    Hello Staff
    Is this challenge only for wp.com users? :(
    I am a wp.org user.

    Here is my ‘About’ page that I updated last week with two sections:
    Who am I and Why am I here. Feedback please. Thanks

    @secretsanta605 – The split-About works well but I think each should have a link to the other. Perhaps at the bottom of the “Who am I” have a larger centered “Why am I Here” and visa-verse.

    A good few days out of sync, work took precedence. However, Day 8 covered: Laidig’s Broadway. Still working on getting a more malleable theme, though.

    Ok…finally finished this one. (yes, it’s a little late…) I wonder if it’s too wordy? Also, I couldn’t figure out a way to put 3 thumbnail size pictures next to each other on the same line. Is this possible?
    Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!

    @kellicos – try using a Photo Gallery and choosing either Thumbnails or even Tiled Mosaic and see if that works for how you want them laid out. In the WordPress editor, click Add Media, then on the left choose Create Gallery. It will let you choose pictures from your Media Library that are already uploaded, or choose from your computer and upload for the Gallery. After you choose your pictures and select OK, you will have the chance to choose what type of Gallery on the right side dropdown box. You can also add captions and titles to the images. Some Gallery types use only the captions, others use both.

    Check out my About Page and you will see that is how I placed 2 images side-by-side, with captions.

    @robmikemom. Thanks for the tips. Yes, I looked at your page, and that is exactly what I was wanting. So I will try it! Seems like a great tool.

    ‘By George I think she’s got it’ Well not quite, but I am getting there. This challenge was hard, as like so many others I don’t like talking about myself, my opinions and interests yes, me no. I found this challenge quite late so am rushing to catch up, which is probably not smart. But what a great way to learn.
