    I’ve never been happy with the layout of the images in my post. For the life of me – I can’t get them to be arranged in the way I want.
    It’s like I have to delete everything and start over each time I want to edit!
    What should I do?
    Please HELP!!!
    Especially the post ‘Harina’.
    I mean….if I can only get help on one post – that would be it….for now.

    The blog I need help with is lauracurry.com.

    Happy to help with a post! Could you explain a bit more about how you would like the images arranged?

    Hi there, and thanks.
    I would like them arranged as a gallery.
    So – all performance images first group; learning to make bread and making bread second group; pop-up books third; video at bottom of post.

    I’m not sure why I am never successful – maybe expecting too much?
    Also – I’m looking for a designer to help me …. would I be able to find one via this forum?
    thanks!

    I would like them arranged as a gallery.

    Have you tried following the steps here?

    This seems to be what you’re looking for!

    You likely will not find them on this forum as it isn’t used for posting jobs. However, you can post it here:

    So – do I need to delete these images and start over before I arrange them in a gallery?
    I am unable to move them as is….
    thanks

    Correct – you’ll need to first remove the images you currently have entered. Then, you’ll want to start a new gallery with those images instead. That should help you to arrange them in a group format!

    okay – got it. Not hard…just bothersome.
    thanks for your help.

    Not a problem! Let us know if you have any trouble with the gallery setup.

    got the gallery sorted, but I do have a question about the home page.
    I selected a crazy green from the template for the fwd/back arrows for cursor roll over, but the header colors are a forest green.

    How do I make all the roll over the crazy green?
    thanks

    We’ll need to use CSS to change the remaining elements of your site. This bit should do the trick:

    .menu a, .site-info a, .site-title a {
    	color: #c0f924;
    }

    Just copy that whole code and paste it under Appearance -> Customize -> CSS.

    Thanks again!

    Is it possible for me (or someone) to custom design this site? Do I need to use w/p templates?

    Okay – here’s another issue –
    within the posts – the links are the forest green instead of the crazy green.
    How would I change that?

    Thanks!

    You will need to start with a theme here:

    https://theme.wordpress.com/

    From there, you can customize many aspects with CSS. However, we don’t provide custom designs. We do have some awesome tutorials on CSS though!

    If you need a bit of extra help, we have an awesome CSS forum here:

    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization

    within the posts – the links are the forest green instead of the crazy green.
    How would I change that?

    These two additions should change the rest!

    .entry-meta a, a {
    	color: #c0f924;
    }
    
    .entry-title {
    	color: #c0f924;
    }

    Hello!
    I changed the color from the green to a subtle grey, but at the bottom of my page, the green remains.
    Is there a way that I can change all the color to a subtle grey, or whatever color I want?
    Thanks

    Hi there,

    If you’re having trouble making all the CSS changes you want to customize your theme, you can post about that directly in the CSS Customization forum. That’s a great place to get CSS ideas and help from others (including some volunteers with extensive CSS experience) in addition to the resources Jeremey mentioned earlier. :)
