll probably feel that it’s quite helpful to the visitor/user to be able to click your header and go back to your homepage. I thought it looked quite nice so far! Have fun blogging!
I agree, the site is clean and you are doing a nice job of organizing your content.
One other thing, you can easily find the other threads that you have started or have responded to by clicking on your username in the light blue bar at the top of the all forum pages. Just in case you did not know that.
Thank you so much for your help. I did forget to mark the notify option after I’ve written the post. I didn’t know how to look for it.
You are welcome.
