Novice Needs Help - Please! (5 posts)

    Anyone available to help a total novice just setting up a first blog, and stumbling as she goes. Two really basic issues and two questions I can't figure out. 1) How can I remove a post that went into the wrong category? I somehow put it in two categories and it should be in only the one I want it in. (Do I set up all categories first and then assign posts to them?) 2) I can't get an image in the post - I don't know how to find the URL. I resized and saved the image to my desktop and can see tht it's in the library but following the steps it doesn't show up in my blog. The questions - if I put a link in my text, does the reader who clicks on the link come back to my page automatically when the link is closed? (I guess, otherwise why would one want to use them???) Any suggestions for clearer info/beginning user's "manual" on troubleshooting that I should be aware of?

    Thank you so much. I really want to get this right.

    The docs aka codex have pretty much anything you can think of in them and you can also search the link to docs in the top navigation here. Here is a place to get started.

    Jeremy - thanks for the reply, but now I'm getting really scared! My website designer set up the template for my blog for a fee. I don't know html. Am I going to be able to function with this blog without it?

    Yes you can, thousands of people do. I imagine along the way you'll pick up bits and pieces as well.

    That's a relief. Thanks, Jeremy. I appreciate your thoughts.
