1) Go to Dashboard -> Widgets -> Manu and add a FreeHTMl widget in which you place your link

<a href="http://www.www.godsgracesaves.com">Back home</a>

2) Edit the file /skins/crystalglass2/posts.main.php. Around line 154 you fing

'link_title' => '#',


Change the # to any text you like, e.g.

'link_title' => 'Post',

3) Copy the file /skins/_item.feedback.inc.php to the /skins/crystalglass2/filder. Next you want to edit that file.
On the bottom you find

// ------------------ COMMENT FORM INCLUDED HERE ------------------
skin_include( '_item_comment_form.inc.php', $params );
// Note: You can customize the default item feedback by copying the generic
// /skins/_item_comment_form.inc.php file into the current skin folder.
// ---------------------- END OF COMMENT FORM ---------------------


That's the code that generates the comment form. You can Cut/Paste it to just above line 78:

echo '<a id="feedbacks"></a>';


and the comment form will appear above the comments.

Good luck

I couldnt get 1 and 2 to work

2) try experimenting with the other three:

						'link_text_zero' => '#',
						'link_text_one' => '#',
						'link_text_more' => '#',
						'link_title' => '#',


As far as i remember the first one may display 'Send feedback', the second 'There is one comment', the third 'There are * comments' and the fourth displays '>>'

1) Where do you get stuck?

in 1 i done it like you said didnt work

i just made mistake i thought i would try it again before i ask again i went to delete the link that i want linked back to my home page and deleted the blog home link

To restore the Home thing you just removed: Add a 'Menu link' widget to the 'Menu' bar in Dashboard -> Blog settings -> Widgets

Then add a FreeHTML widget there with no title and a link in the body. A link looks like:

<a href="www.godsgracesaves.com">God Grace Saves homepage</a>


I tested that bit on my blog and it works.

Good luck

i got the button fixed but the link is broken
heres the link http://www.godsgracesaves.com/prayer/blog1.php

is it possible to edit the file directly

yes but its not recommended..

I see that your blog title works fine.. the big one at the top

the problem is with the small one right after home | contact...

i assume you have added a "free html widget" in the "top menu" container under "blog settings>widgets"

so far so good, but i assume you have entered

<li><a href="www.godgracesaves.com">God Grace Saves homepage</a></li>

whereas it should be

<li><a href="http://www.godgracesaves.com">God Grace Saves homepage</a></li>
