    I just purchased VK today and my posts are not coming out the way they look in preview. I really like this theme and want to keep it but I am new to blogging and not sure how to make this work. I have several reviews coming up so its important i get the lay out looking professional as quickly as possible.

    I have three questions:
    First, how can I ensure that my posts are coming out the way they look in the preview? My pictures seem to be doubling up.

    Second, how do you make categories in the header..is it even possible? I would like to put book reviews, product reviews, subscription reviews and coupons in an area of their own.

    Finally where can I make the width larger. The box size is a little small.

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is qualitytimes7.com

    Hi there, let’s see if we can get all your questions sorted out!

    First, how can I ensure that my posts are coming out the way they look in the preview? My pictures seem to be doubling up.

    Could you provide a couple of links to posts where your photos are “doubling up”? I took a look but couldn’t quickly find any.

    For example, I don’t see any duplicate images in these recent posts:

    Second, how do you make categories in the header..is it even possible? I would like to put book reviews, product reviews, subscription reviews and coupons in an area of their own.

    If you’d like to link to categories from the main menu, you can do that by creating a custom menu under Appearance > Menus, and adding the categories there.

    Our guide to creating a custom menu explains exactly how to add a category link.

    Finally where can I make the width larger. The box size is a little small.

    To make the width of the entire content area wider you would need to use some Custom CSS, which is included with the WordPress.com Premium and Business upgrades. If you decide to go that route, let us know and we can help you with the specific CSS you’d need.
