Theme doesn't look like demo theme

  1. Using the theme "Stay". I have tried using multiple themes to test if my blog would match the demos, and they all look very different... which makes it quite difficult to pick a theme too. It seems like you need to have some CSS knowledge just to get it to look like the model, which as a basic user I am hoping that's not the case. Can someone please help to adjust my blog so that it has one large picture on the homepage and no columns? You have my permission to log into my account and adjust it, if you're able to. I was hoping this message would reach the wordpress staff, and am grateful for advice from whomever has it:) Thank you for your help.

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

  2. The Stay theme seems to be a difficult theme for a lot of bloggers to comprehend the workings of. Here's a link to the detailed theme description:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/stay/
    Scroll down to "Home Page Template"
    See also Live demo site here http://staydemo.wordpress.com/

    You will need to follow the instructions to make the theme to look like the one in the demo. The demo is using the "Home page template" which cycles through select top level pages on your site. Create a page called for example "Home" and then set that page as the static front page for your site and create another page fro example "blog" for your posts to appear on.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page. To do that create two pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    Note: The theme has a featured page slider and image size is at least 960 wide. Ideal width for the slider is 1200px.
