[resolved] Default Info does not appear on newly installed theme (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I recently installed a new theme for my blog and all my posts and information updated correctly, except for my site name and the site description. It still shows the 'fake' information that the theme displayed before I installed it.

    Does anyone know anything I can do to get my information to display correctly?
    Thank you very much.

    -Hanna

    it might be an image?

    without a link to your site, this is only a guess ...

    Here is the link to my site:

    http://www.stumpthepooch.com

    The "Veterinarian Blog" information is what was displayed for the example site. I have used other themes and this information automatically updated with them, so I'm not sure why it's not doing that now.

    both the title and the description are background images.

    two possibilities:

    1.
    if you are good with graphics, find these images in the /images folder of the theme ( logo.png and description.gif ) and 'photoshop' your own title and description onto them; then re-upload to the same location.

    2.
    or edit style.css of your theme, and find:

    .logo h1 { width:334px; height:44px; font-size:2.1em; display:block; color:#fff; cursor:pointer; background:url(images/logo.png) no-repeat 0 0; overflow:hidden; text-indent:-1000em;}
    	.logo h1:hover { text-decoration:none;}
    	.description { width:227px; height:10px; background:url(images/description.gif) no-repeat 0 0; margin:-4px 0px 0px 9px; overflow:hidden; text-indent:-1000em;}

    remove the background styles and the text-indent; so these styles look like:

    .logo h1 { width:334px; height:44px; font-size:2.1em; display:block; color:#fff; cursor:pointer; overflow:hidden; }
    	.logo h1:hover { text-decoration:none;}
    	.description { width:227px; height:10px; margin:-4px 0px 0px 9px; overflow:hidden; }
