    Extremely Helpful, Thank You!

  3. The Cat Behaviour Channel says:

    This was really interesting and well presented! Many thanks! I wish you’d
    shown it as part of a child theme modification, as I expect the next update
    of the theme will overwrite those changes?

    what would be the correct resolution pixels to fit all in the background.
    If im making a design on Photoshop want to correct dimensions so it fits
    nicely with no repeat.

    how do i access the code part

  12. LynneAndChad says:

    @WordofMobile Glad you liked this video! I don’t have a tutorial for
    exactly what you mentioned, but the transparency you’re seeing will be
    controlled on your css stylesheet. You can use FireBug to discover exactly
    what element needs changing and remove the opacity variable completely to
    make the panel opaque. Check out the Firebug post under the “WordPress
    How-To” section of my blog for more tips there. I do offer one-on-one
    training if you’d like more help learning how to fix this 🙂

    How do change only the homepage background?

  14. LynneAndChad says:

    @garudaeph to access the code you’ll need to open the .php file in a text
    editor. You can use something as simple as notepad. The files are located
    in your theme’s folder on your server under wp-content/themes/YOURTHEMENAME

    what is that program

  16. wcpom says:

    thanks good information and well presented

  17. Lynn Strauch says:

    Thanks. I have a question. If I add a comment to someones blog, how do I
    add a background color or image to my comments? Do you know, or anyone else
    know? Thanks.

    @MikeS3334 Glad the video was helpful! It shouldn’t actually matter if
    you’re using a single or a double quote, so my guess is a simple syntax
    error, but it’s hard to say what that might be, especially if it is picking
    up the color you’ve specified. I could take a look at your source code for
    you if you post your domain name 🙂

  19. LynneAndChad says:

    @DarkAssassin2097 well, the short answer is “yes” 🙂 you can add an image
    to any theme, it’s just a matter of adapting the layout around it. I looked
    at your theme, and assuming you want to add your image to the left of your
    post content, all you’d need to do is replace the ‘background’ property of
    the body in your CSS. You can always use the contact form on my blog if you
    want to set up a coaching session and I can walk you through it 🙂
