    how to make a thank you page

    Prentice,

    You can add a new page by going to the Pages section in your WordPress control panel and selecting Add New. You can do that to create a thank you page. You can enter any text and/or images you’d like to have there.

    Once the page is published, view it in your web browser and copy the URL to your page. You can then use that URL in the donation portion of the theme options page to set the thank you page for people returning from PayPal.

    Let me know if you have any questions or trouble,
    Bill

    Is there any special featured i need to put into paypal or is it automatic once i put the url in the “Thank you page tab”

    Also i can not find where to put on the front page a contact link by itself.
    should i just create widget with his email in it as a link? i want it to be stand alone under home page widgets above where the organized themes link was but bigger text?

    Also for some reason whenever i add to or delete from a page and hit preview it take me to a page “Page Not Found” i dont know if it is a cliche in your theme or word press but my personal website does not do that.

    If you’re using the donation bar that’s in the theme, there’s a spot for the URL in the theme options page that will let PayPal know to send visitors to that URL if they click the “return to site” link that’s in the PayPal page. That’s all you have to do to set that up. It won’t force users back, but if they click the return link, that’s where they’ll go.

    The only way to preview is with the page/post set to draft. Otherwise it will return a 404 error like that.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Sorry I forgot about the contact link there. The easiest option would be to place it in a widget. You could also insert it in the footer text that you were customizing. Instead of this:

    
    <p>Your Footer Text</p>
    

    You could do this:

    
    <p style="font-size: 20px"><a href="http://yourlink.com">Contact us</a></p>
    

    You’d just need to replace the http://yourlink.com with the URL to your contact page. The 20px in the snippet above will change the font size. You can make it bigger or smaller to suit your needs.

    That’s another option for you.

    BUT WAIT. i Want to keep the page footer ID i just need to add the contact email to the president.. which would be best with this theme.. a widget or footer text?

    You could have the footer text that’s there and a contact link using this:

    
    <p><a style="font-size: 20px" href="http://yourlink.com">Contact us</a>
    <br />
    Your Footer Text</p>
    

    That would give you two lines: the top one for your link and then below that your footer text. You can even make the link larger than the footer text if you’d like to by using same 20px to adjust it.

    The advantage of adding it to the footer is it will be visible on all pages since a home page widget would only be on the front page.

    Good questions. You can use the second theme for any site, be it the one you’re currently working on or another one. There’s no limitation on where you use it.

    Our niche really isn’t themes that are focused on blogging. They all have the ability to have a blog as part of a site. None of them are really made specifically to be only a blog.

    If you have any other questions, let me know.

    Enjoy your weekend,
    Bill

    It looks like you have it working on my end. When I click the link, my email app creates a new message addressed to info@afrikafifty6.com

    If I could offer a suggestion. Instead of linking directly to an email address, create a page on your site for a contact form and then place a link to it there. You can have the form set to email to that address. That way users on a shared computer or device could still contact you.

    You could use Ninja Forms http://wordpress.org/plugins/ninja-forms/ or Visual Form Builder http://wordpress.org/plugins/visual-form-builder/ both are good free contact forms for WordPress to create that.

    Have a good weekend,
    Bill

    For your other site, I would look at Elite or Moonrise. They could be a good fit for promoting events.
