    hi all,
    i have created my menu buttons and am uploading content to my pages, no problem there. my question is: is there a way to configure book lite so that when you click a menu button it goes to a unique, individual page? right now it just puts the content in under my homepage header like a blog roll or something. the site is at http://ecguitars.com/ if you click 'about the author' you'll see what i mean. thanks!

    You are using WP.com version of this theme which is also available here at WP.org. It's better to use WP.org version so that you can get theme update automatically (click to update).

    The thing down below is footer widgets. It looks like you haven't set your own widgets, so it displays some defaults.

    Visit this Appearance > Widgets and drag some widgets into the area. You can set a lists of link in there using Custom Nav widget, but you have to setup a menu for it first. Also you can use Text Widget.

    Not sure if you intended to use default permalink, but anyway just so you know that you can set the permalink structure. It's better for SEO.

    So this
    http://example.com/?page_id=35

    would become something like this
    http://example.com/about-the-author

    If you blog, use "Month and name", but could be however you like. Once set, stick to the same structure, no changing back and forth.

    Paul,

    I was able to delete some of the widgets under the header but the following is still occurring:
    * there's a white 'band' under the image that won't go away
    * the name of the page, an 'edit' link, a fancy little divider bar, and comment form
    * I don't want any of that. Just the header image and text on the homepage and unique, individual pages for each menu button.

    Does that make sense? http://ecguitars.com/

    Thanks!

    To disable comments, configure it in Discussion settings AND per post/page setting
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Comments_in_WordPress

    Put this in Appearance > Edit CSS (provided by Jetpack that you already installed).

    article, #secondary { background: none; }
    #respond { display: none; }
    .page .entry-title {
    	position: absolute !important;
    	clip: rect(1px 1px 1px 1px); /* IE7 */
    	clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);
    }
    #main { padding-top: 0; }

    It will help remove comment form header left over, remove the fancy page divider, and visually hide page names. The edit link will only appear when you logged in, so there is no need to do anything with it.

    hi paul. thanks again for your help! that theme just was working as i wanted it to and the mods were getting to be too much of a hassle for me (and you).

    i switched back to the 20-13 theme and used the code you provided and it works great. Now i have only 3 issues left:

    * the fonts are different for each page. so if i click the menu buttons and switch pages i get arial on one and times roman on another. i've deleted the pages, re-written them, and did the whole process over and i still have the same problem.
    * how can i wrap text around images?
    * it now makes sense to have the page title at the top of each text block when you click a menu button. how do i get that back?

    thanks again! david

    Wrapping Text Around Images
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Wrapping_Text_Around_Images

    In RWD, floating image like that is not so popular, it's better to have content aligned in block. If you float it, you will have to make another CSS in media query to unfloat it in small screen (if theme not already done so).

    Markup and id or class name is theme specific. They might share some common class names but you can't expect the same CSS to always work across themes.

    So please open a new thread for it and post in theme specific support forum so it don't get mixed up.

    For purely CSS questions that don't really related to WP theme, please consider CSS forum such as http://csscreator.com/forum
