"I would caution that the value of a slider is going to vary based on your type of visitor and type of content. People like pictures and do click on them. Sliders give you a visually appealing way to present content and sometimes an image will grab…"
"I like! I'll have to check that out. Thanks. That link doesn't seem to work though?
I've used a really nice event planner from Code Canyon too if you ever need a more complex one with maps and venues and more. It's called…"
"http://www.shelbyvilletoday.com/directory will take you right to it. It's CSS modifiable as well. I need to clean up the sub-category lay out, but looks like yours will be more straight forward than mine given the fewer categories."

"Jeff, have you used the Prose Theme? Just reading the description it does sound like perhaps it does have more quick access settings than other themes by StudioPress, but I haven't used it before. Maybe I should set up a development site where…"
Don, just wanted to drop in and welcome you to this great community! As you’ll come to find, this is a place of inspiration, encouragement and tons of knowledge. I hope you find that and more as you pursue your endeavors.
PS Also, even though we've know each other for a while, I'm not sure if you know about the free e-resource I offer entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com. I think you'll get a ton of value out of both resources.
