Support » Fixing WordPress » Making theme stay on banner; beginner questions

  • I am totally new to blogs and have inherited administration of our not-for-profit’s site. I have searched for answers in several places and can’t find solutions.

    The site has an established banner theme with a photo. Upon upgrading to 2.3.1 the banner reverted to the default Word Press theme. I can go to presentation and click on our banner theme to get it back, but that is a temporary solution. Upon signing off the theme is lost again. How can I make it stay?

    Also, I’m confused about when to write a post and when to write a page. I want our newsletters to appear one after (or before) another for the year before archiving; also want one-shot stories that will be archived when they are no longer relevant. Also don’t understand how to make multiple pages within a category. Do I need to type separate posts or pages when I run out of room on one?

    Am having trouble uploading pictures. Would like multiple pictures of an item in the article (page or post). I seem to only get one and it is accompanied by it’s file name and path to it. I just want pictures.

    Okay – that’s a few questions! 🙂 I don’t know why the banner defaults once you log out. But maybe I can point you to some resources that will clear up what you have volunteered to do!
    The idea behind “blogging” is here. That will explain what archives are, and when your posts are archived. It will also answer questions about feeds, linkbacks, how to manage links, and subscribers.

    This link here explains the difference between pages and posts. And gives a brief introduction to pages.

    If you go to the codex, it will give you lots of ‘tables of contents’s to search through for the topic that has you stumped!

    Good luck, and have fun!

    Thanks. I’ve seen that info and will study it more diligently. I don’t think it will answer the disappearing theme, however. Still need help with that one.
