My 2011 Theme Image (4 posts)

    I recently installed WP Twenty Eleven and by and large am satisfied with it.
    I do have a problem with the default font with the size of type face, but I can live with that, at least for now.

    However the image is just too large for my liking. See http://www.acornbbs.com
    I substituted my own image but it’s still too large. Question: If I remove the image (notes say that I cannot get it back) what happens to the nav bar? Does it stay where it is? Or does it move up the page?

    I would like to install the same image but in a smaller version.

    Can someone offer some advice, please?

    Are you trying to do like this:
    http://img69.imageshack...acorn.jpg

    If so, access your Dashboard, go to Appearance / Editor and search by #branding img inside the style.css code.

    You'll see this code:

    #branding img {
    	height: auto;
    	margin-bottom: -7px;
    	width: 100%;
    }

    Change that code for this:

    #branding img {
        width: 800px;
        height: auto;
        margin-bottom: -7px;
        margin-left: 70px;
    
    }

    I hope it helps you.

    No! Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues.

    Create a child theme for your customisations. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    Thanks Diogo and thanks Esmi for pointing that out.
    I get nervous when confronted by having to edit code, so I may take time out to read as much as possible about child theme before moving forward.

    You'll be hearing from me. ;-)
