    Thanks.

    Could you recommend a good example of such widgets?

    @GaryJ thanks.

    I have cheked the links. I am a non-techie guy and it looks complicated for me to set the custom post up.  Won’t it be ok if I install “Genesis Featured Widget Amlified”  to be able to occasionally hide some posts that I might not want on the home page?

    @braddalton thanks.

    I have a related security question. When I see a comment that looks like a spam. Should I click, “spam” button or the “trash” button?

    If I am not 100% that a comment is a spam or not. Is there a security risk if I approve the comment?

    And would you recommend that I install wordfencesecurity plugin?

    Thanks. I now understand.

    I would also want to know if  both “Google Analyticator” that I had been using and “Site Stat” in jetpack by wordpress which I recently installed have  same function.

    If so, wouldn’t  it be a good idea to delette the Google Analyticator?

    1. I am a non-techie guy, please is there any difference in “backingup files” and “backing up only content” (post and pages) ?

     

    2. I want to consider deletting it because I expect to see the plugin in “WordPress plugin repository” but, it was not found. And eventhough I still manage to find the name via wordpress.org, it takes me to this link http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/simple-twitter-connect which when I clicked on the download page, it says the page cannot be found. So, I am confused if the plugin is still being maintaned, otherwise so that I can delette it from my plugin list.

    I would appreciate it if you could click on the link to see what I am trying to explain.

    @braddalton,

    you said “You could also use the export tool in WordPress but this will only backup your content and not plugin settings etc.”

    1. What do you mean by only backup your content?  Do you mean only my post and pages?

    2. Also when I checked “Simple Twitter Connect” plugin on the WordPress plugin repository, I couldn’t find it when I used the “search plugin search box” but, I did find it in the “search wodpress .org”  Should I delette this plugin from my plugin list?

    I don’t get you very clearly.

    1. GFWA is a wordpress plugin that is found in the wp plugin repository. What do you mean by “A plugin like that is definitely outside the normal realm of WordPress and widgets” ?

     

    2. What do you mean by “Zoninator plugin” in

    I hope to hear from you.

    Thanks. You said that you use : phpMyAdmin Export function

    1. How can I find this? Is it by going to Dashboard>Tools>Export ?

    2. And if I use this, will it back up everything necessary that the plugin will do?

    Thanks. You are right. I mistakenly mentioned Meta description instead of Excerpt.

    But, I dont know why the Excerpt is not showing on the last post unlike the ealier posts. I have not changed any settings in : Widget>Genesis featured page> show content linit>limit content to 315  and it has always been working with this setting until the last post where the Excerpt is not showing on the featured post.

    Do you have any idea?

    @ braddalton. Thanks for replying. Yes, it is no longer found in the official wp plugin repository.

    1. Could you please confirm, may be I didn’t check very well.

    The plugin is “wordpress database backup” by Austin Matzko

    2. And do you have an idea to an alternative?

    I want to consider “BackUpWordPress” by Human Made Limited

    Thanks.

    Many thanks Gary. I really appreciate your assessment and suggestions.

    On the last point. You are very right that it deserves a tagline and you actually guessed right that it is meant for African community in the Scandinavia.

    My main is actually to have it as a child website for the parent site ; http://www.afroscandic.com, where we celebrate and connect Africa and Scandinavia by providing vital pieces of information that can enhance the lives and socio-economic experience of Africans and Scandinavians. Be a learning place, a reference guide and a directory for Africans and Scandinavians. And this child website; http://www.mag.afroscndic.com would be focusing on birthdays, weddings and other celebrations to preserve life’s precious moments with photos and videos.
    The child website is directly linked with Afroscadic.com and we have placed a “News flash message” on Afroscadic.com that would notify people of this new child website.
    But
    Some people have opinion that is it better to have all these stories, both the more official content like interviewing government official, business representatives and the personal stories, like the weddings etc on same site. They argued that it will help to advertise Afroscandic very well since we are still canvassing for publicity.

    On the other hand, some have an opinion that it is good to separate them so that there would be specialization and a personal wedding event should not be mixed up with an interview with an Ambassador, government official, director of businesses, report from schools and university, etc..

    What is your opinion?

    Thanks ahead.

    Hi Robin,

    Thanks for your feedback and I would send the $.02 very soon :)

    1. You are very right about the gallery widget to stretch across the width. I have not done that because, I have got only 3 posts and it seems that it is connected with how many number of posts that would show there.

    2. I stylishly make it so that the front page does not have navigation menu so that it could probably give a unique look of how a front page of a print magazine usually look.

    Question:

    How to move around easily on the site is a concern but, where would you suggest that I should have the navigation buttons so that the home page can still have a nice looking front page just like the front page of a normal print magazine?

    Thanks

    Hi Doak Heggeness,

    Thanks for your advice. I thought as much but my concern is that I would like to have a bigger dimension for the slider so that weddings and anniversaries photos could be displayed very well for photos that would need to show from head to toe. I mean a big slider dimension like the Landscape but of course not with the dark background.

    Question:

    Would you like the Landscape theme if the dark background could be changed to the Manhttan background?

    Thanks in advance.
