Thanks, Michael! The email notification about new comments here included several links that were really helpful. I had not found anything that met my needs when I searched in the WordPress.com support area. This link is really excellent. Thanks so much! Here is what I copied out of the email, since it didn’t appear in your message above.
Hi Creative Cat – there’s a WordPress.com forum thread all about the issue you’re experiencing that you might find helpful.

Michael, Looks like links are deleted in these replies. Too bad, because the discussion in the link was really good.
Wonder if there is a way to share the link in a way that will show up here?
I am very pleased with the help I have recieved here and elsewhere.

Michael, re: rolling over links in these replies to see them…. I’m not sure what you see on your monitor, but the messages just end before the links are shown. There is no “blank” space for the links to be shown, in whatever color. I see this in your message on Feb 4, as well as my later message on the same day.
Curious thing, that.

Oh—wait! I see it now! I wasn’t expecting it to look like that at all! I was looking for a visible link address. Wonder if there are other links I have missed because of this.
You are right, it would be helpful to see the linked phrase in a different color!

The theme that you show at the beginning of the video is Albeo, but i can’t find it in 2.8.
Any idea what it might be under, or has it been removed/

This was a good video but I’ve been searching and searching & cannot find any detailed list of which themes support widgets and which do not.
Thanks for any help.

I’m having trouble finding the comicpress theme that I have downloaded to my hard drive, and (as far as I know), in the appropriate folder. I got it to work yesterday and then something happened and it went away. Any ideas?

I got it to work on Saturday. Something happened when I was filling in some of my info (don’t ask me what page it was. That was about a hundred pages ago) and it got messed up. I lost the page. So I ended up starting a new blog and now, when I go to the page where I’m supposed to be adding the theme, there’s no option to do it. I’ve deleted the Comicpress file and downloaded it again, about three time. It’s in the “themes” folder within one of the WordPress folders within the Sites folder. I downloaded the WordPress Manager and installed it in the Plug-in folder, right next to the Themes folder.
One shortcut on the ComicPress download page says to click on the “plug ins” option in my account and do it from there. Again, no such option.
I have so many friends who’ve been successful with this and I’ve never heard about it being so hard. What’s up? I’m running it from a Mac and have downloaded, installed and set up MAMP as well.

Greetings all. Great concept for this site.
Here’s my first post. Using my iPhone, I was attempting, just because, to change the template of one of my blogs. When it brought up the floating “preview”, there was no way i was able to apply the change.
Anyone else have this issue? Have a solution? Well, i really don’t need a solution, i can’t imagine that many instances/situations where i would need to change a template via my iPhone, but thought what the heck, someone here might.

Very good. Especially for bloggers that are new to WordPress. Keep it up wordpress. Probably some links will be more helpful, like they have in YouTube. The links are intregrated into the videos. Food for thougth. Remember that newcomers might just got frustrated to go around unguided and leave. Ciao.

Nice video, Michael. Have a small problem. I started with one of the default theme that had a customizable banner. I loaded in a photo, it showed up nicely. Then I tried out another theme with a customizable banner. Looked even better, and my photo was there in the banner. But when I intalled the theme, my custom photo was not there, although my content showed up fine.
Any ideas? I don’t want to import the photo in again, it is already in my media directory.

Forgot to mention that I saved the new banner photo in the original theme, and when I viewed my blog after logging out, the photo was there.
