Re: Official WordPress users thread.

Hey guys-

me and my partner just got an account through Go daddy, and he uploaded Wordpress.

www.crossfitfullcirlce.com

since he's the one that uploaded this stuff, how much capacity will I have to do things separately from my own computer? how do I access the nerdy stuff (FTP etc).

I have been using blogspot for some time, and was just starting to think I was getting pretty savvy. Then this challenge came along!

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

Jason,
You and your partner both can have Administrator accounts in your Wordpress site.
As far as FTP and file management, you'll have to make sure you both have the appropriate GoDaddy account login info, which is where the files and folders that make up your site reside.
Matt

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

Just need to pop on here and give massive props to Matt who helped the redesign of CrossFit.ie. The site looks a lot fresher now, is easier to use and our community likes it.

Thanks Matt, your t-shirt will be posted this week.

PS. I know the link to the CFJ is gone atm, I'll get it back up asap.

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

i am feeling pretty dumb, but I am using the primepress theme,

www.crossfitfullcircle.com

and i can't figure out how to change the header images.

when uploading an application, such as vimeo, can you do this from a remote location, or must it be from the home computer, or must it be to the server (FTP/Go Daddy)?

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

Jason,
Read here for instructions on how to edit the header for Primepress:
http://www.techtrot.com/primepress/h...header-images/ (wfs).
Let me know if you need help with this. I just helped Colm of CrossFit Ireland (www.crossfit.ie) do the same thing.

You should be able to log into your wordpress site and godaddy account from any computer with an internet connection.

I've not used vimeo so I'm not sure how you'll need to upload it.

Edit: Look at these WordPress plugins that make inserting video into your WordPress posts and pages easy (including Vimeo):

Vipers Video Quicktags (I've used this one for quite some time)
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...deo-quicktags/ (wfs)

XHTML Video Embed
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/xhtml-video-embed/ (wfs)

Embedded Video
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...deo-with-link/ (wfs)

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

I am still searching for a free theme that works for us!

ARghh!

where did people find theirs? I have been through the wordpress.org lists, and I am still not happy.

Basically I want a header that I can put a logo in, and then all my pages below it. It seems like all themes have the PAGES ABOVE THE HEADER!

Arghh!
