Hmmm...that sounds like a CSS problem. PM me your URL and I'll take a look.

Breanna, Help!!

This is so frustrating! Now I am seeing a favicon that isn't even an image in my folder. I did make one and replace the one that came with it but this is showing something else entirely. And every once in a while, my blog shows up on my home page instead of the static home page.

Could this be happening because I am trying to add plug ins or is it just a bug in the new version of wordpress? Or could this really just be the theme I'm using? I really don't want to have to change. I had a hard time finding one that could be customized the way I wanted it without a lot of big time changes.

Oh, help!

Ok, it's official. I hate wordpress! Now all of the links to my pages are showing up as error pages, and in the admin area, it says there are no pages while at the same time it says there are 15 published pages. ut:

This site is just a side thing, not my main business by any means. I went with wordpress because I thought it was going to be easier, but it looks like it really isn't.

Hi Tami, I'm so sorry to hear you're having such a hard time of it! I'd love to be able to help you but Bri is our resident WP expert an my working knowledge of the program is relatively limited...
Is it possible it's just the template you're using? I know it feels like a lot of work to start over, but it sounds like you're at the point where you're cleaning up rather than moving forward. Maybe a fresh start would make more sense now?

Hang in there!!

Woo hoo!! I figured out why everything was centering itself!

Oh, and my pages came back too. Don't know what that was all about. ut:

So, now if I could just figure out why some of my print is so large and why some of these plug ins don't seem to work, I think I'd be doing pretty good.

What is the best way to back up a wordpress site? I saw that back up plug in, but I must have done something wrong because it didn't seem to work.

Inquiring minds want to know! Why was everything centering itself? I couldn't see it in the CSS code. Where was it?

Jeanne,
When I entered one of the widgets in the left sidebar, I didn't close the center tag on the image. I figured it out quite by accident when I tried to enter a widget underneath it and noticed that the title of that widget was also being centered. So that one widget was messing all of the rest of the wording on the page.

Tami,

I sent you a PM regarding the too-large text.
