[Resolved] I am a beginner

  • I just love this theme, and it will be perfect for the website I want to make.

    I have never ever used WordPress before, I am such a beginner.
    And, oh what a beginner… I cant even get this simple thing to work.

    I downloaded the theme, great. But I can not get to look like I want. I may need a WordPress-theme-Spun-for-dummies-tutorial, I know (but when I upload a different theme it work ok).

    But I really want the “circles”. Cant get that to work. I made several different pages and thought the “circle thing” to solve it self, but no. And I really dont understand what went wrong.

    Do I need to upload picures direct into the “circles”? And where do I do that?

    Anyone out there who can explain like you would to a small child? I dont know any of the lingo so to speak..

    http://www.littleoldlady.se/

    And of course I would like it to look like the Theme prewiev… http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/spun

    I am working on a MacBook Pro and Safari.

    Thanx 🙂

    You have to work with posts

    each post that you write down and set a featured image go to look like theme demo.

    1- add new post
    2- set featured image (on roght down you can find it)
    3- pubblish post
    4- look the web page

    finish
    This themes like a lot of themes work with posts…

    WOW!

    So if I am thinking correctly, this theme works more like a “blog” then (fine with me).. with posts and not pages?!

    If I add pages they will be at the menu at the top?

    Anyways, THANK YOU!

    Oh, I have another problem. Now that I have a pro with me!

    The text (picture) at the top left side. Any way to get it big an gorgeous? It is supposed to be the title of the webpage / my business.

    yes true!
    you create amenu for the page and u can see it on the right top

    to create menu:

    1- cretae the pages ( page 1, page 2 page 3…)
    2- apparence-menu-add menu (crete it)
    3- use the menu like primary menu on the left u can see the option
    4- save
    5- look your web

    the color are very light..maybe better to change it to see it better!

    For the dimension of logo u have to change code of css:
    apparence-edit

    find on row 673:
    .site-title {
    font-family: Playfair,Baskerville,”Times New Roman”,Times,serif;
    font-size: 5.4rem;
    font-style: italic;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 1em;
    margin: 0;
    text-transform: none;
    }

    HERE U HAVE JYST CHANGE 2.4 to 5.4 or 6 or 9 or what u want

    save it

    look uor web

    sorry! u are using picture and not text!

    u have to modify style.css

    #masthead img {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 1em;
    max-height: 200px;
    width: 400px;
    }

    like this u go to have a image of 400×200
    u have to upload of course aimg of this diemnsion

    I still dont get the circles thing to work. Saved 3 posts, with featured images. They don’t show at all.

    My pages however, show in the “menu” (havent created one my self yet), but looks like a blog on the page..

    Could you please take another look?

    🙂

    littleoldlady.se

    settings- readings-
    you have set on:
    Front page displays
    this:

    Your latest posts

    OMG!

    That sounds complex, Ill give it a go though! But, the theme has images in the demo, is there a easier way?

    Or should I try with text first so I can easier find the “place” in the code so I can change it later?
    I am not good with code, have never been :/

    Will look up the font page display thing now 🙂

    yes try with text before bettere and easier….

    Yeay! The pictures are showing!!!

    yes i saw it!
    nice now second step
    the logo like a text!!!
    come on change 2.4 to 8 and it is ok

    .site-title {
    font-family: Playfair,Baskerville,”Times New Roman”,Times,serif;
    font-size: 2.4rem;
    font-style: italic;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 1em;
    margin: 0;
    text-transform: none;
    }

    The logo is a picure, I am not sure if the Theme will accept my prefered font.

    site title, will look up up in the source and try my best 🙂
