I am using fatcow to make a wordpress site, but i just came across 1&1.com. And then i think i also signed up with Greengeeks and gatorguru or something like that.. i am getting very mixed up especially since i have something along the line of ADD...so i am terribly disorganized. I am better as an illustrator and that is where i will focus after i finish this non profit project for someone and create a few advocacy health sites i am interested in owning.... But do any of these sites do everything where i don't have to? I mean i will design the look of the sites and decide what i want, but someone else puts them together in a way that they run themselves except if i want to ad text or edit text. Will any host or service manage and make it circulate on the internet somehow? Or is this area getting fine tuned as we speak? Sites that don't make income end up having to be paid for by the owner and some people just have them for hobbies which is what i want to do with a few i create. AS i think it is as such for the majority of the population that has something to say... SO everyone wants the same thing? A site that runs itself if it does not make profit i assume.
I would stick with Fatcow (your domain and website host)
And keep using WordPress
If you would like a custom theme I would suggest buying one at http://themeforest.com
The themes listed on themeforest have special addons and different looks than the ones available for free
And the cost of buying a theme is less than hosting with 1&1 for half a year
I will do that once i have the basics sorted out such as how many navigation pages or none at all and just have the contents written on a slideshow... I also have an urge to use my artwork in the background which i have, but half of it got chopped off...So i figure i will at least play around with themes for a while to get familiar with the lingo...
i barely know what a header and footer are.....
That is why I was linking to documentation so you could learn the basics and what it takes to code these pages
I think i should at least know how things are set up in case i do in fact have a good idea fora health blog and people end up contacting me....
so in the long run once you know the code you can focus on developing just the art
yes thank you... i peaked at some....a little at a time....
But based on what you want to do I would just pick a theme and then use a plugin to get the gallery showing correctly
and then build from there
If you decide to switch themes your content will still be there it will just change to match the new theme
So are you saying that i should pay for one on forest and it will have all the right items from the start?
The content is still not even figured out yet.....
Im saying use the default theme
Maybe put in a gallery
but get a basic website up and some content
and then design a theme
or buy a theme
something that matches the content you haven't yet thought up
Default in wordpress?
the light grey page that says HELLO WORLD?
The default theme in wordpress is twentytwelve
Its grey and boring
however every post you make gives it more content
i got the grey part right... but yes i remember now
and will start to make you consider what the look and feel you want of the website
If you already know what you want I suggest going to themeforest.com
and look at the wordpress themes for one that matches the look you want
But i don't need a post... it will be a fixed site that won't change.
Do you have the content created that isnt going to change?
If you do then its up to you to find a theme or design one
If you dont then create the content first before the website look
is what I am getting at
this particular one i need might change as far as look until my friend is satisfied but he doesn't know what he wants...but the content is almost done and is getting tweaked now and then as we see it uploaded
i wanted to show him differnt looks and my intuition says a slideshow might work best...
But with text inside
a fast slideshow
I saw a tutorial about how to add slideshow into wordpress but it is added into responsive theme.... Is responsive a better theme to use than Twenty Twelve? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W3GLGWbZ38
Responsive is fine also
if that is the look you want
I had responsive created by someone that was tutoring me and i did not pay the renewal and it is gone.....It was a missunderstanding
So i have to create it all over again.
I think it was responsive because it looked like it.
But i don't think i want it anymore....and i can always try to create it again. But at the moment i want to keep it simpler and fixed not like a blog but a website.
Website with the message in a slideshow that the user does not have to click on anything. And that has a fundraiser bumper sticker to sell and a calculator about idling. I think you gave me a list of calculators once upon a time last year...not sure. but it wasn't for idling personal automobiles. That will be another question...
error; for personal cars NOT fleets
If the responsive theme I linked to looks like something you could use I would say try it
If not I would check the wordpress themes for one that fits what you want, if you cant find one for free check themeforest.com
If it needs a slideshow use the plugins I linked to
I see one of the sites i have looks like the responsive one but i can't seem to see where the name responsive is in the dashboard anywhere. How can i tell if it is responsive theme? Where do i look?
Hi,, in regards XXXXX XXXXX themes... Is Twenty Eleven Responsive now? It did not load as a grey and boring site as you mentioned above.. It is quite 70's hippy looking,,,,,,Also in regards XXXXX XXXXX sites....I have looked at Modernization and Pro slider and Zenon and i realize that the images that i load into the slider don't really display properly on my iphone....the slider image is cut in half when i turn my iphone horizontally.... So does that mean it is a flaw in the responsive ness of the theme? Is there any drag and drop east web building site that i can describe what i want and a drag and drop site is easy to choose for myself with all the features i want?.Since responsive isn;t really that responsive
