Ok. I opened up a Smashwords account and bought me a copy!

Just loaded it up on my hand-me-down Nook. (EPub looks fantastic - love the cover!) Looking forward to spending some quality time with this.

And just think, when K-Man moves into the sci-fi big leagues someday, we can all say "Hey! I know that guy...we used to rap about books over at this place called Donation Coder..."

We need autographed hard copies before that happens cheesy

The range you mentioned is nothing to be frowned upon, for any non-profit site of any size.
FWIW, I find myself having less and less of a problem with ads online, if a time comes when it is a necessary evil then so be it.

Looks good to me  Thmbsup

I think it would be good. WordPress has its own odd ways. When a 'static' page is set to be the front page then the link to blog posts is not readily available.

If you decide to do it:

Add a new page and give it a title ("Blog"?) only with no content, publish it
Go to Settings, Reading and set the Blog page to "Posts Page" (already using the 'static page' and 'Front page' settings)
Finally need to add the page to the menu. Appearance -->Menus, click the page and add it to menu
256  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 31, 2013, 08:09:08 PM
You also probably need an easier method or link (via menu) for visitors to access your blog posts instead of just seeing the latest 5 in the sidebar?
257  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 30, 2013, 09:59:13 PM
You can have a contact form in the side bar using the same plugin (or move the floating one to top right of the page)
258  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 29, 2013, 07:43:43 PM
By the way, I suggest you remove one of the search boxes.

Either remove from sidebar

Appearance --->Widgets ... In the sidebar (right side of page) click on dropdown of the search widget and delete

or remove from the header

Appearance ---> Suffusion Options, then, Sidebars--->Right Header Widgets, choose to hide the search

This needs its own thread (split the posts into a thread later?) but since the previous posts talk about the comfort of using Linux...I need some help in fixing laptop wifi.
Previously had Windows 7 but I installed Mint 13 over it earlier in the year. wifi is iffy some of the time and it takes a long to time to connect especially coming out of sleep.
What steps (may be start with iwconfig?) do I need to perform to diagnose and fix?
260  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 28, 2013, 09:04:59 PM
Go to Appearance ---> Widgets and drop in a Query Users widget into the sidebar on the right of the page and see its configuration options. 

Can comment is the default. What do you mean by reply to posts, that's no different than commenting or am I misunderstanding what you mean? Starting all new posts gets into http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities as a starting point.
261  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 28, 2013, 03:48:10 PM
No problem.
If interested, couple of examples of what can be done with Suffusion are my site in my profile and in my sig.

Is there supposed to be something other than the landing page and the contact form?  I see the image, but no way to get to other content.

The one in my sig is just a one page site for now. With Suffusion you can turn off header, footer and have full page w/no sidebars.
262  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 28, 2013, 03:44:00 PM
I think (other than security) usually there are two 'immediate' plugin to dos when a site is set up. SEO and contact forms. If you need them these are some to consider:

WordPress SEO by Yoast http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ (very highly rated)
or
All in One SEO Pack http://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/


Contact Form 7  http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/ (many love it, some feel it's a bit overkill)
or
Slick Contact Forms http://wordpress.org/plugins/slick-contact-forms/

You're welcome. Let me know what I can do moving forward.
265  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 28, 2013, 10:18:38 AM
WordPress with Suffusion ready now, will send you the login details right after this.

(Don't let the default Suffusion look by itself put you off)
266  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 28, 2013, 09:39:07 AM
If you like you can send me the ftp/cpanel details
267  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 10:07:49 PM
Yes just contents of the wordpress folder, and those contents go inside the public_html folder
268  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 09:50:20 PM
The files inside the wordpress directory should inside public_html

Like:

public_ html
        |_____ wp-config-sample.php
        |_____ wp-activate.php
        |_____ wp-admin (directory)
         etc.

Willing to do the move if you want (if not wraith or yourself)
269  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 09:32:42 PM
You moved it one level up from where it was? I am asking because the "/" in my previous post may be confusing (site root vs server root). Apologies if so.
270  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 08:52:10 PM
Not sure what the /kyathab folder is? The WordPress files should be in root ( / ), one level up from where they are as of this moment (I am looking at your site)
271  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 05:51:41 PM
Yes 3.5.2 and that's the correct directory.
However I believe the WordPress zip (and tar) will be extracted in /wordpress and not root (public_html). One would have to move the files, before or after upload depending on what is easier.
Then comes creating the database, filling in the details in wp-config and running the install script
272  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 05:17:50 PM
WordPress itself needs to be installed via FTP, themes and plugins can be installed from within WordPress after it is installed.
Let me know if I can help with the install itself and of course moving forward.

EDIT: Many but not all themes and plugins can be installed from within WordPress after it is installed.
273  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 04:47:47 PM
Speaking of themes, wraith posted some earlier, the one I most often use is Suffusion http://aquoid.com/ and is capable of a normal blog layout, tiles, and others. It is very flexible with many possibilities. It's also an option .
274  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 01:51:11 PM
No email, you will just notice it when site loads for you (a default/404/other page on the server instead of nothing or a namecheap place holder).
275  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sci-fi novel now available from DC member kyrathaba! on: July 27, 2013, 01:47:20 PM
Should be good. Old days it would take 1~2 days to propagate, should be much quicker nowadays
