Background and slider configurations

  1. Hi,
    I'm new with WP customization. I'm having some problems with the Oxygen theme:

    - First, I'd like to have a background colour at left and right and another (or just white) in the center, like with other themes. Is that possible? Do I need to change the CSS or is it simpler?

    - Second, when I click in "Página Principal" the page loads the infos and the slider. But when I click on the header the slider don't load. How can I change that, so in both cases the header is loaded?

    You can visit my site at

    Thanks in advance

    The blog I need help with is amapar.wordpress.com.

  2. re: color customization
    The only further background color customization your can do requires purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

  3. Re: post slider ie. Showcase template

    Oxygen Theme Description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen Live demo site http://oxygendemo.wordpress.com/

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    Showcase page template
    When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template. ...

    Post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide, unless you make the post Sticky to show off in the featured slider, in which case they’re 750 pixels wide. Keep in mind: if you mark a post as Sticky but the featured image is less than 750 pixels wide, then it won’t display in the slider and will still disappear from the river of posts.

    If you failed to upload and set a featured image in each post and until you do upload one into each one the gray box will be there.

    Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails.

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide

    If you don't see the page attributes module then make sure that you don't have it hidden in your screen options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/

  4. Thank you timethief, but I think I don't explained correctly the last question.
    I have already set as a dinamic page, but when I access http://amapar.wordpress.com/ I can't see the slider, but when I access http://amapar.wordpress.com/pagina-principal/ I see it.
    I want to configure the Showcase page to the Home page, but when I access the pages I've created I don't have a "Home" page.

    Do you know how I solve this?

    Thank you again.
