Unwanted element on front page and home button weird (7 posts)

    Here's my site: http://www.upstreammobile.com

    Okay, I switched to a business template. I like it alot - colorway. Still working with it but two things I just can't figure out. There was this lovely-but-I-don't-want-it box that overlays the "home top feature image". You can see it if you look, it says "Beauty at its best...." How do I get rid of it??

    Also, it's like there are two homepages. There is the default one which I'm working to revise. Then there is my page "why upstream?" which no longer comes up. You click it and it shows the home page. I don't get it at all.

    Would one of you wordpress gurus help me? I'm trying to get my business website up and running.

    Appearance -> Editor and select style.css

    Find

    .slide .slide-content.entry {
        bottom: 40px;
        font-size: 13px;
        left: 0;
        padding: 10px 20px;
        position: absolute;
        width: 300px;
    }

    replace with

    .slide .slide-content.entry {
        bottom: 40px;
        display: none;
        font-size: 13px;
        left: 0;
        padding: 10px 20px;
        position: absolute;
        width: 300px;
    }

    Sorry, I am so new to all of this. Where would I find that? In editor where it warns me "do not touch"?

    Also, they look exactly alike - what is being replaced and the replacement coding. I've looked at every element. What is the difference?

    I apologize for being a novice!!

    You are adding this line

    display: none;

    Duh! (Said to myself, not to you.)

    It worked! Thank you! Thank you!

    Now, any clues about my 2nd button taking me to the home page? If I select "edit page," I get what I'm expecting. But live, my "why" button takes me to the home page content while still showing via the highlight on the menu button that I'm on "why". How weird is that?

    Because you have Settings -> Readings and front page set to a static page called Why Upstream?

    That's my guess

    Okay, incredibly smart WP Bum. I really like the 4 photos on the front page of my template. But I don't really have time at the moment to mess with them.

    Is there a way to turn off that whole section of the template, leaving my logo and my graphic at the top and the customer quote at the bottom but just turn off the 4 home page feature fotos and their descriptions FOR NOW with the option to input them again later without starting from scratch again? I like them and am planning things in my mind for those 4 spots, but I'm a sole proprietor (SOLE being the key word) and have to get after my business as well as do web design.

    If you want to see the website as is to see what I'm referring to, it's http://www.upstreammobile.com

    Thank you!!
