Hi designsimply, Thank you for your comments, but I'd be grateful if you would remove the thread that you commented on and then closed, after having completely grasped the wrong end of the stick and misread what I said, as I did not get a chance to respond to put the record straight. I found that quite upsetting considering all the other stress I am being put through trying to get answers to two simple questions. I wonder if you would like someone to do that to you? I would be grateful if you would remove that thread in its entirety.
I have not changed anything. I have not asked many questions at once. I have not tried to keep my blog secret. I have not tried to get a re-design on the cheap. In fact I have not done any of the many things that I have been accused of by whoever.
All I have done, quite simply is post over and over and over and over again - over a period of some time - in an attempt to get two simple answers to two simple questions.
I have not done this because I have nothing better to do, or to annoy anyone. I simply need to get the answer to two simple questions which I must have asked about 30 times on the forums here and also in futile attempts to get the answers privately.
I have received quite a few insults and quite a bit of rudeness and what borders on libellous - and certainly defamatory - accusations thrown at me, but not actually received a complete answer to my two simple questions that has enabled me to resolve the problems.
BTW I have not changed the template from the outset on this blog - although anyway I did think we were supposed to be able to do that? Anyone?
I'll forget about the menus on the Oxygen theme, and just see if it humanly possible to get the answer that I have asked for over and over again. Or is someone else going to come along and criticise, put down and falsely accuse me and so on and so forth, rather than give me an answer?
I’ll be very patient and say it again:
I do not know CSS and I have no time or need to learn it, and I would simply like to remove the shaded background from my welcome post which I never put there and which spoils the front page.
No putdowns, criticisms, false accusations, or any such similar things are requested or required, I just ask for a simple answer to a simple question.
I have been given some code but it has various spaces in it, and I have tried various combinations of taking the spaces out and where to put the code, none of which have worked on a permanent basis.
I have also heard that people fix it, but it comes back again as it has been overrriden by something else and so it needs to have ‘important’ tagged on the end of it?
For the time being, I have take the sticky designation off the post and await a resolution of this problem, hopefully before 2014.
