    Hi,

    I’d like to have a static (unclickable) photo for my home page. Also it should be uncropped (not like now)

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is artliving.at.

    You could do that by making your homepage a static page rather than your blog page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ If you use a Custom Menu at the top of your site, you can hide the blog page entirely. That will probably solve the vertical crop, since what is being displayed now is the blog page. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/autofocus/

    If you want to widen the content area, then you’ll have to wait for someone to help you with the CSS.

    Thanks a lot! That worked great. I have a static page now. But i’d like the image to be full width (same width as grey logo area) and unclickable… Any idea how to do that?

    I managed to make it full width, it’s still clickable though…

    There are a couple of ways to achieve this.

    1. Edit your page using the Text tab. Look for this part:

    <a href="http://artlivingvienna.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/img_6659.jpg"><img class=" wp-image-354 aligncenter" title="Louis XVI Kommode" src="http://artlivingvienna.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/img_6659.jpg?w=997&h=664" alt="" width="997" height="664" /></a>

    And remove the link so that you only have your image statement remaining.

    <img class=" wp-image-354 aligncenter" title="Louis XVI Kommode" src="http://artlivingvienna.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/img_6659.jpg?w=997&h=664" alt="" width="997" height="664" />

    2. Remove the link shown for the image in your media library for that page. See this support document to see where that information is located. http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/image-links/

    I recommend you look at the 2 nd way because that is where you can choose to link or not when you are inserting new images into your pages and posts.
