Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

I have used the code in http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...ckground+image

Here's the url: http://lanaholmes.com

I want the large image to be behind the text for the page -- right now it's covering up the text.

I added:

<img id="lana" src="http://lanaholmes.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/Lana-Holmes-Header-1000.jpg" style="position:absolute; left:20px; top:128px;

in the Body Top of HTML/css inserts


img#lana {display:none;}
body.home img#lana {display: block;}

in the CSS inserts block at the bottom

I'd also like to get rid of the light background and have added:

body.home #middle {background: #339999;}

at the very bottom of the CSS inserts -- but still have a light background plus it changed every other page as well

I'd like to know:
1. How to have the image be behind the text
2. How to get rid of the light background (configured in the posts/page body box right now) on the home page only

Try setting postition:relative and z-index: 10 to #lg_home_txt to show the text. Also try playing with relative instead of absolute positioning for some of those elements as absolute positioning can make things a bit more complex in certain situations.

That worked!!

In fact, I took it out of background because it wasn't moving with the header, and put it into the page using the same code -- perfection for both the text and the picture with a minor adjustment in moving it left with -20px to compensate for margin and padding.

Thank you
