    using a template that uploaded fine but can't edit this page - can't see where to do it anywhere
    on a similar note - on 'pages' I typed a new file for 'About' but it doesn't update anywhere.
    I am a novice and would have no earthly idea if u respond with all the code talk.
    I'm a mac (dummy) about all that stuff and only know point and click.
    can anyone help please

    For the Welcome to our site, go to Admin->Appearnce->Widgets. Drag and drop a Text widget into Area 1. Type in the title and text you would like in that spot, or insert an image in the text box.

    Still trying to work on the about question. Will post again when/if I find something.

    To edit the "Welcome to our site" text, you'll have to edit the theme. From the admin, navigate to Appearance > Editor. From there, you will have to find which theme file has the text (go through the files on the left hand side; it's likely in "Main Index Template - index.php) and change it to whatever you want (note: you'll likely need some familiarity with HTML to be able to do so).

    As for the "about" page issue, make sure your "WordPress address" and "Blog Address" under Settings > General are both set to http://blog.privatecigarbrands.com

    Ah, sorry; didn't know that the theme was using widgets for the "about" box. Glad you were able to resolve the issue though :)
