    Hi!
    I can’t manage to have the same homepage as in the Demo: I can only change the picture and not add the rest. How can it be done?

    Also, I’ve been trying to add a background picture but I can only see the result when in “Customize”. Otherwise the background image is replaced by a color. Is it because I need to purchase the custom design feature?

    Thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is dd2d.net.

    Hello,

    To have the homepage as in the demo, you will need to create a page and assign it to the homepage template under ‘page attributes’. If you want a header image to appear as in the demo you will need to upload that image to your featured image field from within this page.

    You will then navigate to Appearance > Customize > Front and set that page as the front page for your site. You can then go to ‘Theme’ from within the customizer and insert your information to display on the homepage (the image, name, title, bio etc…).

    You can add a background image by navigating to Appearance > Background. Ideally this image would be 1800x1200px and you would upload it from the ‘Select Image’ option in the ‘Background’ page.

    Thanks,

    Rebecca

    Hi, I have the exact same problem, can’t load a background image. My problem, however is that there is no ‘background’ option under appearance?

    Hi amateuranthropology,

    You can add a background image under Appearance > Customize > Colour. The first option under the tab gives you the option to upload a background image for your site.

    Thanks,

    Rebecca
