WordPress Questions:
1.) Q: How do you activate writing posts in HTML?
A: in your wp dashboard, click users beside the plugins link. Click on your name, then check the “use visual editor when writing.”
Thanks Noee!

2.) Q: My main page is so long with entire articles being published on the main page. How do I just display the summaries on front page without having to add the “more” tag on each and every article.
A: It shouldn’t be a problem. Just add the “more” tag to the articles that are currently on the mainpage. There’s just a few of them. All other articles I will write from hereon will have the more tag.

3.) SEO Question:
On the blog’s main page, given a choice between

  • multiple inline link units and
  • a Skyscraper + a box Linkunit at upper right corner

Which should I implement?

Possible answer from Google heatmap.

A: Keep the skyscraper on the main page. Leave the inlines for category summaries and archives.
