View Full Version : How to set up the "About" part? Two languages?
02-26-2009, 08:09 PM
Well, I have just installed pixelpost at BlueHost.
It looks cool and nice. Thanks.
Now, I have already got 2 questions.
So... How may I edit the "About" part of the blog (including the links, etc.)?
Now it says:
"So, what the heck is all this?
This is my "photoblog" or "photographic web log". This template is a default of the Pixelpost install, and I have yet to edit the information posted here."
And, I have set up 2 languages: English and Hungarian.
How do I make it seen on the blog? For all over the blog and for the "About", as well.

Well,... Thanks Dennis+ for the reply.
This is one side of my feelings.
The other is... it is a rather cold "welcome". I am new here, this was my first post, about my first installation. And when I opened the answer... a very, how to say, "serious" looking photo looks at me (the regard might remind me a non-pleasant ex-teacher of mine?).
And what is the answer? Two links, plus a little text telling me, that I did not do things, as it is required, as I was "supposed to do".
This is non-friendly, non-inviting, non-welcoming - for me.
No greetings, no signature.
This is the general habit, behavior at this forum? If so, the best to do is ... to run away from this program! (At least, for me)
The answer hit me so "strongly", that I had to express it.

Well I was actually in a hurry so my initial reply may have been (too) short. So let me make that up to you right now. Tamas, welcome at our forums and good to see you have decided to use Pixelpost as your blogging software.
I understand the links might be a bit harsh but they are automatically generated from the topic titles. The reason we created these topics are mainly because these questions pop up 3-5 times a week. You can probably imagine it gets a bit tiresome sometimes to repeatedly answer these questions. Especially when we have this nifty search option in which some, if not most, answers can be found.
The "serious" looking photo is actually Hugh Laurie. He is an actor and plays currently in the serie "House M.D." So don't get to intimidated by that, it is merely an expression I'm a big "House M.D." fan and I really like the actor Hugh Laurie. I do feel sorry that this image has intimidated you and reminded you of a non-pleasant ex-teacher. Please do accept my sincere apologies for this. Ex-teachers are no fun at all (at least, most aren't).
So, in short: my apologies again for the shortness and seriousness of my post. I do however hope it has helped you in your quest for answers. As you can see it is not the habit of this forum to be either unfriendly, cold and so on. But it is also a forum were a little initiative (e.g. searching) is highly appreciated.
With several new members a day you can imagine we as development team cannot welcome every member personally with a red carpet, some flowers and champagne. I do agree with you some friendly words might be in order, but remember, we are developers. We rather spend our time developing than answering the same questions over and over again.
Naturally our userbase is very important, as they provide us with various insights and comments that can push this software forward. We are spending a lot of time on it and give it away for free. No-one gets paid for doing this.

My apologies to you, too! I am sorry I "broke out"... However, that was the way I felt.
It was funny to read, that on the photo one should recognize an actor (well, I do not even have a TV, and I know nothing about the film, nor about him).
Well, the links you had sent to me are useful. Yes, indeed.
May I have a suggestion? (Let's suppose you wrote yes...):
The "about" part is an important thing, I feel. What about putting the "how to" INTO the about itself? At the "links" part? Or anywhere close to this...
Are there question coming up soooooo often? Well, it means, that this is not "evident", not easy to find out.
So, the way one has to manipulate the languages and the "about" is "not obvious", I would not have been able to find out on my own... without help. So, one has to seek for help... is "natural", it is in the "built of the program".
Well, I am ready to learn, and I learnt now to use the "search", what I will, for sure.
Dennis, I really appreciate your help, your very friendly answer, and the lot of energy you put into the product, and into assisting "lost souls", in the "heaven of the program".
(This message of yours was MORE than a red carpet... )
