Need Some Quick Help Please

Post by milezone » Fri Sep 07, 2018 5:46 pm

Hi Everyone,

I love the program so far, its simple and clean, just a nice setup. But a few things I just cant seem to figure out. I am using the Theme "Clean Blog", so this is what I will be referring to on my questions.

1. On the very top header there is "Link #1" "Link #2" "Link #3" and "Link #4" I cannot find anywhere in the admin area where I can edit those. One I want to make a link to a Paypal option, and others just simple links like "About Us" and "Contact Us".

2. I am trying to add higher res images and many videos directly. But the system tells me about a file size limitation? How can I change this so I can upload about any size video and photo?

3. Is there any way to change the photo size of the headers on main home page, as well as each blog posted?

Thank you all for your help, I hope to make use of this awesome program!

The upload filesize limit is usually set by your web server (the computer your blog is located on) in a config file called php.ini. You would need to talk to your hoster (unless you have access to your php.ini directly).

However, please consider concerning the "any size" part that you will use up space on you webspace quickly (your space might be limited). Moreover, you're also expecting your blog's visitors to download those "any size" videos and photos – that may limit your visits from people on slower connections. It will generally slow down your blog altogether.

I fully understand the desire to have good quality images, but there is a point to optimizing them to some kind of "middle ground" between file size and quality. (There is specific software for that, but any image editor's "Save for web" function is a good starting point.)

could you tell me at least in example of this software
GIMP. You'll get similar results in your favorite image editor when resizing and saving to JPEG with ~85% quality, though a dedicated "Save for Web" may also reduce the color palette.

And please trim quoting to the necessary amount, thanks.

I think everyone would prefer if you didn't abuse quotes to introduce spam links.
