I’d like to change a few things on my Blog

  • First is how I can change “no comments” to “comments”. My friends think nobody has responded to the blog. Second, am I the only one who can create the new blog topic? Are bloggers allowed to do so? How can I change my blog roll from the defaults?

    Thanks to all in advance from new blogger 🙂

  • This is a good start to understanding WP:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Working_with_WordPress

    I call your attention particular to the following topics there:

    User and Author Features

    * What Registered Users Can Do
    * Roles and Capabilities (WP 2.0+)

    Administration Features

    * Discussion options
    * Using the Links Manager
    * FAQ Working with WordPress

    This should help you out. Once you’ve read over the above topics, hopefully you will have a better understanding of how WP works, how to set up users so that they can post to your site, how to manage comments, how to manage the WP Links section — which is very powerful.

    HTH.

    After reading and learning config, I’ve got everything but the user admin privs. I’m trying to give users priviliges as far as the levels are concerned. ie. 1-2-3- etc. However, I don’t have a “Level’s” column in the “Authors and Users” section of Admin>Users of the admin panel. Do I need to insert a plugin? I want my users to be able to register automatically and add comments without me having to moderate every new comment. However, I don’t want them to be able to do any editing or admin of the blog site. My site is private and only accessible by word of mouth. I don’t have it searchable for the general public, (don’t need spammers, or hackers).

    Thanks

    Did you find this page? Roles_and_Capabilities
    Hopefully that’ll help explain it (“levels” were from the earlier versions).
