Support » Theme: Dara » My apologies

  • I’ve started a few, only to solve them myself, after some looking. I’m very sorry for wasting bandwidth, and time, for my posts. I’ve learned how to best-look for more information, and I promise that I’ll always do that before posting another question.

  • Hi there,

    No need to apologize, we’re always happy to help 🙂

    I’m going to do the right thing for this group, and do what I need the right way. However, I’m not too sure where that is. Can someone please point me the right direction on where to go, so I can install the Dara theme there? I’m sure I have an account there, but I don’t know where “there” is!
    Thank you!

    To install that theme go to your Dashboard > Appearance > Themes click on the Add New button at the top of the page and then search for “Dara” in the search box below. Then click on Install and when the theme is installed click on Activate and you’re done.

    Sorry, I wrote what I’d asked for wrong. I know how to install a theme, but what I was asking for is more fundamental than that. What I was asking about was where is the at-Wordpress site is a domain that’s where this thread is associated with. I’d posted questions, about a self-hosted one, and learned that this is supposed to be for sites hosted by WordPress – but I don’t know where to set one up!!

    I’m sorry, but I’m not following you. What exactly are you looking for?

    When I first posted here, I’d referenced my site (http://braininjuryawareness.ca/), but was told that on this site is supposed to be about domains hosted by WordPress. I didn’t know where that was, or how, and tried to ask. Basically, what I think it is is something like: http://NameIMade.wordpress.com/ or some other domain like that.
    I don’t know where!

    Hmmmm.

    Yes, there’s 2 versions of WordPress. And, each version has a dedicated support forum.

    The forum we’re in now is for help with the Dara Theme. Do you need help with Dara?

    WordPress.com is a managed hosting environment. That forum is at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/ A list of your activity in that forum can be found with this URL: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/users/lizkarkoski/ You’ll have to replace my lizkarkoski with your own WordPress.com username.

    From that view you can find anything you’ve posted in that forum.

    The other version of WordPress is the open source installation. Help for that comes from the volunteers at https://wordpress.org/support/forums/

    More about the differences can be found on this page:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    The last thing I want to mention is that your WordPress.com and WordPress.org accounts are unrelated. They require their own, unique logins.

    The more that I do, the more I learn, and the more questions I have! But, rather than guessing (likely wrong), I’ll describe my situation, and ask for your help in what I should do.

    I’ve got a domain (http://neverstopfoundationtest.ca/) that’s running WordPress, using the Dara theme. The domain that it’ll be is in transition from Squarespace, so it’s not it. What I’ve found is that the Dara theme is best for what I’d like, but I’m only a year in with WordPress, so not an expert. What I’d like is for a place that I can ask questions, and help where I can. I started here, but soon learned that a self-hosted domain isn’t what this is geared towards. That was why I’d asked about where I can have one run, that would “qualify” my questions here.

    Thank you for understanding!

    Hi @robertwein,

    I’ve got a domain (http://neverstopfoundationtest.ca/) that’s running WordPress, using the Dara theme.

    Thanks for sharing the domain. neverstopfoundationtest.ca uses WordPress.org software (rather than WordPress.com), so you are posting for help in the right area.

    What I’d like is for a place that I can ask questions, and help where I can.

    This forum is the best place to post if you have questions about the Dara theme specifically.

    If you are looking for general advice about using WordPress and configuring your site, one of these forums would be better:

    https://wordpress.org/support/

    There are plenty of different forums to choose from depending on which aspect of WordPress you need advice on.

    but soon learned that a self-hosted domain isn’t what this is geared towards. That was why I’d asked about where I can have one run

    Do you mean you want to create a site where the hosting is managed for you (and doesn’t need to maintained by you)? I just want to make sure I’ve understood correctly.
