Wordpress Attitude Theme Menu Bar Customize

Attitude Theme has been used for my Wordpress site http://51sec.org. It is powerful and simple to use.

here are some introduction about this theme from its website:

"Attitude is a Simple, Clean and Responsive Retina Ready WordPress Theme which adapts automatically to your tablets and mobile devices. Theme is easily customizable with numerous theme options via Customize. Some of the highlighted options are two site layout (Narrow and Wide), 5 layouts for every post/page, 5 Page Templates, 5 widget areas, 4 custom widgets, featured slider to highlight your post/page, 11 social icons and many more. Also has custom background, header, menu, favicon, CSS, webclip icon, and logo. Supports popular plugins like Breadcrumb NavXT, WP-PageNavi and Contact Form 7. It is also translation ready. Available Translation: Traditional Chinese (Taiwan), Spanish, Norwegian (Nynorsk), German, Russian, Dutch, Italian and Danish. Get free support on http://themehorse.com/support-forum/"

In original theme, the menu bar was not placed in the right place I would like to. It located between site site logon and header image. I figured out to use some simple CSS codes to manipulate it.

Domain 51sec.org was registered at GoDaddy and I was struggled with plain domain or naked domain 51sec.org not corrected pointing to my openshift App, although www.51sec.org is always working fine. Eventually after googled from Internet, I understood why and made it working . There are two different solutions, one is to use cloudflare domain services which is using flatten domain feature to achieve it. Another way is to configure Godaddy domain properly with forwarding option. Here are all steps for Godaddy configuration.

During setting up this "Network Security Memo" blog, there are some other helpful websites or tools being used but not listed before. This post will mostly focus on blog related tools. Hopefully this will help some other beginners when they are trying to set their blog site up.
