Hello Mansfield!

Welcome to WordPress.

This is a sample blog for the Circle. The intention is to set up a free one using WordPress.com then put in the following:


It uses Celestial Aura Theme V2.2 with a custom 880×269 pixels header image (created in Photoshop Elements) on a 275 pixel header band (defined in Celestial Aura Settings).

The Blog Title has been switched off in the settings.

Background colour is #bfdaf5.

Menu is set under Appearance; it has a URL link to Google UK and to the website for the Catenian Association; it also has the Categories included.


Calendar, Meta (labelled Admin) and Custom Menu have been set for the LEFT SIDEBAR. Recent Posts and Recent Comments have been set for the RIGHT SIDEBAR.


Akismet (comment spam detector)

Google XML Sitemaps (which will need to be run when it is properly live)

Platinum SEO (to ensure that the search engines pick it up properly)

Strictly Auto Tags (to create Suggested Tags, Mass edit tags, Autocompletion, Tag Cloud Widgets, Related Posts, Related Tags, etc!)

Sociable (to make sure that the posts can be automatically shared via Digg, del.icio.us, Facebook, Blogplay, email, FriendFeed, MySpace, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Technorati and Twitter)


WordPress Thread Comment (to allow comments and replies from the same box).

All you need to do is access the admin section and post a blog entry, with or without photos, to get the ball rolling.

Good luck!!

Be Sociable, Share!
