Support » Fixing WordPress » Images and sidebar(beginner)

  • Hi,
    I have searched the forum, but i was not exactly clear on how to do this. Also i am in an urgency right now. (Beginner here) My website is :
    I have a few doubts-

    1. If i want to place any background image at any (x,y) position with desired dimensions, how can i do this? I mean i do understand the matter going in css(which will control the position and dimensions), but what exactly needs to go in my php file? The code?

    2. I want to shift sidebar a little more right on my website, than it is right now. I have tried playing with the related numbers in css, but unsuccessful. Any ideas would be appreciated?

    Generically speaking: For both of those questions you do want to play with the CSS. Use a tool such as Firebug to identify the CSS that needs updating and create a child theme and make your CSS changes there.

    More specifically, you are using a commercial theme and we do not have access to those theme files. Don’t want access either, you really need to contact the theme vendor and ask them for support.

    Support from them was part of what you paid for when you purchased that theme. Also you are running an older 1.5 version of that theme, the current version on their site is 1.9.

    Also, don’t bump. 😉

    Well i did that 🙂
    So i tried this-(since i want the image around the footer) so in footer.php, i wrote( copied similar to theme ‘logo’):

    <?php $logo1 = (get_option('evolution_logo') <> '') ? esc_attr(get_option('evolution_logo')) : get_template_directory_uri() . '/images/trees.png'; ?>
    <img src="<?php echo $logo; ?>" alt="<?php echo esc_attr(get_bloginfo('name')); ?>" id="logooo"/>

    And in my style.css

    img#logooo { max-width: 100%; display: block; height: auto; }

    No success 🙁 what am i doing wrong?

    For background images, you don’t need to do anything in the php file — it’s all in the CSS file. Perhaps this will be helpful:

    But as Jan said, commercial themes are not supported here — so you’ll need to go to the theme vendor for help.

    (Or use a theme that is supported here… there are many great choices here: )

    sorry, no reply from me. I am totally new, and looking at li ol and ul, heaven no clue! I would like to know how to insert titles into my images,sorry it may be so small. I don’t know how to make my page look stronger ‘calendar or weather stuff’. Please help, I am very greatful.
    Thanks, Anke

    You can ask this, but within your own thread.
