    Sorry I’m not clear. I want the image that is there now as the header and the logo in place of the title/tagline text. I did it a little bit ago…am I making sense?
    I want both..

    You want a 1000px x 300px image above the header image? You do realize that that is going to mean no one will see anything when they go to your blog but those two images? From a reader’s stand point that is not a good thing. If you want your logo at the top, it needs to be no more than 120px tall by around 500px wide.

    You need to edit that image and crop and resize it.

    Then we can add it above the header image through the CSS.

    Okay what do you think of that?
    Can you see the set up now?
    Should I make it smaller?

    #570591

    Nope, that looks good to me.

    On the wellness naturally image, take it out of the CSS. Edit your home page (the showcase page) and insert that image into the body of the page and “update.” That will keep you from having to do a bunch of adjustments to the “main”.

    Or, you can change #main so it looks like this

    #main {
        background: url("http://integralnatmed.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/keith-sub-header22.jpg") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    height: 65px;
    padding: 65px 0 0;
    }

    Actually stick with the CSS instead of putting the image into the “home” page since that will make sure it shows up on all pages, not just the “showcase” page.

    I’m so thankful for your help.

    So thankful.

    It is super late for me so I have to pause and get some sleep I have five kiddos to tend tomorrow! :)

    God Bless you.

    You are welcome, and this is a new theme and I’m learning on it right along with you.

    #570599

    Well you are amazing!

    A note for you when you come back here. On your body background if you are going to go with the dark grey color, don’t use an image. Declare a background color instead such as below. Your page will load much faster with just a color declaration.

    body {
    background-color: #2F2F2F;
    }

    Thanks.

    Great advice. Thank you.

    One more question for you if you have time:
    If I wanted to create a slide show, similar to a flash slideshow to display as the header, is that possible?

    I’ve seen it on a few other WordPress sites but can’t tell if they are.com or self owned.

    I’m most familiar with Blogger but this is new to me and it is always easier just to ask someone!

    You cannot use flash in a header, but if you prepare a animated gif image that is the exact size needed for the header, that will work. Don’t include too many images in it though as animated gifs get really large really quickly and it will make your pages load slowly.

    #570686

    Oh, one more. Can you have widgets on the sidebar for static pages or just the post feed page?

    I can’t seem to find how to do that. I know I can make a showcase page and any Aside or Link pages will be featured with the Ephemera Widget. But when I do that, I’m getting my most recent post actually posting on my Home Page (static Page) rather than just the link under the Featured Articles (Ephemera Widget) heading. I don’t want posts to go on my home page at all. I just thought I might be able to add some widgets to the page if it was the showcase page without having the posts feed to that page as well.

    Is that making sense?

    #570687

    Do you know of a good site to make animated gif images? I’m sure I could search for one.

    #570689

    No, I’ve never done much with them, but I’m sure that if you do a search you can find either a site online that can do it, or perhaps a freebee program you can download that will do it.
