Hi. I'm new to WP and to CSS.
I've installed root's Trident
template and have been attempting to personalize it. It's been a while since I've designed any new sites and CSS is rather daunting, but I think I've made a good effort at manipulating the code.
I have a few questions.
1. What's up with that #rmenu? I can't find the code to pull the calendar and the links below up to the bottom of the header. Any clues on where to look?
2. I'd like to stick an image at the top of the right menu. I've found a lot of code re:background-image and I've played with the various bits to see what I'd come up with. Nothing seems to accomplish what I am trying to achieve. I understand the "no repeat" snippet and the "padding" bit. What I am trying to do is post a .gif at the top of the right menu, leaving the bg1.gif as is. Basically, an icon over the green background. I've seen two others using the Trident template with pictures in that spot, however, they have sacrificed the colored background. Is there a way to accomplish this? I'm sure there is... somehow.
3. I know I'm going to look completely daft, but... I tried to validate my page at the W3 Consortium, hoping that it would clue me in on where to look for my error. I received the following 3 errors:
Warning: Line 43, column 90: character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data
Warning: Line 43, column 110: character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data
Warning: Line 149, column 125: character "&" is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data
I immediately opened CuteFTP to look for the offending page. I couldn't find a single XML document. Everything is PHP and CSS. *scratching head*
Anyway... thank you root for the lovely template for me to cut my teeth on.
Any help would be appreciated.
If anyone needs specific code snippets, let me know.
