Changing the appearance of the latest Pixel release (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I just installed the most recent release of the Pixel theme. I love it but there are some things I'd like to change and I'm not too familiar with CSS.

    If you check out the site, you'll see links in the upper right as well as right above where my posts will appear. What I'd like to do is remove all of the links in the top-right except for "skip to content" and make the links above the posting area feature *just* the pages I've created. I'd like to make it a navigation bar, effectively.

    Also, would anyone know how I'd go about putting in a custom header?

    Finally, I'd like to move all of the footer areas if possible. At least, take out the widgets since I'd prefer them on the sidebar. In the admin panel, under widgets, the footer areas appear empty though, so I can't even drag-drop them out.

    Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated, since I'm just now moving to my own domain and would like to direct my readers to it as soon as possible.

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    1. Looking at that top nav bar, the only non-page link (apart from the Skip link) is the search link. Edit the template file for that menu and remove:

    <li>
    <a href="#searchform">search</a>
    </li>

    2. Upload a image (called header.jpg) that is 350px wide by 80 px high to the theme's images folder. Then edit style.css and replace:

    #header #logo {
    float:left;
    margin:25px 0 0;
    padding:0;
    width:350px;
    }

    with:

    #header #logo {
    float:left;
    margin:25px 0 0;
    padding:0;
    width:350px;
    background:url(images/header.jpg) no-repeat top left;
    }

    3. Edit footer.php and remove wp_list_bookmarks(), get_searchform() and wp_get_archives. You'll also need to remove some text that is displayed in the footer along with these template tags but that should be pretty obvious when you get into the file.
