If you are a regular of this blog, you would have already notice the change in the layout; no big changes really – just a change of the colour scheme, header, menu navigation. Hopefully this new layout is more friendly for you in terms of navigation and moving around.
I guess the biggest change is at the Love Quotes page. Previously it was just a HTML page but I have changed it to a blog instead. I love to compile love quotes as I found that there is just so much one can learn from all these love quotes when one truly understand them. In the old page, Old Love Quotes Page, I have put all my collection of love quotes in the same page; I did not categorize them. I have also naively plugged in a Google Search Bar in the hope that it would allow users to search and to go directly to the love quote that they are looking for.
It did not give me the result which I wanted. Apparently, the search result always points back to the same page, Old Love Quotes Page. I have always wanted the page to be more user friendly; that it will allow user to go directly to the love quote or author that he/she is looking for. Hopefully with the new layout as a blog, it would give the users more flexibility.
Right now, the users can use the search bar, that comes with the blog theme at the top right hand side of the page, to search for the love quote that they want to find; the user just have to key in the author’s name or part of the love quote into the search form. I will continue to improve the user’s experience by putting the love quotes into different categories, for example, there could be a category like ‘sweet love quotes’ and another like ‘inspiring love quotes’ etc.
The changes have not be completed yet. There are still quite a lot of back end work to be done. Right now, you may still get some pages that appear in the old layout. Pardon me for that and thank you for your extra patience. I truly appreciate each and everyone of your presence.
In addition, I need help from WordPress expert and anyone who had done this before. Allow me to explain a little. I have the love quotes page installed at http://www.symphonyoflove.net/lovequotes but I want the actual Blog’s URL to be at http://lovequotes.symphonyoflove.net. I have referred to WordPress’s help pages on how to move the blog within domain; but I was quite confused by it.
I have tried out the steps given on the page (probably I was not doing it correctly) but it didn’t work. Does anyone here know how to do it? Would anyone be kind to provide me a ‘dummy step by step’ guide? Any help would be highly appreciated.
