  • Hi Mike,

    Sorry you had to go through all of that. Ouchhh! That looked painful. I know those who replied did their best to address your question – but they simply don’t understand the angle from which you were trying to obtain an answer. You are not a programmer – don’t try to recreate the wheel (as suggested) instead “alter” the wheel…

    Here’s what you do –

    Go into your dashboard, and into the “appearance” area. You want to look towards the bottom under appearance and you will see “editor.” When you select it, it will take you to an area where you will see “code” in front of you. Off to the right, you will see a variety of options like this:

    Templates

    * 404 Template
    (404.php)
    * Category Template
    (category.php)
    * Comments
    (comments.php)
    * Footer
    (footer.php)
    * Header
    (header.php)
    * Homepage Page Template (**** Mike – select this option)
    (homepage.php)

    Then, simply do a standard (crtl + F) “find” and you want to locate the words “recent work”

    Once there, you can change it to what you want
    But you may need to enter “spaces” between titlings
    Example if you wanted it to say:

    Education WHS Broadcast Teacher tech (across the top of that “line”)

    you will need to enter space “& n b s p ;” (in html code that equals one space)(I had to put my own space between the “&” and the “n” and the “b” and the “s” and the “p” and the “;” because when I ran them together, wordpressdotorg showed them as “blank”.. so run all 5 symbols and letters together and it will create a “space” between words. So remove the spaces between & n b s p ; run it all together. This made a hell of a lot more sense, until I noticed this issue when saving my post…

    so you might then enter (this is an example, you’ll need to play with it):

    Education    & n b s p ; & n b s p ; & n b s p ;   WHS Broadcast     & n b s p ; & n b s p ;  & n b s p ; & n b s p ; teacher tech

    Based on the amount of   you have, it will govern the number of continuous spaces, and therefore distance between your titles

    Don’t be afraid to play with it. But before you “play with it, copy the “code” for “Homepage Page Template” first – paste it into a wordpad to save it’s original state. In case you make a mistake, you can simply paste the original code back in. Make sure your “update” your changes, and see how they look.

    It does work, that is how I changed mine, and I saw your site (of course)

    Mike,

    you will see this (I’m only showing the row “above,” the row with “recent work,” and the row “below”). Just to “illuminate” the area you’ll be focusing on……

    </div>
    <h2>Recent Work</h2>
    <div class=”row”>

    You’ll change it to something like this;

    </div>
    <h2>Education & n b s p ; & n b s p ; & n b s p ; WHS Broadcast & n b s p ; & n b s p ; & n b s p ; & n b s p ; teacher tech</h2>
    <div class=”row”>

    Except, again, take out the spaces between each occurrence of “& n b s p ;” and run all 6 of those characters/symbols together. To give you a sense of what I mean, between “education” and “WHS Broadcast” all those “& n b s p ;” which there are three sets of, represent three spaces, once saved or updated look at your site, and you will see the changes….

    Mike – you are only changing what resides between <h2>Recent Work</h2>
    in other words just what is to the right of <h2>, and to the left of </h2> which of course are the words “recent work.”

    Dan

    GOT IT! Thanks everyone!

    Dano, yeah I knew HOW to do it, I just couldn’t find that stinkin’ area to save my life! (usually in the styles.css) I’m definitely not a programmer or coding expert by any means, so I’m grateful for the assistance!

    Hey everyone…another hopefully simple editor question:

    I’ve made some nice progress…now I’m wondering how to get the widget info on the right hand side to show up a bit cleaner. I figured out how to adjust the text size, but I don’t like how there is so much space between the name (for instance, Social Media) and then A TON OF SPACE and then the images/links…same for the other titles too obviously.

    It looks clunky and while I’d like some separation between each widget, I’d like the titles and info for each widget to be grouped closer to one another.

    Make sense? This has got to be easy?!
