    Dear Caroline,

    I have recently installed your Spun theme - it is beautiful and exactly what I was looking for! Thank you for creating it!

    Are you able to tell me how to:

    1) show as many blog post bubbles on the homepage?
    2) how do I prevent the header from from fading out? I would like it to stay a solid permanent colour.

    Thank you for your help!

    1) Not sure what you mean by 'as many blog post bubbles'

    2) Use a child theme so you don't break your theme or lose any changes when the theme gets updated and add:

    #masthead {
      opacity: 1;
    }

    Hi Jose,

    Thanks for your help!
    The blog post bubbles I am talking about look like this:
    http://carolinethemes.com/2012/11/04/spun/
    My website shows only 10 bubbles per page. I would like to show all if possible.

    Also, what is a child theme and how do I use it?

    Thanks again!

    Gotcha! The 'bubbles' are the posts. You can control that by going to Settings > Reading and changing 'Blog Pages show at most' to how ever many you would like to display. :)

    Child Themes are a great way to customize a theme without breaking it. You create a new folder and in it you have a style.css file with:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Spun Child
    Description:    Child theme for Spun
    Author:         Your name here
    Template:       spun
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    @import url( "../spun/style.css" );

    Then you can add any CSS rules to the newly created child theme without breaking the parent theme.

    Hope that helps a little. :)

    Thanks so much for all these suggestions and help! Your tips for opacity and the number of posts were page helped and both my problems are fixed!

    Jose,

    You've been so helpful, can I ask you another question?

    The same theme as above (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uEkgX490E4)allows you to add your author photo which shows up in a small square at the top left of the home page (beside the title of your blog). Would you know how to make that image appear as a circle (like the blog post circles)?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Hi, love the spun site but for some reason all the font has changed and I have no idea how to get them back. Please help! It looked so much nicer with the original fonts.
