I have finally gotten my niche, a domain name and have installed my WPD blog. I encountered a few snags. This ultimately took a lot more time than the 30 minutes allotted.
I had previously had a WPD blog with a shared account at HostGator. I now installed an add-on WPD blog. At first I didn’t understand where to install the add-on blog. It was amazing, but HostGator had a video that explained the very thing. It seemed that I didn’t quite trust it. Consequently it took me a super lot of time for a fairly simplle operation.
I’m still unsure that the original WPD blog was installed correctly. I had trouble seeing the stats. They never showed up. I also did not like how the theme displayed. I selected a different theme and then re-selected my original theme. The stats began showing.
I had eventually discovered “twenty Ten,” the theme on this blog and I liked it. It was available at WP.org, But not at WPD. I installed it on my new blog and it worked fine. I then installed it on my original WPD blog and it would not work. I thought it might have to do with one of the plugins. I deactivated them all. Nothing. I uninstalled and reinstalled Twenty Ten, and still no changes.
