From Categories to Post Title Response

Added by jesslyndw, response for Wrangling WordPress Permalinks Activity

So, since I’m using my blog for a different purpose (maybe the wrong one, oh no!) I’m going to post here (and maybe tweet a bit). I love the deliberateness with which I can customize this site.  Initially, I had set my permalinks to the Category/Postname option, but started finding the way I was writing… Read more »

Aw Man! Response

Added by jesslyndw, response for Adjusting a Few Key Settings in WordPress Activity

I feel like I learned this the hard way at week 2 of camp – plus I’m the worst for taking a very DIY approach, and not consulting online communities and forums, so it was a bit painful learning some of this stuff! That said, I’m in love with what I could create with all… Read more »

URL Shortener FTW! Response

Added by jesslyndw, response for Adding YOURLs- a URL Shortener to Your Domain Activity

Testing this out Response

Added by jesslyndw, response for Building a WordPress Calling Card Site Activity

So I’m throwing together what I am hoping will be an operational resource site for my work, but I’m not sure if how I’m setting this up is really well suited to what I’m doing.  techforteaching.ca should be full of events, resources and teaching tips, which I’ve collected in a WP blog.  I’ve not yet… Read more »

Subdomains and Images, yay! Response

Added by jesslyndw, response for Creating Subdomains in Cpanel Activity

I did it!   Look at this cool new trick I now know.  This was a straightforward process, and I appreciate the way this structured guidance is getting me familiar with the workings of cPanel.  I wonder, is there an easier way for me to find the url without having to reconstruct it by typing?
