    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to migrate content from http://www.dnicostarica.org to a Word Press format to make it easier for the office to make future updates. It is my first day playing around with WP, and I am pretty happy with the results so far:


    I have three signifigant problems.

    1. I want to turn off the comments on the pages.
    2. I would like to be able to organize posts so that they fall under Parent pages. I'm not quite sure if I'm using the right terminology, but basically I want to be able to make a post and it not necesarily fall under the first page. It would be nice to organize them by the pages shown on top.
    3. The page is in Spanish, and I really like the way that it displays the dates of the posts, if only it were in Spanish! Does anyone know how to change this?

    1. You need a Page template (default = page.php) to display Pages.

    2. You can not. Pages are Pages and posts are posts. Do not mix them if you want to keep your sanity... ;)
    For posts - use Categories!

    3. Most of the themes have hard coded the date format in their templates (index, single, archives etc.) - Also look for a file locale.php in the wp-includes folder, if you want to translate only the months.

    3a. You may want to consider to install the Spanish .mo file to have the backend in your language and/or to translate the theme.

    Thanks for the tips. I think I'm on the right track now. The only thing that I would love to know more about, is turning off comments on "pages". Comments on posts are fine by me.
