Best way to provide free digital download on WordPress site?

I've been avoiding adding widgets to my WordPress site ... keeping it basic, I think, may reduce the amount of security policing I have to do myself. But now I've made a coloring book page I'd like people to be able to download and print for free. Anybody with more experience know the best way to do this? I have it as a jpeg, but could easily make it a pdf.

Embedding element from one Wordpress site into another

I manage a website hosted on wordpress.com -- which, annoyingly, does not allow uploading plugins. I manage another Wordpress website which is hosted elsewhere, and I can upload plugins there. Taking advantage of this second site, I created an accordion slider using a plugin which I would like to show on the wordpress.com site. Assuming this can be done, what's the best way to achieve it? (You can assume I have some, but not a ton, of experience with both Wordpress and HTML but very little with CSS.)

Help my students post to my course Wordpress site

I teach media arts, and am trying to get my (college) students to post to our class blog, which is at a wordpress.com site. I have invited them all as authors. I am the admin. The students who have never used WP before are posting fine. However, the students who have their own wordpress sites are having a hard time, because when they try to post, they are only given the option to post to their own sites. [more inside]

Options to open a WordPress post in a responsive popup

I'm looking for a stable plugin that can display an existing WordPress post from my site within a responsive popup window/lightbox when the user clicks a link. I've installed the free version of Popup Builder, which works pretty well, but it doesn't let me display a post, requiring that I recreate the post content inside their editor as either HTML OR a shortcode (not both). The pro version includes an iframe option that may be suitable, so I may check that out if I can't find any other options. Any suggestions? [more inside]

WordPress setup to replace Evernote?

Now that they're switching the basic version to only access by two devices, I'm wondering if I should use my webhosting and a WordPress install to achieve the same thing.

WordPress, or roll-my-own cms?

I have a bunch of friends and acquaintances in a particular career for whom operating WordPress as a user is just too overwhelming and complicated. Also, none of the themes or plugins I'm finding are actually geared to meet their industry's information presentation requirements. So do I learn WordPress theme and plugin development so I can wrestle it around to be what they need, or do I create my own lightweight CMS that does what they need while minimizing and simplifying the user backend?

Is Wordpress secure now?

I've read anecdotally that Wordpress is pretty flawed from a security standpoint, and I'm wondering if any of the issues in this article have been patched in the four years since it was published (there have been a lot of updates since then). And if so, what are the current concerns about WP security? Anything a site owner like me should be concerned about, or watching for?

Very slow Wordpress site

My travel blog is loading very slowly, especially the photo galleries. I'm using Wordpress, Nextgen Gallery, and Foobox.

Free wordpress themes - appearance somewhat comparable to divi or avada

Looking for a responsive wordpress theme that's quick loading, doesn't have a lot of bloat, and lets me use my own plugins (SEO, etc.). I used to work in the biz; that plus my current field and sometimes slightly particular aesthetics make a certain amount of customization inevitable. There's so much out there to weed through and many reviews/compilations aren't all that helpful.

How do you choose a WordPress theme?

With so many choices of themes, how does one go about narrowing them down? I'm a bit overwhelmed by the myriad of choices. I understand that security, updates, and responsiveness are all important. I'm brand new to WordPress and want to get going on building my installation, but I'm really kind of stuck until I figure out this theme thing. Bonus Question: I do realize you get what you pay for when it comes to themes. Do you have any recommendations for reasonably priced ones?

I am starting a blog using a very simple wordpress template. But, Wordpress cuts off the post so that users see only the beginning. In addition, it is not clear that there is more content to follow.
