    icon thingy (“blavatar” or “favicon”) can be different on each site…

    First decide on the picture.
    It needs to be bold and unfussy so that it ‘means’ something when it is viewed in that tiny thumbnail.

    Remember where to find it on your own computer.

    On the WordPress site…
    (it might be possible to hover rather than click…) > My Sites/Switch Site
    > click the site
    > WP Admin
    > Settings
    > General

    in “BlogPicture / Icon”
    ‘Choose file’
    & navigate to the file
    click/double click the pic so the name appears next to ‘Choose file’
    click ‘Upload Image’
    and crop as required

    It should say
    “Your blavatar image has been uploaded and you should start seeing it appear around soon!”

    The picture OR ANY UPDATE you make could appear immediately or it might take a few hours/to the next day before appearing.

    Line Breaks….
    On a PC shift+ENTER gives a single line break.

    But, afaik, on a mobile with no shift key… either
    type <br> *
    then change to the HTML tab before > ‘Update’
    … or
    Change to the HTML tab and add line breaks with the ENTER key.
    > ‘Update’

    * Display HTML Code on web pages,
    convert to its ascii equivalent :

    satnav lifetime updates
    Garmin : ” A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. ”
    TomTom : 2018 “TomTom STOPS supporting older Sat Navs with ‘lifetime’ updates”
    “TomTom has made more than 60 Sat Nav models obsolete”
    “… you can download 4 or more full updates of your map of Europe every year for the life of your product.”
    “Lifetime – this is the useful life of the device, which means the period of time that TomTom continues to support your device with software updates, services, content or accessories. A device will have reached the end of its life when none of these are available any more. ”

    Dunton Folk organises folk music events in the Bedfordshire village of Dunton. Sessions and Concerts are organised throughout the year and the emphasis is on folk and acoustic music. The folk events in Dunton are still in their infancy but we hope to see more and more involvement with other folk organisations and with other villages to further develop the activities within our village. Sessions in the March Hare public house started in October 2011 and are held on the first Tuesday of every month. Concerts are arranged in either St Mary’s church or the village hall. – UK gig listings Gig Listings
