WordPress Theme Installation

By | September 28, 2007

This week we’ll continue our journey setting up a website for podcasting. We’ve got the hosting account setup and WordPress installed. Now we’ll select a theme and install it. For those of you that saw the video when it was first released a couple of weeks ago, viagra new zealand pharmacy, I have reencoded the video and this is the full-size version.

    Hi Ken, I’ve been listening and enjoying the podcast series since I have been setting up my own blog to offer downloads for my radio program “Wisdom”. I would appreciate your comments and suggestions on the program – you can go to wisdom-radio.com/blog for a sample. I am struggling with two areas. I noticed that you have a topics line under each sho listing and a tag cloud page on your site. Could you help me with these areas of the set up – I don’t understand how this should work. Secondly, I used a graphic on the header of the Wordpress Theme and therefore have no “name” and sub-head description that the search engines can see. How do I compensate for this?? Thanks and Blessings,
    Paul

    Paul,

    Extreme apologies for the delay in responding.

    I listened to the podcast, from a technical standpoint, very nice, sounds like NPR. Great job.

    As far as the clouds, that is done with ‘Tag Clouds Settings’ which you can find at http://snipurl.com/i7oj

    The subtitles are actually done by an inhouse plugin that Bob made, I’m not sure what he’s wanting to do with it, but I’ll ask him.

    We actually don’t use it to its fullest yet because honestly I’m having a hard time just getting the podcast posted!

    Now, with the header, I believe what you want is the alt tag. In header.php, find where the image is (probably towards the bottom) and add:

    alt=”Your keyword text here.”

    and that should do it for you, we do the same in our header, if you hover over the image, you’ll see the alt text.

    I hope that helps, if I find out anything from Bob on the subtitle plugin, I’ll let you know.

    Ken
