As it turns out, I’m no technological genius, I’m not even close to being on the average scale of practical tech knowledge.. Thank God I’m not doing a web based course, as I would then struggle both with understanding it AND not have any other students to get advise from.
This time the help was provided by Rosa Gollan, who seem to be adapting to this networking thing in an extraordinary pace. I’m so jealous.
First of all she helped me get a new theme on my blog. Yes, I know I’ve had a few different themes before, but as they had christmas trees on them and looked pretty lame I have been trying to change it. It turned out to be harder than I though, none of the themes I downloaded would fit. She suggested that I should update my blog, and voila! As you can see, the new theme now works.
Another new thing on my blog is that I have added an audio player. In the bottom of the sidebar to the left you can press play and listen to some funky music while you read my highly entertaining writing. Rosa helped me figure out how.
First I downloaded the Audio Player from WordPress, then the Audio Player Widget. Back on my blog I went to Plugins and activated the two. I then went to the Library (which is under Media) and pressed the button Upload New Media. That allows you to choose a song saved on your computer and then upload it to your blog.
Then I went back to Appearance and drew the Audio Player Widget into the sidebar, and then pasted in the url containing the music file.
Other things I’ve managed is this
