How to Install and Use ScribeFire in Firefox

Last time I told you how to install and use a new WordPress Theme.  Now I would like to explain ScribeFire.

THIS IS OPTIONAL, YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO THIS.

If you remember from our meeting, ScribeFire will allow you to write in split screen.  You will not have to log into WordPress everytime you want to write. 

Follow these steps

  1. The first step is to install the ScribeFire Plugin.  Just go to that page and click “Add to Firefox”.
  2. Once installed you will have to restart Firefox.
  3. Click the new yellow icon in the bottom right of the browser
  4. Ignore the ScribeFire Quick Ads
  5. Click on the same icon in the new popup window
  6. Now add your blog by clicking on the “Launch Account Wizard” on the right under Blogs
  7. Just enter your site name (example: http://www.airportlanesproshop.com)
  8. The next page should be left alone
  9. Enter your username and password
  10. You should be all set to use ScribeFire

Let me know if you have any questions.

Updating your WordPress Theme

Getting and choosing a new wordpress theme is very easy.

Search the web for WordPress Themes. You can also checkout the WordPress Theme Directory.

Once you find one you like, follow these directions.  This only works in FireFox.

  1. Right-Click on the Download Button
  2. Choose Copy Link Location
  3. Now log into your WordPress Admin Section
  4. Click Manage
  5. Click Upload Files
  6. Right-Click in the “From URL” box
  7. Choose Paste
  8. Choose the circle next to Theme
  9. Check the box next to “Remove archive after successful extraction”
  10. Click Upload
  11. Now let’s choose this theme.  Click Design.
  12. Choose the new theme you just uploaded under Available Themes.
  13. When the window appears, if you like it, click Activate “Theme Name” in the upper right hand corner.
  14. If you don’t like it, there is an “x” in the upper left hand corner.

I hope this was easy to follow.  Please ask me if you have any questions.
