How do I best utilize the information on this site?

Paul Rothchild, of Emerge Prosthetic Arts is committed to providing fresh and insiteful information and topics for amputees, prosthetists & Othotists, Physical Therapists, etc. He wants to make a diffrence and needs more text here to fill it in so I will change it later.

With everyone’s involvement a change can be made for the better. So with even more text we can change later is really important now because I really don’t know whta to write becasue writing is hard and I should probably write stuff here that will help my search-a-bility.

Find out more about Emerge and stuff so here’s a link…

Then lastly in the footer.php add the bottom bit of the website, like so:


Now even with that simple bit of work (You might need to re-point some of your images as they are in different directories now) you have the website working.

Now you have to add wordpress custom code to then make it dynamic, so as The Doc said above, check out: and this will tell you how to add stuff, the most basic one needed is add: <?php the_content(); ?> to the page and that then means all the text you add into the admin will appear there.

If you need anymore help, just shout in the post, or send me a private message.

Hope this helps.
