    Themes:
    Dignity: The one I would choose but disintegrates when the page widgets is added to the sidebar
    Connections: Not the most exciting and the text is difficult to read (light grey) but layout is good.

    Error:
    “Not Found .. Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.”
    Solution:
    If you are a tidy kiwi and manage to delete all of the posts, the first page will show “Not Found .. Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.” Error. I found a solution by drmike (http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=12614&page). Basically ”all of your posts have been deleted – so add a post and the message will go away!”.

    Images:
    The screen width for a 2 column theme seems to be around 750 pixels. So allowing for the sidebar images should be formatted to less than 445 pixels to fit onto the screen without the need for resizing.

    Missing Blogroll widget
    Joyce had to help out with this but to get a blogroll onto the sidebar use the [Links] Widget.

    Found that pages sort alphabetically, which made a mess of my word 4 research order. So put a number in front of the headings, .. but.. if you go to 2 digits the order goes 1,10,2,3,4, etc.. so to get around this placed a space in front of the single digits in headings, so 1, 2, etc preserves the order! The page order in the manage pages seems to only work when editing the pages.

    From KimH
    RSS and Feedburner soon, but this article bet me to it, so I thought I’d let you know about it:

    http://theedublogger.edublogs.org/2008/02/01/adding-a-rss-feed-from-feedburner-to-your-blog/

    “RSS” is a way blog readers can keep track of new content on the blogs they like.

    What it is – behind the scenes your blog is creating a data file of the posts you – it’s called an “RSS Feed”. People can subscribe to that feed to read the new posts on your site – and other sites – without having to go to your site. Great when you read about 20 blogs! “RSS” stands for “Really Simple Syndication” 🙂

    While there also discovered how to use the text widget. The icon at the right of the widget was new to me!
