    Hi guys,

    I am helping a family friend build his floral website and I have no idea what do start with. I got the site registered and everything working but for some reason I cannot find out how to add pictures to the website. I am using the "Mount Everest" theme but want to change the pictures to flowers of course. Any help would be appreciated and sorry if this is a redundant question. I dont even know how to search on this forum =(

    It's a lot to learn at first - but there's lots of good info here:

    For theme-specific questions, it's generally best to post on the theme's sub-forum - I think you are using this one:

    http://wordpress.org/support/theme/catch-everest

    Are you asking about the images for the slider on the home page?

    Thanks for the speedy reply your help is very much appreciated. Yes I am referring to all the pictures for the theme. I want to change them to flower arrangements and change the content as well if that makes any sense.

    I'm not very familiar with that theme - though it looks really lovely, but it appears to use posts and featured images in the slider - so you first need to create posts (4 will fit in the slider) - http://codex.wordpress.org/Writing_Posts

    In those posts insert and image and assign it as a featured image -

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Images

    The go to the theme options --> Featured slider options and assign those posts to the slider.

    I'd also suggest checking out this page for theme help:

    That looks great so far!

    I think the slider is set up as I said above:

    It appears to use posts and featured images in the slider - so you first need to create posts (4 will fit in the slider) - http://codex.wordpress.org/Writing_Posts

    In those posts insert and image and assign it as a featured image -

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Images

    See the featured image box on the lower right side of the posts screen.

    The go to the theme options --> Featured slider options and assign those posts to the slider.
