Hi - I have recently downloaded the Atahualpa theme to a site I have had for a couple of years - I wanted something a little more custom built. As a result I have got myself in a bit of a mess. I had a header made by someone at Fiverr - but I don't really like it. I have tried to configure various parts of the theme in the back office but I am struggling to make the theme look professional. I have donated to be a gold member and wonder what help I can get from the forum. My website which currently looks awful is www.your-healthy-options.com.

Any help would be gratefully received

regards

Janet

The first thing you need to do is decide what you want the site to look like - background color, fonts, images, where to put things one sidebar or four, custom menus or the automatic ones. All of that is a personal choice. What I like, you might not like.

The best thing to do is play with the options and see what they do and if you like the effect. One thing I notice is the right sidebar is really long on the 'Fat Burning Furnace' page since the text is too short, maybe moving some of the widgets to the left sidebar would make it look better. But once again, it comes down to what do you like.

Thanks for that - though I think my main problem is understanding the meaning of all the things in the back office. Sometimes it is clearly explained but other times it seems as though a level of technical understanding is required to follow through the suggestions.

I am also confused because I have made some alterations that I am sure I have done correctly but are not showing when I check the site.

I have looked at the other sites with the same theme and they seem to have reconfigured things like the items in the side bar. For example I would like to get rid of the grey bar that is acting as a bullet on the side bar under recent posts but can't find where I do that

I wondered if there might be a beginners video that showed you around the back office??

Also just wondering what extras there are for Gold members

regards

there is a woman who wrote a 'Atahualpa 101' here name is Carol Smith and if you do a google search 'carol smith atahualpa' you can get her book.

gold memers - little faster response from moderators - access to the gold forum tutorials

in general look thru the FAQ - Atahualpa section

Thanks - I had a look at the FAQ but they didn't cover the issues I currently have. I couldn't even understand some of them.....

So where are the gold forum tutorials??

regards
