Tutorial Roundup: Even More Stuff You Can Do With Thesis And Blogs

This article is deprecated! Any technical information refers to software versions that are now obsolete. Please visit the DIYthemes Blog for current updates, or check out the old Thesis Blog for a treasure trove of website marketing insights.

It’s about that time again.

We’ve got a bunch of new Thesis tutorials for you, and some other cool links too.

Let’s jump right in!

New Thesis Theme Tutorials

1. If you’re looking to improve your WordPress SEO, here’s how you can add “no follow” to the reply link in Thesis (it’s found in the comments. It’s not a real page, so Google doesn’t need to follow it).

2. Do you want to associate a specific image with a specific category? Here’s how you can add category specific icons to your articles.

3. When you log in to WordPress, you see the main WordPress dashboard. If that’s too cluttered for your liking, here’s how you remove widgets from the WordPress dashboard.

More Articles You Should Check Out

Over the last few months, between my work here at DIYthemes and at Social Triggers, I’ve popularized the use of the Feature box.

Not only does it convert well, but it’s also GREAT for qualifying your readers. If you still haven’t added one, here’s a tutorial on how to do it.

However, if you’re struggling with improving your conversion rates, here are two more resources you should check out and bookmark:

  • Have you seen Chris Pearson’s presentation “How to Feng Shui your website and Turn Traffic Into Customers?” If not, go look at his slides. You’ll learn a ton.
  • Several popular bloggers have asked me for advice on improving their conversion rates. Instead of keeping those conversations private, we recorded site review videos, and now you can see 7 of them in one place. (there’s more than 3 hours of consulting-quality advice there, so don’t miss out).

And lastly…

Here’s some weekend homework:

If you’re not building an email list, it’s time to get started. Go ahead and add email signup forms to the right places on your blog. And if you need some help, here’s how you can do just that in Thesis.

(Note, if you’re looking for a quality email list service provider, I personally prefer Aweber. That’s what we use here at DIYthemes).
