Your theme’s fonts

Your theme fonts

Your theme fonts

To ascertain the fonts that your theme adapts to best, you need to do a style sheet reference.

Once you know what fonts are specified in your theme’s Stylesheet, you can use these same fonts when preparing text content for your posts.

First open up a blank Notepad page. We will come back to it soon.

Log into your WordPress dashboard. In the left hand column, click on “Editor” under “Appearances”.

HTML in Google Docs

There is quite a bit to learn about using Google Docs, but for the time being here’s some input on how to use Google Docs in terms of its editing features.

Google Docs editing can be done in two ways: in the plain text mode or in the HTML mode.

The latest version of Google Docs does not offer you the default option of switching to the HTML mode of the page you are typing. Please don’t get confused by the preceding sentence. The illustrations below should clarify it.

I recommend you do content creation with HTML in Google Docs. You could also try HTML in Notepad. Both are open source HTML editor programs.

I don’t know if anyone actually types in posts into the “Add New Page” window in WordPress. Like me, I presume pretty much every one has the post already typed up elsewhere and simply copies and pastes it into WordPress. This is what I recommend you do, too.

An introduction to HTML

What is this strange acronym HTML everybody is talking about, and what does the acronym stand for?

Let’s fall back on my favorite source, the formidable Wikipedia for an introduction to HTML and for some ideas on how to use HTML.

HTML, which stands for HyperText Markup Language, is the predominant markup language for web pages. A markup language is a set of markup tags, and HTML uses markup tags to describe web pages.

Dealing with blog comments

Make your comments

Make your comments

In the previous post, you were told about the importance of approving of and retaining constructive comments on your blog. You were also advised to get rid of undesirable comments. You have to set up an effective blog comment system.

Every time people add comments to your blog, WordPress sends you a confirmatory email, in which you are asked to approve or spam or delete the comments. WordPress’ email will contain links for each action, and all you need to do is click on the link against the action you want to take: approve, spam or delete. The link will take you to your WordPress sign in page, and when you have signed in, to the particular comment you want to take action on.
