I am attempting my first WordPress theme and am getting around fairly well so far. It is a very minimal theme. Literally just a header and footer that has a slideshow in the header.
So far I've been able to get the header() and footer() to display and insert the slider plugin (Revolution Slider) into the header using a widget and everything seems to work swimmingly.
The next step to this is I would like to add an html5 background to the page in the template (not with a plugin).
I've been able to get the video background working in my base (non-WP template) but adding the code to the WP version of my template does not seem to be working.
I've searched through the codex and found the
add_theme_support( 'html5', array( 'comment-list', 'comment-form', 'search-form' ) );
and added to my functions.php however this doesn't seem to work.
I'm sure there is something I'm missing here but have no idea what.
I'm working on a localhost so can not provide a link but let me know if you need any code to be posted.
Thanks for the support and great documentation to get me this far.
