A short interlude on wordpress hassle around menu’s (blog menu’s) – and then the new Venture for Tuition and courses that’s a continuation from 2012.
Just found out from Twitter that Nottinghamshire County Council are advertising Digital Champions via a Hampshire Company – its a cool idea but to really find out how websites are made, and how to set up the basics or just have a good startup course, a real tuition situation is a sound idea with a qualified tutor.
If you share course time with others, or book a hall for a group – or organise a talk with an existing group: that’s a good place to start and the cost is shared. That way you are sure of the person in your space or who you are meeting, know they have a dbs and can be confident that the information you are receiving is correct – and computers are safe and the information is appropriate.
Check the Tuition link below.
This blog menu hassle – It will take lots of data to find another theme that’s similar, that will allow customisation of the menu or have the right colour and position in the first place and have the ability to load all the header pics that were on the blog before – patience and lots of data time … soon …etc
<Luckily the INFORMATION that’s on the pages is still really cool – particularly if you want a day or a weekend away with family or friends – and lots of UK info on the set of UK pages. Click the menu options.
sigh … If the theme on wollypark could just go back to a white menu …. or a green one … sometimes when wordpress change their system we small folk get left out – it could be changed for $99 – but a new theme might be cool for a change (i’ll find a solution soon it will just take gb’z of data.)
Meanwhile everyone locally, ENJOY the Summer. Checkout the new tuition site:-
which is a micro business for Tuition and other concepts and has a quote contact form and pricing.
Also the site for donations at
the reason to ask for donations is that there are now 1650 following accounts and nearly 1000 followers which is excellent. The wollaton_nottm twitter and the future plans to explore social media analytics are going to take lots of datatime – and the Librarians aren’t allowed to let us make info for paid work in the library – so its bband at home!
and if you are interested in either – contact using the info form or the email.
Donations for running the Wollaton_nottm twitter and the blog would be gratefully received. Plus of course requests for quotes for the Computer Courses or Tuition.
We are working towards the Nottingham Aim Higher concept (Plan Higher?) – where everyone is entitled to a work life balance and the opportunity for Education and to do well in life – as well as to have some quality leisure time and some reasonably well paid work. Its part of our human rights and they should not be withdrawn – its not possible to withdraw humanity as a concept anyway … its just a necessity in the real world: if there isn’t enough money to go round then its a small piece of land and time to grow food and leisure time and enough energy to help sustain ourselves! Green growing info blog links soon. From the internet – Radford Gardeners Assoc link is on here too.
Outdoors, health, info, fun, entertainment … Six weeks to forget whats already learnt etc etc!
Wifi and Mifi – The Librarians can cope with us computer folk for a while and the wifi is of course free there – which is supa but there are so many opportunities and the library closes at 7pm. … …
There’s info on Courses and prices on the link.
Just so you dont have to search the whole site, page upates go here.
theres a full set of pages on the right.
Most significant edit – an addition to the Painting page, a new link at the end of the page
To begin with, the Page Edits were added as they occurred – new info going onto the blog with new pages and no chance of sorting the menu on an android phone left little alternative – since then there have been many updates and in 2013 the UK set of pages have been added – the menu is tidied up on the computer and hey presto all that’s left is to go back over each page (on the android?) and see if the whole blog works together: thats quite a long task but possible. The pages have copies made with ‘snagit’ – a computer programme thats really cool.
It’s wasn’t possible to choose the size of the early uploaded images with the wordpress app on android phones, and as the aim of the blog is to make it 95% from an android smartphone the images are to stay the size they are currently. With the latest app update the new pics have a choice of image sizes, Dec 2011.
This info happened in the beginning as pages were made and updates happened.
I am printing a copy of my page edits as they are created for security.
categories will be on the early posts soon hopefully, i’ve only just found how to add them with the wordpress app
Page Edits here, as they happen.
Commencing 23 Nov 2011.
For post info see the post page, or the Archive. At some point a page edit category to be included on pages and then readers can search for them, maybe via an ‘aside post’ but that’s a risky task on an app, so has to be completed on the pc.
