Theme change problems

  1. Im using the 'Oxygen' theme background. According to the description the secondary sidebar should have a black background but when i check my site it doesnt appear. As well under the header for the theme 'Oxygen' it appears as though you can have pictures and thumbnails. I've been trying to figure it out for quite some time adjusting where the widgets are placed as I thought that may have something to do with it but I have had no luck so far. Can you explain to me how I can have pictures under my header just like in the example of the theme for 'Oxygen' and how I can also have a black background for the links on my primary sidebar located on the left side of my page for this theme. Thank you.

    It's not the secondary sidebar that has a black background it's the secondary menu.

  3. 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. ...

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 450 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/
    Modules to unhide:
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format*, Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments**, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper
    Page – Likes and Shares, Page Attributes, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments**, Page Revisions, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails

  4. how I can also have a black background for the links on my primary sidebar located on the left side of my page for this theme.

    You must purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/ and do the required CSS editing to make color changes http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/

  5. Cool, thanks alot for your help. Im still very 'green' with blogging and using the different options as you can tell.

  6. Just work slowly through each step a step at a time and remain calm and you will do fine. :)
