Support » Fixing WordPress » Help with Plugins, Optimization and Links

  • There are several things I am trying to do but I do not know how to do them. First, I want add plugins. I activated countdown, for example. But it doesn’t appear in the sidebar. I also tried it with the weather plugin but it didn’t appear either. Can someone please explain how to use plugins? Second, in this site ,, the author has links at the top that go to different pages in the website, but with the same theme still there. What I am trying to say is, how do you create pages without posts? Sorry if I am asking too many questions, but I am just really excited about my discovery of wordpress. My site link is for now. Thank you for everything.

  • I don’t know about countdown, but for the weather plugins, you have to add a php call to the sidebar. Most all plugins you download have a readme file with explicit instructions as to how to make them work. You can edit your sidebar.php file in the theme editor:
    admin -> presentation -> theme editor

    To create pages, simply go to:
    admin -> write -> write pages

    Wow, that’s incredibly easy. Well, at least the page part is. I try to do work with the plugins now. Thanks a lot!
