FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why do links at the bottom of posts take me to another web site?

    WordPress is a content management system that anyone can use to host a web site. This requires you to have your own hosting facility, which is not free. But the creators offer wordpress.com, a free hosting environment in which anyone can create free web sites. This is what we have done and our site there is helderbergphoto.wordpress.com. In addition we registered our own domain helderbergphoto.com that simply points to the same place.

    Knowing this it is easy to explain what is happening when you click on those links. Whenever we post articles we tag them with keywords to make them easy to find in the future. These keywords are displayed in two places; in the tag cloud in the left sidebar and at the bottom of the post. Hovering over a tag in the tag cloud reveals (your browser displays it in its status bar) that it links to our site with an address something like https://helderbergphoto.com/tag/light/ but hovering over the same tag at the bottom of a post reveals that it links to an address like http://en.wordpress.com/tag/light/. So it will return instances of the tag anywhere within en.wordpress.com; in other words all sites hosted on the free wordpress.com that are in the English language. This is a feature that allows sites to be discoverable to wordpress.com users so someone that visits our site might, after clicking one of those links, find other sites on the hosted wordpress.com that interest him. We don’t have control over this and considering we don’t pay for hosting, we are prepared to accept this. To move to our own paid hosting might necessitate an increase in subscriptions and we don’t see any need for this at this stage.

    As a matter of interest the en in the address is the international standard language code for English and is probably used because the browser can tell the site the language that the user’s machine is using, so a German user might very well find those links point to de.wordpress.com, the German language version; de being the code for the German language.
