    Hi there,

    Thank you for your question. I’d be happy to help.

    This isn’t a known issue or one I’m able to replicate but hope to take a closer look.

    Have you added an image for your header from your Theme Options?

    Hi
    yesterday after hours of playing around I took a break and when I returned it was up and running? I was amazed! So now I am on to cleaning up the home page, I have two home buttons and need to dump one?
    thanks for the reply

    This double home button thing is costing me a lot of time and research. There must be an easier way to track down the solution? Any ideas? Scrollider Express theme.

    I solved this by creating a new menu that I named “Zero Menu” and proceeded to empty it of all of its links. Then, I assigned that menu to the area where I wanted none (in my case, the header image overlay). It worked for me.

    Well it worked, thanks!

    Now another question. How do I get rid of the white outline around all the photos? Or at least reduce it to a narrow border?

    Also, reduce the white META box and make the photos bigger?

    Hey again,

    Thank you Jeremy for helping with the original issue.

    Now another question. How do I get rid of the white outline around all the photos? Or at least reduce it to a narrow border?

    Do you have the CSS upgrade from WP.com?

    http://en.wordpress.com/products/custom-css/

    If you do, this will get rid of the white border around photos:

    .entry-content img {
    border: none !important;
    }

    Also, reduce the white META box and make the photos bigger?

    You could try:

    #primary {
    width: 74%;
    }
    #secondary {
    margin-top: 0;
    width: 25%;
    }

    You’ll need to insert larger images then.

    Remember you can do this from WP Dashboard -> Settings -> Media.

    Hope this helps, thanks again!

    I went to Settings media but did not see where to input the code?

    .entry-content img {
    border: none !important;
    }

    What is the procedure to add

    .entry-content img {
    border: none !important;
    }

    To the CSS sidebar? Tick, Don’t use the theme’s original CSS? I just dropped it right in and saved and no luck?

    Check out this new onLine University course about CSS

    http://www.f1websitedesign.com/tutorials/css-tutorials/basics/basics-of-css/chapter2/chapter2.6.php

    It is written in plain English but I still don’t know how or where to apply the code?

    CSS is a language that works with HTML documents to define the way content is presented. The presentation is specified with styles that are placed directly into HTML elements, the head of the HTML document, or separate style sheets. But where are these places they are referring to? How and where do I actually add the new Style sheets? I am sure there is a simple answer to this and once I get it I can carry on customizing the site. I hope! Thanks

    Hey again,

    Apologize for the delay and hope to answer your questions.

    — I went to Settings media but did not see where to input the code?

    You’ll want to enter this in the Custom CSS field from the CSS upgrade:

    http://en.wordpress.com/products/custom-css/

    — What is the procedure to add

    .entry-content img {
    border: none !important;
    }

    To the CSS sidebar? Tick, Don’t use the theme’s original CSS? I just dropped it right in and saved and no luck?

    That should remove the border from your content area images. Just tested in Firebug and did the trick. Are you adding this to your Custom CSS field?

    Thanks again Max, let me know if you still have any issues adding this.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi again, I am still playing around with it but will not domain map our old site’s domain name over until I have got a handle on these new features! Thanks Max

    This is what I have in the CSS box in Customize and I still have the white border around the photos.
    #primary {
    width: 50%;
    }

    #secondary {
    margin-top: 0;
    width: 30%;
    }

    .entry-content img {
    border: none!important;
    }

    New question? When I open the site with an ipad, a follow box is there and even after complying it stays on the pages. How do I get rid of it?
