    Google Voice

    In GV there is a setting for you to change which # you want to show on caller ID, the callers or your GV#. The only problem with that is you won't know that it's coming from your GV line but you will see who is calling. It's a minor trade-off for the use of a handy, free service. ~C

    Too unprofessional?

    Hi Angela, Let me start off by saying first and foremost: Your site needs to reflect YOU so if you are not "business-y" then your site shouldn't be. Don't try to convey a personality that is not yours. Think of the old 'bait and switch' game that some retailers play; you get drawn in with the...

    Joomla Wordpress plugin

    You can use the plugin for either version of wordpress- check out the video on their "documentation" page for a bit more info. I did notice it doesn't pull in the comments attached to the blog posts nor does it allow for commenting (from what I could tell). Not really the optimal solution if...

    Joomla Wordpress plugin

    Sam, I took a quick look at the wordbridge site and, although the info is minimal, I gather that you just need your wordpress.com blog URL. Database & host would be for self-hosted wordpress blogs (wordpress.org installed on your own doamin/hosting account). ~C

    Hey WordPress VAs, Can I Pick Your Brain for a Sec?

    Vanessa, That means for 2 hours of my time they are only paying the amount = to 1.25 hours. Example: if normal hourly were $100/hr they would pre-pay $125 for the month rather than $200. Anything over 2 hours would be charged at normal rate. Although I don't usually charge for the extra...

    Hey WordPress VAs, Can I Pick Your Brain for a Sec?

    Mena, I never offered hosting it just wasn't worth it to me to become a reseller. I had 2 hosting companies I had personal experience with that I became an affiliate for and only recommended them to clients. As for domain, I would usually suggest they purchase it the same place as their hosting...

    Hey WordPress VAs, Can I Pick Your Brain for a Sec?

    Hi Mena, I've specialized in WP since 2007 so I have a bit of experience with this. In each contract I allowed for a 1 hour tutorial session for those who had never used WP(1/2 hr for others) along with a simple PDF manual of the basics so they had something to refer back to. I provided...

    Wordpress - free?

    Chuckles, There are many free plugins and just as many paid. Totally depends on what you want to do with your site. Don't worry about "flash" to start out, that stuff can be added later. You need to get your content set and provide good information to grab clients attention. Flash doesn't mean...

    Chuckles, If you want, I would be happy to hop in and make the change for you (free of course). Or we can meet on skype: you can share your screen and I'll walk you through how to do it. Very simple fix :-) PM me if interested. I'll be around today and can fit you in-between clients. There's...

    Amend Home page title

    On older themes the "appearances->menu" option is not active and the "home" tab is hard-coded into the theme so that whatever page you set as your home page (in settings) is considered "home". Make sure you've exhausted all other possibilities before doing the below steps. It's always better to...

    Resource Wordpress is experiencing brute force attacks - change passwords now

    Yes it locks overall login attemtps which you can set the parameters. Then you have the option if an ip is locked out x amount of times- the ip can be blacklisted forever. I like the option of being able to remember my passwords because sometimes I need to login to something on a diff device...

    What questions do you ask new clients during your consultation, and what are their questions?

    Thanks Sarah! I wrote that so long ago (4 years-eep!)but it still provides relevant info. My business has changed quite a bit since then so I don't follow the same routine but I do use pieces of it to this day. - I check out the PC (pc=potential client) website if it they provided it...

    Question RE: Another Redo of Logo

    It seems they all have several shades of one color and then BAM- two/three random colors. They should all be in the same tone or shade. I think the first step should be deciding what your main 1-2 colors for your branding will be. Pick colors that go along with your target client. Once you have...

    Question RE: Another Redo of Logo

    Hi denise, I like the idea of many colors but the colors seem disconnected. Maybe choose two complementary colors from the color wheel and put them opposite each other. The in-between squares would slowly morph from the one color to the other. Does that make sense? The font being used seems a...

    Question Same color looks different on different parts of the page.

    Lezly, Yes it's happened to me, again, it was usually some weird faint overlay image that was the culprit. be happy to take a peek if you want :-) ~C

    Question Same color looks different on different parts of the page.

    Hi Lezly :-) I see the nav bar blue you mention but don't see where the blue in the footer is. Maybe take a quick screenshot so we can see what you're talking about? Also, usually the culprit (in a pre-made template) is a faint overlay image. Just a thought. ~C
