$20 for 5 minutes - Need Wordpress Guru's help!!!

17 replies
Hello Warrior,

If you're experienced with Wordpress, I'm sure this problem will take you a couple of minutes to solve.

I'll gladly pay you $20 for a few minutes of your time and more if it takes longer.

Thanks
Mikey

    Actually, without knowing what theme is used on your blog and what is the general setup... everything is just guessing. Your questions are very theme-specific, so you need somebody to take a look at it.

    On a general note: if you don't know what the problem is and how to solve it - don't ever guess how many minutes it would take to fix it. You are not in position to tell me how long it takes to do the job!

    Usually, I help a lot of warriors with their WP issues without asking a cent. However, it drives me crazy if somebody wants to set a price on my knowledge, experience and time.

    Now PM me with the url and the detailed description of your issue

  • Hi --

    You need to do this.

    1. Click on Pages. Make sure you have a 'Home Page' (or whatever you are looking for) there. If not, make one & include whatever content you want.

    2. Click on "Settings", then click on "Reading". You will see something that says "Front page displays". Change the little circle to "a static page", and for the front page, select a drop down box that says "Home Page". You can leave the 'posts' page blank by leaving it at "select", or simply selecting a different page.

    And there you go! Problem solved!

    $20 please?

      Complete nonsense!

      Here is what the OP's problem is:
      OK basically it's my homepage. I don't know how to edit it. From within the dashboard I can edit any page but my homepage is not there.

      I want to be able to change the media on the homepage (there is a video and 2 other boxes for media).

      Then there are 2 boxes with text. One displays the most recent blog post, and the other box well I have no idea what it's displaying...
      Did you read it before posting your unrelated "advice"?

        Nonsense? Do you know what you are talking about? Of course I read it. What kind of question is that?

        It seems he is having a problem actually editing the homepage, and if he follows the advice, should work fine. If that is not the case, and I misunderstood the OP, then I would expect a reply from him, not your interpretation of what he is asking..

        Mikey121 -- Did I understand your question correctly, or is there something else you need to get it to work?

        Thanks,

        - J

          It's the kind of question that comes to mind when reading an 'answer' that makes absolutely no sense at all.

          The man wants advice on how to change the content on his home page - which, without knowing specifics of the theme he's using, is an impossible question to answer.

            I suppose it's a mute point -- but he does describe what he needs 2-3 posts down:

    I can help you as well (no charge) if you need it. Just PM me the site / login and I can figure it out pretty fast. Sometimes theme builders think like "programmers" and not like "end users" and some important aspects of managing a theme can get lost in the translation. No big deal though, we'll get it right
