my site: http://wrath.blissful.nu

So yeah, I'm making a website using the Wordpress blogging system..really flexible and easy to use. I like it! However, there are a couple things I'm nit picky about and it's really starting to bug me. First of all, I can't do multiple line breaks. It just won't do it. Theres got to be a way to get past that. I even put a bunch of br's and it still wouldn't go past two line breaks at a time. That's no biggy though it's just something I'd like to be able to do incase I ever need it.

Now what really is the reason why I'm posting this is because this thing has the option to change the order of your pages listed on the navigation..for example if I make a biography page, I can make that page..the 3rd one down on the list. But by default it also says it orders by alphabet, yet you should still be able to change order how you like with just putting the page number you want it as, according to what this thing says anyway..So I'm trying to put the "Credits" page at the bottom of the navigation. I put it as #5..for some reason it won't move out of the #2 spot though! >_<

Don't mind the layout by the way. I know it's ugly. It's just what Wordpress comes with. I'm making a nicer one for it later. But yeah, if any of you guys have any experience with Wordpress please let me know.. -_-

EDIT: Blah..keep this thread up cause I will come back to it but right now the site and helping me out with it is on hold. I f*cking upgraded the wordpress system and when I did that it screwed me over and it now acts as if I don't even have a website anymore. I'm going to have to get my host to reset up my account again.

Ahh I'm sorry man, I've never used wordpress before. Whenever I made websites, my best friend was always and still is: Notepad.

Anyways, with the breaks, did you try doing: <p></p> ???

Like so:

This is a sentence.
<p></p>
This is another sentence.

I've kinda gotten used to it now. Other than the alphabetizing problem and the line break thing.

I've always used Notepad too but now I'm lazy when it comes to sites..Wordpress is just really easy to update and add pages and stuff with. Not only that but people can comment on updates and stuff. And it's still fully customizable. So yeah.

UPDATE: I've found an option to sort the pages by page order. However now I'm having the same problem with the links, only there is no option that I can find to list them how I want them. I tried to order it by rating, but it changed nothing. x_x

By the way the site is now up and running again if you guys wanna check it out. It doesn't really have any content yet and I gotta change the banner image, but yeah. If you wanna see how it's looking so far, go for it. Tomorrow I'm gonna add some content, change the banner, and then put a shoutbox in one of the side bars.

If you read my first post you'd know. stongue.gif

So far it's not really bothering me though. Right now the only thing that bugs me is how it puts all the links in alphabetical order by default. Under the top links section (which are links related to me) I had to put an asterisk by 'Home Page' so it would appear on top. Also, I can't name the top Links section "Links: Wrath" because it will put that section below the affiliates..I don't want that o_o
