Appearance in customize differs from live appearance

    Hi! I’m new to this, so forgive me for not knowing some of the language.

    In my customize template, my Largo website (I thought) should appear with a left hand vertical bar—“menu” at top left, and a photo I inserted in the “background” image that appears static at the left as you scroll down.

    Instead, the live appearance of the site is everything but that. Is there something I’ve clicked to hide the left vertical “background” static bar?
    Thanks,
    Alison

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Addendum: I think what I am asking about is the image that is referred to as “background” that is part of the left-hand side “featured” part of the website. I tinkered with the “featured” section in customize, thinking if I unclicked or clicked display tags with.. options, then my left hand side static image would return. So basically I have inadvertently hidden the left hand side that Largo blogs like https://wellbeinglive.wordpress.com/
    do have on the left hand side..
    Thanks!

    Hi Alison,

    Thanks for reaching out! I see you got the background image on the left hand side to work. Now once you have 2 or more posts that are tagged with the featured tag you have chosen that will become a slider.

    These docs are helpful too if you haven’t already taken a look:

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Ohhhhh! So I need to designate the posts whose images should be included in order to see the left hand side at all!

    So if I tag it as featured, the base background image will also appear, eh? I’ll poke around on that…

    Yea, those link will help :)

    The background only shows when you don’t have featured posts assigned. You may see a glimpse of the background as the slider revolves.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
    Have a great night!

    Hm…I don’t see the left-hand side background image when I look at my blog.
    But…
    I was able to make the featured content (also part of the background image, right?) visible with their own images…the last part of this issue is getting it to appear as a vertical slider on the left hand side of the screen. Currently the featured content “slider” is actually horizontal, across the top, above the header.

    Ok, the link you sent is really helpful for lots of things I wasn’t sure about..but I think I’m still missing the way to make the background image vertical left instead of horizontal top.

    I know I’m missing it!!!

    Hi Alison,

    Ok so the background image is only shown if you are not utilizing the featured post slider. Since you are now using that you won’t see the background.

    The image I believe you have been changing for the ‘background image’ is the Header image. But the header image will show something like this: http://lift.d.pr/16qpT/3pHwrZ6s

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Ok, so the header image is what I’d like to appear vertically on the left hand side. It is horizontal at the top when I go to my blog on both a laptop and iPad.
    How do I do that?
    Thanks!

    Funny.. I just went back to the blog and both the featured post image and background show.
