  1. My first post, only a few days into entering the brand new wide world of Thematic and Wordpress. I understand basic CSS/HTML and I'm picking up php as quickly as possible, but having some troubles. Please help. THank you ...

    I'm wanting to place a large image on my home page. I have created a new template for the page, have set the footer and other divs that I don't want to show to display: none (was this the best way to do that?). I want the image to be scalable according to window size, but unfortunately there is a large white box covering the bottom half of the image. I can't figure out what this element is on the page or how to remove it. Please see www.josephfrederick.com

    This is what I have tacked to the end of default.css in my child theme directory ...

    /* =Page Templates
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */

    .page-template-home-template-php #wrapper {
    background: url(images/mainimage.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed;
    -webkit-background-size: cover;
    -moz-background-size: cover;
    -o-background-size: cover;
    background-size: cover;

    }

    .page-template-home-template-php #container {
    display: none;
    }

    .page-template-home-template-php #footer {
    display: none
    }

    .page-template-home-template-php #footer {
    display: none
    }

    .page-template-home-template-php #main {
    display: none
    }

  2. To clarify: I want to place an image on my home page, that bleeds beneath the menu up top. I would like the image to be scalable depending on window size, but I'll settle for just having it fully appear.

    Where do I place the image? In the wrapper div? And how do I correctly remove the other elements on the page if all I want is the menu.

    Thank you so much.

  3. Just try attaching the background image to the body only instead of the wrapper, you should be good. ;)

  4. Sorry, when I say body only, just use the .page-template-home-template-php tag without the #wrapper.
