Do you ever find that a client is reporting a problem with their website when all is looking fine at your end? If you ask them to visit this page and fill in their email address and your email address. You will be sent an email with their browser details, screen resolution, flash version, operating system and more useful info. It will put an end to all the head scratching!
Before you design your Facebook timeline cover its worth bearing in mind that they have introduced some new rules:
No calls to action such as like or share.
No promotional offers.
No contact information (That should be on your pages about section).
A bit of a pain if like me you had devised offers with the previous customized landing pages. However the new page structure does give you the opportunity to create an inspirational cover. If you are looking for ideas read on.
If you are not creative you can download one from a selection of 15 on the Fake Science Facebook page.

Along with countless other people since I started using WordPress I am now wondering what took me so long! It has so much functionality and the support forums are excellent. Having said that, there were a couple of really straightforward tasks that it took me a while to work out when I was creating my first website. Most of the answers were staring me in the face I just didn’t know where to look. I’m going to go though a few of them in this and subsequent blogs.
