How to take a screenshot

Click this link if you have an Apple computer >>http://www.imore.com/how-take-screenshot-mac-os-x

If you have a Windows computer like me, its simple. You can use the application called “Snipping Tool”. Most computers come with this; if not, simply Google “download snipping tool” and you will find help.

Another way to take a screenshot is to click on that button on your keyboard called “PrtSc”. Once you have clicked on that, open up Paint and paste the image (Ctrl V).

Done!

              1. But you can actually lie 😛
                but I believe yhu,
                and it was yhu that commented again! With a different Gravatar email I think :d

  1. can someone follow me on my blog? its fantagezeolla and i followed u! please follow me im new and i want followers! and btw your post helped me! :)))))

  2. Hi cloud
    How do you make a “here” go to another link?
    I mean like you know how you often do stuff like that, when people click “here” and it leads them to another page/post.
    Didn’t find any help on google… :/

  3. Hey, I’m not entirely sure how to add more menus at the top of my page? I’ve only got two and can’t figure it out. 100% new to this. If anybody knows how please help 🙂 Also, if possible, could you make a blog post tutorial on it, Cloud? Thanks,
    Bella xoxo

      1. I mean the things the options that you can click that say like “About” “Home”, or for yours they say “Shop” “Contact” “Fantage Comics” etc, those things, I’m not sure if they are called menus or pages tbh.

          1. I’m so sorry I keep commenting, I’m just getting a bit frustrated. I figured out how to add another page, I made a Fashion page, but if I want the drop down tabs so I can have like: “Outfit of the Day” “Outfit Ideas” etc. How do I do that? (If that doesn’t make sense I can explain it better, just tell me).
            Bella xoxo

            1. I get what you mean! you want sub-pages.
              To do that, go to Dashboard>Appearances>Menus
              Then look for your new page (outfit ideas etc) and simply drag it under a page you want!

                  1. I feel so bad for continuously bothering you. I honestly just can’t find my dashboard (Unless it looks different to the ones I’ve seen on other blogs), I have posted something on my blog to see what I’m looking and when I click on “My sites”.

  4. Hey Cloud82! I was wondering if you could help me with something. I was inspired by you to make a fantage blog! I am using WordPress, because it has many options. But it’s also frustrating to use. I am trying to make subpages but I am son confused as to how that works. I see up above you were helping fantagebellie with the same thing, but I’m confused as well. When I go to the top left corner and press on My sites I don’t see WP Admin or watever it is. Help?..

  5. Hey Cloud! I Have a question wath type of front page should i make? id like ideas from all of you not just Cloud so everybody can reply but anyways ty!

  6. hi, i love your blog! I was wondering on your sidebar it says “status” then you have a gif of your fantagian? I was wondering how you did it because I’ve been trying to find out for ages! thanks<3
