WP novice: I need a lot of help – events, scrolling header, etc.

    Please excuse any inaccurate terms I use, I’m a complete novice at setting up websites.

    I bought this theme because I love the demo, but can’t seem to get my site to look like the demo. You probably can’t see it because it’s directing to our old site (which is good, because what I’ve got here on WP looks horrendous).

    Anyway, the header is scrolling through a bunch of blog posts and they look terrible. I’d like to change it to a static header.

    Also, I finally figured out how to get the events widget set up, but can’t figure out how to add events.

    Again, I apologize for what are likely stupid questions with simple answers, but I’m at a loss and am banging my head against the wall trying to make this work.

    The blog I need help with is highlandgleeclub.com.

    It sounds like most of the things you are looking to do is covered in the theme documentation (linked below). After you have a chance to look over the documentation, let me know if you still have questions.

    Thanks for this info, definitely helpful. This is probably not a soundcheck question, but a month ago when I made updates I was able to see them (even though they didn’t show up on the real Internet). Now when I make changes/post pages/blog posts, it points me to the old website (www.highlandgleeclub.com). That’s the URL we want to use here, and I think we’ve set it up correctly to have it be there eventually, but we’re not ready to point visitors to the new site design because the new site looks horrible because I haven’t been able to spend enough time to update it to be where we want it. How do I see the site the way it will look once we flip the switch to the WP site here with Soundcheck (though I’m not really sure how to do that either)?

    Typically people will set the site to “Private” while working on it. This allows people to view the site who have access, but not the general public.

    If you have questions in the future, you’ll want to create a new forum topic.
