A blog is a discussion or informational site consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order. Blogs can be the work of a single individual but more recently "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited and "microblogging" systems help integrate blogs into societal newstreams.

I have not installed WP before and may hire an expert to do so. I also would like it themed.

How many hours to do this on an AWS server? The MySQL DB already exists.

Please give me a rough idea of how many hours of labor to expect.

What do I consider when choosing a theme? Are there free themes?

What advantages are there for paid themes?

What do I consider here?

I have a political website and hope to have a venue which stimulates conversation about the site. I find this important.

I could easily make a blog and use some plug in technology. Suggestions?

What else could I do to promote it?

I will require an email address for a free download, and will offer registrations. In the long run, I will have a nice list. But that's a long time off.

In the short term, I hope to stimulate conversations.

What ideas besides a blog? I can imagine tons of sites being interested in sharing my URL. How do I get other sites to post my URL?

IF I do create a blog, shall I create topic areas? I have never had a blog before. Or do I let guests create topics? Thread?

Any suggestions are welcome.

I have some ideas I would like to share in my IT blog, however I need to improve my skills of writing technical articles. Could you suggest me some tutorials please?
Hi i have imported a a site from mod x yesterday and i couldnt get it imported properly so  i manually copied accross the posts/articles

Is there a way to add an avator to my blog posts?  I am using wordpress with the genesis theme.
How do I add an avator using this theme?

I created a bunch of blog posts.  How do I attach them to the blog page? My layout is full width. I am using studiopress's Parallax theme.
I have updated the tagline on my wordpress site, but the changes are not updating in a google search.  I tried the "save changes" button, but that does not publish the change. Is there an update/publish button somewhere that I am not finding?
I have a account and recently made my blog private. I have some subscribers to my blog (before making it private) but from what I see, making a blog private, a user must have a role of Viewer and be logged into their account to view my blog. Is that correct?

Most of my email subscribers do not have a account. If I create a post, would those subscribers still be able to view the full post via the email they receive (not an excerpt but the full post) and can they comment on my post within their email? In other words, I don't want to force my email subscribers to have to get a account to view my posts. since they are email subscribers, if they can view my posts and comment on them (if they wish to) via the email of the post, then that would be most ideal.

Any ideas?
Hi EE experts!

We would like to ask for technical support on how to clear or delete the location on facebook, what we want to happen is to remove one location then it will be gone automatically from every post that was used that location. Is it possible?
Because we would to clear the post on this site:

And how to get inside of that "pages"? Because we want clear that page was created by we don't know who and how... We noticed that every person who post anything and use our company name as location and set that post be seen by Public, it will show on that page too... How can we stop that? Because we have our real fanpage and not that one that show on google everytime you search our company name + facebook...
Hello Experts,

I am struggling to add a hyperlink to the title of the sidebar widgets in wordpress.

I have wordpress 4.2.3 installed. The plug-ins i tried were not compatible with this version of WP so they didn't work.

Is there any way to accomplish this?  I read many posts related to this but the information was very confusing. Most of the articles suggested code changes but they didn't mention what files to edit.

I am looking for a simple step-by-step approach to achieve this.

Your help is very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Best Regards
Hi Guys,

I was wondering is there a way instead of getting publishers to resize the image each time there was a function that resized the image everytime we published a blog post in wordpress?

As you can see here at everytime someone uploads a blog post and the image is a different size, it throws the whole section off, i think the ideal size is 550 x 300?

Thanks guys
Hello and Good Morning Everyone

             I remember reading from different sources that it is possible to generate $1000 a month using 15 different blogs with at least 10 articles within each blog by using Google Adsense.  Realizing all of the hype given to internet marketing these days, it is often difficult to separate out real stories from the too good to be true scenarios.  At any rate, what does everyone else think on this topic?  I gather that it is indeed possible to generate revenue or a passive income using Google Adsense.  At the same time,  I am under the impression the amount or amounts is not much in the grand scheme of things.

               Any followup given to this question will be greatly appreciated.  

               Thank you

Can anyone recommend sources such as Twitter accounts, Facebook pages, iPhone apps, RSS feeds, etc. that would help someone stay on top of emerging threats, software vulnerabilities, security update/patches, exploits, and information security in general?
What permissions are needed for some to set an alert on a page or blog?  For a page, it seems to be contributor, design or full control.

I have a SharePoint 2013 blog and users with contributor access to the comments can not use the alerts.  The alert option is not visible for users with contributor permissions on comments for blogs.

If I'd like to make the standard user web page w/ user accounts, text-area, text-field, choice-box, drop-down list, radio-button, image, vid upload and other common personalizations, I know Java and PHP, and have done a Godaddy Wordpress blog,
what is there out there for me to get started?

Hi Experts,

I have been meaning to ask this question for quite some time.
I am part of a commitee for a not-for-profit organisation and we have seen that we are always bouncing around ideas at each other and waiting for approvals.
Wondering if there is a PRIVATE discussion platform/blog/software you could suggest whereby we could do the following -

1. Create new topics/discussions from time to time
2. When matters are those that require a vote, we get alll members to vote using this system
3. Document procedures and meeting minutes for safe keeping.
4. All info must be PRIVATE and not made PUBLIC.

What could you suggest?
I am happy with Wordpress plugins if someone can suggest an appropriate one
All EE WordPress experts,

I have an existing website at that was created with a website creation tool called Trellix on Earthlink web hosting service. I want to replace it with a WordPress created website. Earthlink provides WordPress with MySQL as an installable option, which I have already done, along with others like Joomla or EasySiteOptimizer. I want to continue using Earthlink. I plan to retain most of the content now on Pretty much page for page with some additional pages that I have in mind. The pages will just look more professional. My motivation is that I want to make the website look more professional, and I want to add blog functionality. I want all of my blog posts listed in a table on a single web page with selectable by drop down list of categories including "All" and "General"; Date of posts as YYYY-MM-DD; and the post titles. I want users to be able to "post" and "comment" with my approval. I want users to be able to double click the title or date and have the post with comments open up in another browser tab. Of course I will be moderating the posts and comments. At a local WordPress user group meeting somebody suggested that I just use Genesis. If that really is my best option, I'll use it. I don't plan to build websites for anybody else but myself. I know that Genesis is a great tool for those who make a living by building websites for others. But I suspect it may be overkill for what I want to…

I am no longer doing one of my blogs.
It had spam blockers and other billings associated, maybe.
It is in a Godaddy space.
How do I know if I'm being charged for things like this, and remove them all?

Hi All - I need to add a blog to Computer Services and was trying to get some advice one what I should use to create this and what works best as this will be my first one.
At first time posts were chown on goggle, but dont know why posts stopped showed on goggle. Do I have to change some setting inside WP configurartion?
Is possible to solve this issue for free?
