Hi! Thank you so much for providing this forum, especially for people like me who think they understand all of this until they have one of their own.
I have some questions I was hoping someone could answer. I have searched tutorials and did each thing they stated, but I'm still not having luck.
1. I recently switched from Blogger to WP/my own domain. I have never been able to import my Blogger posts to WP - it would get so far and I would get an error message. In the process, it wiped out my old Blogger URL, even though they were still in the Dashboard. I changed the Blogger URL, and I see the import messed up the posts (i.e. there are no longer any paragraphs in them).
However, I noticed in my site stats today that someone (no idea who, either!) is going through a ton of my Blogger posts today (even as we speak) - but they are actually on my domain. I hope I am making sense. Instead of being on theshizzlelife.blogspot.com, they are actually on http://theshizzlelife.com/2006/05/tt-22.html (example). These posts are on my domain, yet I can't get them onto my actual WP blog nor can anyone see them - is there a solution for that?
2. I would like to set up a recipe blog/site, and eventually a genealogy one as well, off of my main blog. These are subdomains, correct? I would have to install WP on each one?
3. I also wanted to put things like my blogroll, buttons (for webrings), etc...on a different page so that it didn't clutter up my site, and then put a link in my sidebar for someone to access it. Would this also be a subdomain?
4. I cannot edit themes in WP, except for the current one I have that someone made for me. It says, "If this file was writable you could edit it." When I tried to follow the directions on WP to allow me to change it, I am only able to change the file permission to 666 - I can't even change a file through the WP admin panel. Would anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
I am so sorry if these have been asked (I did search the forums for answers). We were out of power for 5 days due to a freak snowstorm last week, so I am behind and the one person I could ask for help is out of town now.
Thank you so much for any advice.
