I'm new to WP and so this whole theme/plugin/widget thing was/is a bit overwhelming. In the end I decided to try your theme because it's developed from a teaching standpoint and appears to be more of a labor of love than most others.
So I'm onto my first task, that of putting my logo into the header. I created and fully sized an image for the header. The first try, a png file with transparent background came in a black background .. I guess from an image converter. The second attempt, a bmp file with a white background came in as such in the preview window BUT in the actual page it loads grey, and the headline texts are there too.
Any ideas as to what I'm bumping ino here? I'm suspecting it might be that there is a black image file from the menu that is laying over or behind the header graphic.
I'm using Varietal and there is no background image in use. Also I have not setup any menu yet.
Thanks for any help!
