responsive twenty ten is not responsive? (6 posts)

    Does this also make the background image responsive? If so, is there a special way you have to code it in?

    I'm using a local WordPress installation with XAMPP. Would that affect how the plugin works?

    Hey there,

    By background image do you mean the one in the header? If so the one in the header should just have it's right side removed as the window get's smaller.

    Are you after this header image actually scaling down?

    Ta,

    To clarify- there is not an actual background image in the original twenty ten, but it's easy to insert a background image (under 'appearance' in the admin panel) and that's what I'm talking about.

    I'm creating child themes and using that to teach myself about theme development- so admittedly this may not be the easiest/best way to do what I'm thinking. I actually eliminated the header image (well, within the admin panel I just went to appearance>>header and clicked 'remove header image'). Then I limited the menu's width to 400px (#access .menu-header ul, div.menu ul {width:400}). I also added a third column (two sidebars).

    With the background image, it's easy to tile it, or you can just put a single large-ish image back there with a background color behind it. Those options work for *most* designs, but, I'm just thinking it would be neat to have a (fixed) background image that automatically fills the screen.

    Hey again mmusil,

    Thanks for the update... I see what you're trying to do now.
    I think you will need to add some CSS for this.
    Do you have a site I can have a look at where this is the case? If so I should be able to supply you with the CSS to do what you want.

    Ta,
    Todd

    Todd- thank you so much for all your help! You can (kinda) see what I'm doing at http://www.skiosho.com/. I actually just uploaded it from my local XAMPP wordpress installation, and the second sidebar went all wonky, but you should still be able to see what I'm talking about.

    Thanks again!

    Hey again,

    Yeah I can see what you're up to.
    I think you actually need to do is use the background-size CSS on the wrapper.

    Ta,
    Todd
