>Technophobes Training Club – top 10 things to try


Ok this one is going to be a bit interactive but out of it I hope to be able to compile a list of things you might want to try out – if you need more details on how to do them, shout and I’ll put up some guides (with the help of the other gurus, I’m still not brave enough to do WordPress yet…)

Please share yours!

1. Save your template
Lets you play around with things without worrying that you’ll tweek, fiddle, hit save and then realise you’ve created a monster – save it and you can go back to where you were before you started (although you won’t get that time back, I’m afraid)

2. Set up to moderate comments on old posts / get a spam filter
WordPress has nice spam filters which I’m sure the WordPress gurus can help with.  Blogger gives you the option to moderate all comments on posts older than 2 weeks – setting this up seems to have got rid of some of the stranger stuff that was being posted (and I can delete in one place rather than having to go and delete each individually)

3. Add in pictures / widgets to your sidebar
Go on, they make it all pretty.  For Blogger instructions see here, for WordPress they’re here

Ok, come on then – what else should we try?

    >I came across a response from you on Metropolitan Mum and your love for Liz Earle hand cream. Nivea DNAge cell renewal hand cream is amazing too. It actually does what it says and smoothes away age spots, firms and softens hands. Love, Love it.
    Thought I might give your TTC a try 🙂

    >Me again! There are some great widgets out there if one googles. I found java script to embed comments in a post on other pages if anyone wants it. Blogger doesn't seem to allow comments on pages, only the home page. Jen.
