Getting Rid of the Dots/Adding a footer for widgets/Size BAckground

  • First of all…I really like the theme very much… and I am quiet new to WP!

    Right now I am working on with the theme not using a header.
    That means that I set up a background pics and put up some widgets in the sidebar which show up nicely.
    My idea for now is to not post anything except of maybe videos or soundlcoud files…
    my probl: at the end of the post there are these grey dots as a space holder I guess..can’t find the code to hide them
    How can I add a widget into the footer area..
    Where is the code to adjust the height and width of my background image? Can’t seem to find it…
    I hope it is ok that I asked several questions on one thread!!!
    Thanks

    Thanks, I’m glad you like the theme!

    1) You’ll find the dividers in the style.css file under the .hentry:after selector. To remove it, you could just set the selector to display: none in your child theme or a custom CSS plugin (like Jetpack).

    2) You can register a new sidebar in a child theme’s functions.php, then display it with get_sidebar(). For a step-by-step tutorial, it’s probably easiest to Google “How to add a sidebar to a WordPress theme” or similar — lots of helpful articles out there that can explain it better than I can.

    3) Controlling a background image’s proportions can be done with the background-size CSS property, you’d probably apply it to the body.custom-background selector.

    It worked…Thanks Caroline
