    Hi,

    I just bought your theme as it looks truly amazing. However, I’m finding it hard to replicate the page you showcase in the WordPress demo for the theme at: http://standarddemo.wordpress.com/

    How do I move my header image over to the right hand side of the page like you have done in the demo? Also, how do I insert the text underneath the image with links like you have done too?

    Is it also possible to add different coloured categories like the ones you have on your 8bit site at: http://8bit.io/

    My blog is located at: http://www.tengtoolsuk.com

    Thanks,

    Keith.

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

    The image over on right hand side is the “Personal Image” widget included with Standard. You will find it under “Appearance > Widgets” and just drag it over to your sidebar as the first item.

    Can you explain the “text underneath the image with links” a bit more? Maybe toss us a link to the post on the demo you are talking about?

    The different colored categories are nothing more than Text widgets with some custom CSS, which you will need the Custom Design upgrade to do.

    I got it sorted. Thanks for the reply. I didn’t know about the “Personal Image” widget. Just one or two further questions :)

    Is it possible to include a header image so that it sits across the top of the blog and appears beside the “Personal image”? I’ve tried but it just seems to take up the entire top of the page forcing the “Personal Image” to locate underneath it.

    Also, is it possible to increase the size of the “Personal Image”? I noticed that it’s a lot bigger on the “Standard Demo” page: http://standarddemo.wordpress.com/

    Sorry for all the questions. i’m knew to blogging so still finding my feet.

    Thanks,

    Keith.

    One more thing,

    How did you create the clickable links in the text underneath the “Personal Image” in the Standard Demo?

    Could I get a step by step guide?

    Thanks.

    It is not possible to do the header image / personal image combination you are wanting to do.

    The Personal Image widget is only constrained in size to 300px wide. It can be however tall you want it to be. Just upload a longer image.

    To make clickable links under the Personal Image, you have to use HTML markup, so you will need an < a > tag, like so…
