Finding and Customizing the Right Theme for You

Things are going great. You figured out how to write a post, how to add images to your pages, and even add a plugin or two. Now you feel ready to make a few changes in your WordPress Theme. Nothing outrageous. Maybe you simply want to change the font in your navigation tabs from bold uppercase to capitalizing only the first letter. Perhaps you want the background color to complement your logo.

Seems easy enough. Except you can't figure out how and where to make the changes. You want to scream, pull out your hair, pound on your computer, and blame WordPress.

Relax. There is a method behind this madness. Come learn the secrets with us this month.

    After the last meeting, I was telling Mickey all these themes made by so many people means you have to go into their brain - how they process things. It's a matter of finding someone whose brain matches yours. I have to organize my brain every day - like where I'm gonna store the short-term memory that my brain doesn't hold for me. And I think some of your clients may be wanting to take over after you've set it up, because they might be uncomfortable trying to tell you (in a way that you & their brain match up) what they need....or maybe I heard the conversation wrong re: your clients. LOL - hearing problems too :)

    Thanks, Kathy! Sorry I had to scoot out quickly at the end. I learned a great deal and look forward to implementing these tips and instructions when I move to .org and a new theme!

    Hi Kathy,

    PayPal won't complete my payment processing. I am still coming next week, if you will hold my spot and I can pay you then. Do you prefer check or card?

    November 5, 2013

    • Kathy D.

      I hit send too quickly... Cash or card please.

      November 5, 2013

    • Betty F.

      Will do. Looking forward to meeting everyone next week.

    Drats! Just realized that I have a conflict that night. Wanted to sit in on this one to use with a few clients. Kathy, do you usually post abbreviated notes after the month's meetup?

    October 23, 2013

    • Kathy D.

      Minka, give me a call at[masked] and we can figure something out.

      October 23, 2013

    • Minka W.

    I'm trying to sign up and PayPal is rejecting this... I use PP all the time, is anyone else having problems?

    October 22, 2013

    • Kathy D.

      Sometimes PP hiccups. I'll save you a seat and you can pay when you get there.
