    [Entire post and topic decapped - please do not use all caps]

    Hello, im using wordpress 3.2.X and template 1381

    at the top of the page on the home page there is a slideshow that displays 4 different pictures with some text shown in the center. Its directly under the header and my business name. I cant figure out how to change the pictures and type my own text in each pictures content area.

    Please someone help me, i am at a stand still trying to figure this out.

    thanks
    jeff

    First off, posting in all caps is considered yelling - please do not do that here -

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#The_Bad_Stuff

    These forums only support themes from here:

    http://wordpress.org/themes/

    So you should contact the vendors of your theme for help with it.

    You should also know that using that old a version of WP is a major security risk.

    Sorry I offended you.

    I purchased this theme 1 week ago from godaddy.com, at the top of my work area theres a help button. The help button leads here, directly here, Im not trying to get free info by leaching off someone else's site. This is directly where I was directed, maybe if WordPress doesn't want to help people who use there product they should take the help button off. You should make that suggestion.

    Now this is a question about WordPress, not the theme. How do I download the latest version of WordPress? Does the version outdate every week or did I just get unlucky? Will I loose all my work if I download a new version? Another WordPress question. How do I use WordPress to change the home page? Can you please tell me what steps to take using WordPress to change the content on my site?

    Thanks again.

    PS How do you whisper on this form? Does that apply to all forms or just this one? Thanks for helping me become an expert in forms.

    Updating WordPress info here:

    If you really are using that old a version, you'll need to use the manual update process.

    If you just started with WP, it's unlikely you are using that old a version.

    A link to your site would be helpful in both the above and the theme you are using. Before we get any further, let's be sure we're talking about the same thing.

    IF GoDaddy is selling themes, they are the ones to ask - it's very clear here that these forums do not support commercial themes -

    This theme is crap, the customer service of template_help.com is nowhere near WP help. Maybe I should have purchased from here. Lesson learned, don't go with cheap because cheap is what you get.

    Thanks for your time.

    Good day.

    That's certainly unfortunate - I'm sorry they aren't doing what they should be doing.

    Maybe I should have purchased from here

    WordPress.ORG doesn't sell anything, but there are a lot of really great, free themes available here:
