    Hello, I am totally new to blogging and WordPress and trying to use the 2020 theme.
    I may be a bit dim but can’t see how how to do the most basic things – like how to change the pictures on the home page.
    I have 2020 installed and running on my server.
    Is there a basic step-by-step tutorial for dummies?

    Hello and welcome to WordPress! What images are you trying to change? Do you have the site live on a URL that we can visit to check further?

    Or are you just seeing the images like shown in the demo here:

    Thanks for the reply, yes it is live here https://hboss.co.uk/

    How can I replace the purple images with my own?

    What I was hoping to find was a demo site with a tutorial on customising.

    That page content should be saved as a Page in your admin dashboard labeled as ‘The New UMoMA Opens its Doors’.

    Once you go to edit that page, you should be able to make further modifications to the content that way.

    Thanks, I am slowly getting a feel for the 2020 theme.

    Where can I see the images stored in the default theme – all the pink and grey ones? I can’t see how to replace these with the images I want to use.

    Hi, those images aren’t stored inside of WordPress itself, they are located inside of a folder in the TwentyTwenty theme (/wp-content/themes/twentytwenty/assets/images/)

    So unless you’re able to use a file browser (your hosting provider may have that option available to replace the images) it may be better to just delete the image from page edit screen and then insert a new image into that area to replace it.

    Thanks Jarret, I didn’t realise I only had to ‘DOUBLE CLICK’ on the image to change it !!
    I was selecting it with one click and looking in the ‘panels’ for an ‘EDIT’ option D’oh!

    Just for the sake of completeness, since some folks may find this thread via search, we do have documentation for Twenty Twenty at https://wordpress.org/support/article/twenty-twenty/ 🙂
