    Hi I’m new to blogging and to wordpress so I’m sure my questions are going to be very novice, so bear with me.

    1. I notice that initially there is a menu (I think) that says About. How do I add to that (menu list?) items such as Home, Contact, etc.

    2. Can I change the size of the Post Header?

    3. I can’t find where the sticky post text is being displayed or why not?

    The blog I need help with is: thewarinsidebook.wordpress.com

    Hi there!

    1. Be sure to read through this tutorial about creating a custom menu. Specifically the section about adding pages.

    2. Yes, to change your post header font-size, you’ll need the Custom Design upgrade.

    3. To see the post banner, you’ll need to mark your post as Sticky. You can edit the sticky post title by going to your Appearance → Theme Options page. Under Post display, edit Sticky post text.

    I hope this helps :)

    HI,
    Thanks well I figured out 1 and I suspected 2 as far as 3 is concerned I’ve seen this option and it states that if the text box is empty then nothing shows but if it has text in it then it shows. Well I put text in that box, saved it and it doesn’t show on the main post page under the title and above the author name where I think it should. What am I missing?

    Also in the process of creating an about page I’m typing 3 paragraphs of text and I’m trying to create a single line bolded (which I have done) but I’m trying to put a space between that bold line and the next block of text and I can’t figure it out. What is the symbol for a paragraph mark or whatever would create a space?

    Hi again :)

    1. To confirm, are you referring to the colored banner below your post title? I’ve requested access to your site, so I can take a look.

    2. You may like to try using the break tag element. To add this tag, switch to the Text editor mode.

    Hi,
    Yes I’m talking about the color banner below the post title. As far as the paragraph break I have had no success.
    doesn’t work <p> doesn’t work </p> doesn’t and finally <p> </p> doesn’t either. In any case I will not obsess over it and I just use a ‘-‘ for now that does the trick. I’ll allow access for help with #1.

    Hi again :)

    Yes, I would like access to your site, so I can take a look at this problem.

    With regard to your second question about paragraph breaks, could you please open this in a new topic? This helps us to keep the forums organized.

    Thanks!

    Hi again :)

    Thanks for providing me access. It looks like your post isn’t marked Sticky. Please try publishing several other test posts; then, mark your selected post as Sticky.

    Please let me know if I’m misunderstanding the problem.
