Image resolution & Removing Text Widget

    Hi,

    I am trying to create my own portfolio. I really liked the simple grid style achievable with Melody.

    However, I am confused by all these add ons.

    All I want is imagery and a title.

    1. I can’t find an on/off selection for the “Text Widget” that appears on the project pages. I don’t want any sidebar of any sort.

    2. I thought I had followed your instruction for all images to be 635 (x 1200). I’ve set the height of all my images to 635px and saved at 300dpi jpg. I keep the high resolution because no matter what platform I have used in the past, this was the only way to keep the quality. Not I’m seeing pixelation in my images. Any suggestions to correct this?

    3. Can you also clarify that if I upload all my projects to my “WORK” page, they’ll appear on the homepage as a click-through link?

    I am building this site to find work so a quick response would be greatly appreciated. :-)

    Thanks,
    Zoe

    The blog I need help with is zoemade.com.

    Hi there,

    All the theme options can be found under Customize button next to Themes, then Theme Options.

    1. From the above location, you can hide the sidebar. Here’s what it looks like: https://wordpress.com/theme/melody/setup#site-intro

    2. 300dpi won’t make a difference with the final image on the web. You won’t see any different from a 72dpi image and you’re saving on image size which is important for mobile devices. If you want to make sure images aren’t pixelated, you only need a larger image size. As for Melody, the minimum for Featured Images is 1400px wide by 740px high.

    3. If you’re using the portfolio template, then all projects will show on the homepage.

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you need more clarifications.
