Home Page Image Fill Entire Width?

  1. Is it possible to have my home page image (Welcome) fill the entire page, i.e., spanning over side and main columns? I would like it to slip under the menu, of course, so it would remain visible. I am using the Hum template and am upgraded.

    I had earlier asked a question if my logo in the header could get larger as well--since these two requests may be related, I'm re-asking this again here.

    Thank you,

    The blog I need help with is lillipop.net.

  2. Hi there,
    Any customization beyond what designed into the theme and described on the theme description page requires a cusom design upgrade and CSS editing.

    Here's the link to the Hum the description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/hum/
    Here's a link to the live demo site http://humdemo.wordpress.com/

    Provided you have CSS editing skills and are prepared to purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade and do the CSS editing required see here please:

  3. Hello!
    I have the renewable custom design upgrade and have been to the Hum and CSS urls you provided.
    I was actually hoping for a snippet (or two) of code I could drop in to make this happen. I've been making tentative changes to my CSS, but it's all been trial and error.

    Thanks

  4. Hi there -

    The Hum header is designed to be 180 x 200 pixels, and to be displayed in the left-hand column.

    If you need a wider header that stretches out across the top of the whole page, you might want to experiment with a different theme instead, since modifying that with CSS alone isn't practical in this theme.

    Since most themes do work that way, you shouldn't have trouble finding a replacement! If you need any help, just let us know.

  5. Hello Kathryn,
    As I suspected. I think I will experiment as suggested. Thanks!

  6. My pleasure - happy blogging!

  7. You might be able to get around this and do something clever like just swap out the background image on the home page only. Give this a try as a starting point, I think it looks really cute :)

    body.home {
    	background: url('http://lillipopdotnet.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/lilli-and-santas.jpg?w=1600') center -40px no-repeat;
    }

    It makes the Recent Posts text unreadable though, so you'd probably have to add a background to that section to really make it work.
