It’s been a great year.  I’ve learned so much; met some great writers – some fun people – and commiserated about problems with others.

All in all, a wonderful experience.  Thanks, guys!!  😀

 

Another WordPress Feature Learned

Inserting Sub-Headings Into My Blog

I subscribe to the “Daily Post” blog here on WordPress.

One day last week, I perused a section about changing “the default font size (and color) in a post.”  It stated, “you can use HTML in the Text Editor to adjust size and color.  One way of changing the size of font is by using the Heading tags like <h2>, and is best used to insert headings and sub-headings in your posts and pages, using the Text Editor.  (See above.)  I archived this particular Daily Post blog for future reference.

The main thrust of this section in the Daily Post was how to emphasize some text, without using bold for a whole paragraph.  It suggested instead, to use blockquotes to emphasize a passage only.  It was the mention about headings in that section, which caught my eye.

I clicked on the link relating to the headings and sub-headings and printed it out.  I followed the instructions when blogging on my Pussycats3 blog today, and was very satisfied with how it looked.  When I was in the Text Editor, on that blog, it was very easy and there were no other apparent coding inserts.  However, in the Text Editor on this blog, there were coding inserts referring to the placement (left, center, or right) of the sub-heading I wished to insert (see above sub-header).  It was easy enough to see where to place the header codes.  I’m assuming that the WordPress themes I use is the reason for the differences when Text Editor coding is used.

So, I have a feeling of accomplishment.  Having never used coding, I found it easy enough, if I have the printed codes right in front of me.

I am looking forward to experimenting with a change of color (if my theme allows) code the next time I feel like exploring.

 

WordPress Perusing

Every so often, I like to peruse the different features that are available to me on WordPress.  I decided to do this yesterday because I realized I wasn’t receiving emails for postings by many of the bloggers I follow.

Inbox wasn't as full as I thought it should be.

Inbox wasn’t as full as I thought it should be.

At first, I thought these bloggers were not posting.  That was strange, because I really liked their postings, and when I decided to follow them originally, I expected they would be posting quite a bit.

Do follow blog

I decided to take a look at “Blogs I Follow.”  Well, of course!  That’s why I wasn’t getting emails about their postings.  I had to edit those bloggers on my list, and manually allow their postings to appear in my email inbox!  Duh!

Today, when I peeked into my inbox, I found many more emails from those “missing” bloggers.
