Most of my web pages are hand-coded, but I do WordPress posts for a couple of organizations. When I copy from someone's text into a WordPress blog, there's a pesky new line feed at the end of every line. WordPress thinks they are paragraph markers, which display wonky. So I have to hand-edit the end of most lines, deleting the new line and replacing with a space. Maybe it's because I skip a step, and let my email program display the Word file instead of loading into Word. Anyway, do you have any trouble with this?

 

One of the really great parts of your website is your geographical locations. I've used it dozens of times. Is that all done automatically or do you carefully craft that page? Just know that we appreciate that work!

 

Mr. Legs, I have no idea what hand-coding is and most likely don't want to. :)

 

The geographical location page is A LOT of work that I need to catch up on. :)

 

Thanks for letting me know you use it and appreciate the work.

Hand coding is very simple (just kidding):

That's a foreign language to me.

I have a hard enough time with English.

NO thanks!! 25 years ago I was the first teacher in the district to have a class website...which was tediously put together by writing in HTML 'code' and as a beginner it was so painful. 

 

I did rearrange all of my 3 trip blogs in reverse by post date and I was messing around with the layout section and I saw that one could also post the 'archive' posts (older ones) in verse order as an option. This is usually on the right sidebar. Here is a screenshot of the option:

Here is a question for my next step. I have taken my three trip blogs (which should not have been created as separate individual blogs and want them to now be listed as a trip on the ONE main blog )I know how to import them to the new "Main Blog" I am creating. But what I need to know is ... each trip blog I bring in needs to be on a new PAGE? Or how done one keep them separated and listed is the side column as such? If I figure this out on my own eventually I promise to add here what I did for those that might have made man mistake.

Rob thanks for this latest bit of info.

I think I'll give it a try.

Futzing about in the effort to bring the three big trips' bogs into a Main Blog page. I may be hindered in achieving what I am trying to do because I have imported the three blogs into one new one and in so doing may have set it up differently than if I had started out and stayed with one. Hell if I know but I guess I have made progress on some goals. I intend eventually to really screw things up by attempting to migrate what I put together in Blogger into the Word Press blog platform (it is my nature to not be satisfied with a minor success... the whole enchilada or nothing!!).    So here is how it has evolved into the new blog made from combining the three.
