I eventually want a video board with OTA HDTV tuner and HDMI out.
I am resorting to HTML to create padding between the picture and the text. I used html styles to get a 40 px space to the right of the picture, but not on the left. I put a 10 px padding underneath, too. I hope I can figure a way to hard code this that won’t take too much extra time. I chose 230 px for the width of the photo because with 40 px padding it takes up about one half of the container width. I think 40 px is about the space between the body and sidebar, too. I know, Pearson uses ems in his CSS but I don’t grock ems yet.
Thanks to Pearsons Tubetorial I now have URLs that contain my postname. In the dashboard go to options then permalinks and select custom. In the box type /%postname%/ and click the lower right update button. I did not need to change my .htaccess. I could not figure how but I think it work without it.
I am going on my fourth day trying to get the Cutline theme into my WordPress dashboard. It continually says there is no style.css folder. I first thought I had it figured out when my WinZip program unzipped Cutline with empty files so I downloaded another unzip program which successfully unzipped the files. I did successfully load another theme so I think I am doing everything correctly (although that one had a file called installer)
this is a test to see if this post URL contains the title of this post.
I used the photo insert icon to input the URL of the previous post thumbnail image and selected align = right. I still need to figure how to enlarge the thumbnail. Resizing it by dragging a corner hook results in a blurred image. The image also needs some whitespace between it and the text (border?)
I used the upload tool, selected thumbnail with link, and dragged it into the “write post” box. Next, I want a larger thumbnail and for the text to wrap around the picture, and maybe have it on the right side.
