i'm just joining this group today - I have lots of questions for everyone! I have a Wordpress website and blog and am needing to update everything! I will ask lots of specific questions for sure - just wanted to say "Hi" today.

Hi Everyone.   I know this question has been asked a lot before, but from you all's experience what Premium Wordpress theme do you recommend?  I have tried some free ones and you know you get what you pay for.   I want a main static home page but within that static home page I want to post my latest blog post, and what pluggins do I need to install to make this happen?   Thanks.

I am new to this Wordpress Group - and I love reading the questions and suggestions.  This is one of the most responsive, directly helpful groups I have been in.  

Thanks everyone for really trying to help.  I am not Wordpress or Tech savvy, but am trying to learn and grow too.  

Thanks - I really need your help & support & encouragement!

It really depends on which merchant processor you use.  For example, we use paypal on our sites and they host our secure pages. If you are just getting started with it I'd suggest them  easy to setup and you get your money pretty quickly and if you go with the paypal standard there are no monthly fees

Any advice on PCI and SSL on a Wordpress site? I am wanting people to be able to purchase things from my website but am a nervous wreck about not being in compliance with PCI. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to add an embedded SUBSCRIBE NOW form from Mailchimp on my Wordpress site. In the preview of the page, the text appears, but the form fields are missing. What gives? Have any of you had this problem before? I've tried disabling the javascript like Mailchimp suggested and this didn't work. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Eva, Will and Camden: Thanks again for all of your insight. Yesterday afternoon before heading into work I changed my theme. Now as you see you can click to leave a comment on the blog page. I have to be honest, I like the original theme much better. I don't know if that is the design of Accent, but if there is a way to add comment to that design I would prefer it. Will I was not using a plug in, just the comments in WP...any thoughts?

It appears as though your theme does not include comments on the homepage or blog-roll.

Taking a brief look at your site, if you click into your post itself (by clicking the post title), your comment area shows up fine.

There likely is a way to get commenting turned on for your homepage/blogroll, but I would have to research it as it is not something I have done yet ... though I will be doing something similar later this year on an upcoming project.

Hope this helps point you in the right direction.

Joe - 

Are you trying to use a comment plug-in or just the comments on WP? You might try adding a comment plug-in like Disqus just to see if that would work.

It could be several things: a setting on your theme, your theme not liking the comments code and conflicting, Is it a theme from WP or did you buy it somewhere? Not all themes are created equal, I'm afraid.

I'd be happy to hop on Skype sometime and try to help figure it out but couldn't do that until the weekend. But, let me know. I'd be happy to help (sometimes it's easier to actually see it - at least for me anyway!) 

Good luck, brother! I know those things can be frustrating.
