To make it easier for completely 'Do It Yourself' persons to have a privately hosted WordPress blog and customize the theme themselves, I've made a series of videos.
I show how to use WordPress' default 2010 theme and I have created a 'child' theme (explained in the third video) that you can download HERE. As I get questions or additions/changes are requested, I will update the child theme at that URL.
Want a new look? Anyone can do this with my video instruction. I have 'slanted' the directions to Stampin' Up! professionals as they are the bulk of my privately hosted sites. So, what do you think?
VIDEO ONE – Cropping and sizing your MDS banner:
VIDEO TWO – Customizing & Tweaking 2010
VIDEO THREE – Uploading & Customizing 2010 Child Theme
Coming soon… 'must have' plugins for the 'Do It Yourself' people.
If you are receiving this via email, click on the article title to view the video on the web.
For those of you who have tried (unsuccessfully) to change the link to where you want the widget to go to, I have created a video that may help you.
In the video, I show you how to correctly find and copy the link to replace in the code I have given you. In this case, it is your DBWS 'Promotions' page.
Many times, the current special is also in your branded 'store' (i.e., the store that can usually only be gotten to via your >DBWS Home >Shop Now). If you want to link directly to your branded store, use the code below but change the XXX with your Demo ID:
YOUR SHOPPING CART CODE:
Remember, the code above is for your DWBS store directly (after you put your Demo ID in it!).
