Thank you for the replies I shall take a look at the video.
I dragged the admin core stack onto some of my pages but I removed it until I get to look at the vids. However this stack has left behind some code that having deleted the stack, leaves an annoying TICK and CROSS towards the top of my page. I am presuming I shall have to remove all trace of this tedious problem with a text editor unless anyone has a better idea. I’m getting to wish i’d never bothered with this. Rather a costly and pointless exercise.
I’ve managed to put together a basic blog page following your video. I cannot however manage to get the icons in the admin editor to change colour. They are very pale at the moment. Changing the settings appear to make no difference.
