asking for help with my website (9 posts)

    I am a wordpress novice. My website is therightfood.net. I am looking to make my "about" page be my "home page" and put my posts on other pages. I am also looking to create a calendar to post upcoming courses and events. I welcome any suggestions and resources that can help me improve upon my site.

    Thanks.

    Go to Settings-> Reading in your WordPress dashboard.

    Choose A Static page for your front page displays. Your About page will be the front page.

    To list your events, use

    Will I lose the posts that are already on the front page when I choose a static page for the front page? If I will, how can I retain those posts?

    No you will not lose those posts.

    They will move to whatever page you choose for your blog page.

    I would also suggest taking a look at the All in One Event Calendar for the events. It's the most full featured event calendar I have found. It's far from perfect, but it's pretty good.

    Thank you for your help. I built this site using WordPress 3.1.4. If I upgrade to 3.4.1, would it be simple for me to upgrage Akismet and Jetpack?

    Yes it would be quite simple. Make sure you create a backup before you run the upgrade though. Both of those plugins will update easily through the built in updater.

    What would be the best way to backup using WordPress 3.1.4? A book I have mentions WP-DB-Backup plugin. Can I use that?

    Where can I view a collection of blog layouts and information about what is effective and what is not? Thank you all for your generous and quick responses.

    Yes, you can use WP-DB-Backup plugin . It backs up only your database. If your hosting has cPanel, then you can do full backup from there. Or you can use FTP / file manager to save a copy of wp-content folder.

    You can check various WordPress themes at

    Please ask only one issue in one thread. Thanks.
