    The easiest option you have to change the shapes is to create an image of the shape, then apply that through a background to each <article> element.

    can you please explain in detail what you mean … as i stated above im new to this so your speaking in tongues to me right now. lol thanks it will be much appreciated.

    Which part are you stuck with, creating the image?

    yes, do you mean like edit the photo with photoshop into a heart/diamond shape? and when you say “apply that through a background to each <article> element.” what do you mean?

    do you mean like edit the photo with photoshop into a heart/diamond shape?

    Yeah create them at a ratio of 360×360 so that they can be increased in size if necessary without turning pixelated (in case someone increases the text size).

    Once you’ve made the images create an “img” folder in your Child Theme and put your images in there.

    Then you can reference them in your Child Theme style.css file, e.g: {
     background: url(img/heart.png) no-repeat;
     background-size: cover;

    okay so i’ve made the image into the desired shape and i made a image.php file in my child theme.

    now i’ve copied and paste the code you gave me above but nothing happened… im i suppose to add something else?

    The above code was an example.
    Are you sure you mean you created a image.php file?

    yes i created a image.php file in my child theme.

    The image should be of a file type of “png”, “jpg” or “gif”, and not “php”.

    That image should go in your Child Theme, in a folder named “img” (create that folder if you haven’t it).

    yes, that’s what i meant sorry about that, i made a png image file and made a image.php folder in my child theme. or is it just img?

    Moderator Andrew Nevins


    or is it just img?

    It’s this.

    The folder should be named “img”.

    ok i’ve done that … what code would i use to change the circles into hearts and diamonds?

    i figure it out. ( :

    i figured it out but the only thing is wrong is the heart doesn’t not hold the whole shape… any tweak i can add?
