Background color

  1. Lorelle:

    I get what you mean. Even though I finally got the background pic placed, NOW my blog links are out of alignment!!!

    I have to admit, I sure am learning the hard way!

    It will probably take me another day to fix it once I figure out where and how.

    I can't wait to get my new book (released last month) which will probably help me a LOT!

    Have a great day...I am reading your web site btw.

  2. Okay, I miss spoke. And yes, you are learning the hard way.

    You cannot add any old WordPress Theme styles to the CSS Editor. It will not work.

    The style references in the Sandbox Theme are completely different from the standard format and references used in other WordPress Themes. COMPLETELY.

    You have to compare the two and track down which means what where and change them to match the Sandbox Theme. I'll be writing more on this, but remember, this thing isn't more than a couple days old. Let those of us who are experts poke and prod at this and then we will write all the instructions you want. ;-) We're all volunteers here doing the best we can.

  3. now now, lorelle. you're suggesting that wp.com NOT be used as a beta test for the general WP community. when has that ever happened? i think we're supposed to let them break it _first_ and then clean up later ;)

  4. I am this close ----> [ ] to having my blog the way I want it.

    It's looking pretty good right now. EXCEPT that my sidebars are in the wrong place. They were worse before I started tweaking it. They were off to the right totally.

    But, I KNOW I will fix this darn thing or die trying. But, overall, I think it looks pretty good right now.

    Thanks everyone! I'll keep reading and tweaking, and drinking enough coffee to make sure I can keep awake until it's PERFECT! PERFECT I TELL YOU! LOL LOL (evil laugh, too much coffee)!!!

    Here's some throw it away if you hate it feedback from a nit picky pain in the ass artist. *Warning* I'm an everything's gotta match for me to be happy type.

    I look at your background and on the right hand side I see a big turquoise/teal/blue/green jewel thingee. I look straight ahead and all I see is a lot of red. Would you consider replacing the red with a colour that is blended with the other colours you've got going like (1) one of the turquoise/teal/blue/green jewel thingee colours or (2) the gold colour in the background?

    If you hate this suggestion then don't respond to it just pretend it didn't take place, ok.

  6. Timethief...

    Are you referring to the photograph in the background??? Those are bubbles. Coffee bubbles.

    So, I should just lose the photo, right? I agree. I think I'm just going to go with a solid color in the background. I kinda liked the coffee bubbles, but they're too distracting.

    But, it's 3 am here. I'm not able to sleep because the sidebar that is sitting in the wrong place is really bugging me and I can't sleep.

    I'm thinking that it's just the "fixed" code that I can't change and that I need to change my theme. The sidebar works fine in other themes. My problem is that I really LOVE the really cool header I created and it only works well within this theme.

    IF ONLY there were more themes!!! (I know, I know, not enough volunteers, too much work!!!)

  7. Ahh I see. I had no idea that those were coffee bubbles. I sure admire the fact that you're trying this because I sure don't have the skills it takes. The best of luck to you snd get some sleep, eh.

  8. TimeThief...

    Okay, I changed my entire blog look. I am 99% satisfied with the result ... until, that is, I can really get in and change it again!

    Doesn't it look better now?

    Cleaner, crisper, nothing distracting.

    I'm happy. But then again, I just came back from Starbucks, and that ALWAYS makes me happy!

  9. G'morning
    It's a clean and crisp of the theme I use Regulus but where did the posts go?

  10. They were just test posts. I'm working on my first "official" post right now.
    Thanks...
