how to make a thank you pageMay 16, 2014 at 14:59 #19449
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,

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?May 16, 2014 at 15:47 #19462
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.May 16, 2014 at 16:03 #19467
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.

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.May 16, 2014 at 16:30 #19474
you are the best thank you so muchMay 16, 2014 at 16:43 #19475
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?May 16, 2014 at 16:47 #19476
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.May 16, 2014 at 17:06 #19477
thank you so much…May 16, 2014 at 17:30 #19478
the other thread is closed to replies the “centering thread”
as far as the theme for free 2 questions
1. is it specific to my donation them for the afrika site or do i have an option at any one?
2. also similar to my blog on my http://www.realtalk101radio.com front page i want to create a blog on this one with the blog roll and the side bar for widgets?May 16, 2014 at 20:07 #19479
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,

ok my link you made for me on the footer is not working. Its not redirecting to the email
2014 Afrika Fifty6</p>
this is not forwarding to the eamail account. is there something missing?May 17, 2014 at 08:07 #19483
It looks like you have it working on my end. When I click the link, my email app creates a new message addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
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,

Just let me know which one you’d like to have as the free one and I’ll add it to your account for you.

Ok one more question is youve seen i own a radio station and we are putting together a concert series and i would like to use your themes is you have one that caters to a website that is promoting events such as concerts ….May 19, 2014 at 15:54 #19527
For your other site, I would look at Elite or Moonrise. They could be a good fit for promoting events.May 19, 2014 at 16:40 #19531
