Platform Theme Choice? (4 posts)

    I am a NEWBIE digging into wordpress.

    I'm at the point where I am looking at Themes, free mostly. Did view some paid options, but not using that.
    I am trying to work with Platform. Not sure if that is a good idea or not, but with so many choices, i really wasn't sure where to begin with a theme.
    I also downloaded Suffusion and i have 10 week, or something like that.

    So, I'm t-r-ying to move around in Plaform and am able to do some things, but I dont know how to make the site active. Not published, but an active working site.
    How do I do that?

    What makes you think that the site isn't active?

    LOL! I like your username!

    I think I'm not explaining it well enough.
    The site is active, when I type in my address, there it is.

    But the things I have started with designing the site is not showing up there, or on a "working site". From what little experience I have had with website work, when I am logged into a person's site, i'm in the working part of the site, and when I make changes to the site, I can see it there on the working site, and then when I'm ready I "publish" those changes.
    Well, I can't find the "working site". All I can find is the menu of platform, and then the different settings I can change. I make those changes, but where can I view it?
    And when I press the "view it" link, I just get a default page.
    Does that make sense?
