I would very much appreciate any specific help or insight any of your WordPress experts might offer on the following:
I use WordPress 1.5x. My site is:
I use the "Connections" theme.
-Where exactly do I change my archiving from monthly to weekly?
-How can I change the default style for my blockquotes tag so it is indented but not italicized?
-Where is the best place to place html for the side bar additions, specifically, a small image and some text? In the Stylesheet? If so, where? And if in the HTML main index template, where?
-Does anyone know why Mac OSX 10.2's Safari does not load WordPress pages properly?
-Where are the images for the sidebar stored? I would like to alter them and have not found them?
-On my page posts with no comments say, "No Comments". To me, this could be interpretted as not allowing comments. Is it possible to alter that text to say "0 comments so far" or "No Comments Yet"? If so, where do I change that text? I have searched and searched and can find no clear spot for at alteration.
-In the Connections theme each post is separated by a fancy tilde sort thing bewteen them. There is also a thin line beneath the title of the post. I am thinking of adding a fatter version of the that line above the title to set each post off a little more. Where would I add the code for that? Would it be code or would I need to create a graphic? As an alternative, could I just use the thin line beneath the title and replicate it above the title as well?
-In Connections there is a cool (well, I like it a lot) box to the left of each post title that displays the date. Is there was a way to add the post time to that box to more specifically identify each post? If so, where do I do that?
-Inthe Connections theme are a series of links built into the header labelled : Home, About, Archives, Links, Contact. My links are not active. Obviously I need to to do something to them. As well, I would alter some of them to suit the purposes of the site. Where do I find the code for these?
-Connections has the user put in a "tagline" that is a subheading under the blog name. It also appears in a box at the top of the sidebar called "about this site". I would very much like to change the text in the "about this site" box to be different than the tagline but try as I might, I cannot find where that can be changed? Any help and is there a way to not use the same text in the subheading?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH to anyone who takes the time to answer what are probably fairly simple-minded questions. I've spent some hours readinjg through the Codex and here on this forum and have found a lot of answers to questions I've had but these still seem to evade me. And while I am trying, dilligently, to learn CSS (because I think that's really the base issue here) it's time consuming and I'm not all that great with code.
I've asked one question in here before and was amazed at the immediate, high quality and very helpful response. I am hoping to get that lucky one more time. Any help you can provide would be very much appreciated.
Thank you again.
