Questions I Have About Doing WP

 

I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to problem solve using the tools that companies – open source or otherwise – give their customers to take care of their products.  My problems never fit within the normal range – ask Steve Woods,a tech expert at TCOE, who cringes to see me coming.  (I’m taking his Photoshop class tonight – get ready Steve.)

So I am still trying to check out why I’m being so spammy, because I responded to several sites from my reader, and my comments after the posting sign finished, the comment disappeared. I have posted on that site many times!!!  I went to a WordPress forum.  I get distracted on that website when I notice that lots of people have listed their websites for the WP folks to go visit.  Then they type a problem they are having in the subject line.  I think I’ll do that.  But first you have to answer questions and fill in forms.  One of the first questions you have to answer is, “What version of WordPress are you using?”  How would I know that?  I have looked on every page in my menu, and there is nothing about versions.  So I resigned that for now.

Next, I saw that there are WordPress camps around the world where you can go learn about WordPress.  That was cool.  The ones on the west coast were in August ad September.  I think I’ll wait for the Paris trip.

Accidentally I saw a way to get your site maximized on google searches.  You had to verify your site by placing the google meta code on your home page.  So I opened up my pages in the dashboard, and the home page didn’t show in the menu.  Then I went to the menu, and clicked home, and it still didn’t show.  The google instructions were pretty clear as to where to paste the meta thingy, but I couldn’t find my home page in order to paste anything.  Of course, I could go to the home page as an outsider, but that didn’t help me paste the meta code.  The dashboard seems to be synonymous with home page, but I couldn’t find the areas that looked like what was so clearly listed by the Google experts.

The result is that I am totally frustrated which I don’t blame on WP.  I had a similar problem already this morning trying to do online bill paying with B of A.  After explaining it to three customer service representatives, and being disconnected twice, and disconnecting myself after the chatter person didn’t chatter for a long time, I disconnected myself.  So I’m starting my own help page.  I ask the questions.  Someone knowledgable sees them, and writes me a decodable answer.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
