I have 2 BuddyPress Social Theme Questions:
1) Is there a way to have a WIDER header on the Social Theme?
Or is what I currently have at the top of http://JazzHeaven.com/social the max WIDTH possible?
(It seems like 421x131 or similar. This is what I uploaded under "Appearance/Theme Options/Header Settings/Insert your logo full URL here".
=> Would be nice if that spot accepted uploading a wider JPG as well, s/th like 960x150!
Would love to make that header go over the WHOLE WIDTH of the page...)
Also, I tried uploading a "custom header" (960x150) under "Appearance/Header", but... that placed itself way too low on the page, strangely, which wouldn't work.
2) For the main background, behind all the main content (so not the header!):
would it be possible to customize that, so that it looks like the main content area on my main site at http://JazzHeaven.com ? (I have the Photoshop files...)
The plain white is a little flat for my taste.
DavidM had kindly already responded with this:
"As for the background image, I believe you can easily do that with the BODY tag:
To clarify, that would be a CSS edit, something you could include in your theme's style.css file. You can access that file directly from your admin area at Appearance > Editor too."
Can you tell me how to implement the following pieces specifically?
I have the middle part:
I have the bottom part:
How/where do I put this, so that I have the background just like main site at http://JazzHeaven.com?
So, the darker-blue color on the right & left side; and the lighter-blue cloud/sky background for the main section in the middle? And the ending it correctly with the bottom part?
So, DavidM, you were saying to add some code under Appearance/Editor in the "BuddyPress Social Child Theme: Stylesheet (style.css)", right?
Could you tell me how I would insert the 3 pieces I mentioned (dark blue on right & left side; the custom cloud/sky background in the middle (with the sheet music edge, but that's already part of that repeat.jpg), AND ending it correctly with the BOTTOM.JPG to end the "sheet music horizontal border" correctly at the bottom?
Thanks very much for your support!
PS: Sorry, one more: I upgraded to the 1.6.2 Social Theme, BUT my CHILD THEME is still at 1.2.4 - is that the way it's supposed to go? I always ONLY updated the parent theme, but I never touch the child theme, since that's where the custom stuff sits?
Thanks in advance!
