Hello!

I had a designer do customization for me on the atahualpa theme, now I'm on my own and loosing my mind. I have been trying to design and most of the time when I add a new image or text everything else gets thrown around. I cant get it to look the way I want it to look. Im sure you understand this is very frustrating and I desperately need help. If I change the settings will that allow me to place images/text anywhere...? If so, where and how do I change settings..? Does this theme have columns and if so are they removable? How much is possible with this theme and what are the limitations? How do I replace images/text in a controllable way without everything else getting thrown around? Does anyone have any tips/tricks/pointers for me? Thank you very much in advance to anyone who can help me out and make me understand.

I'm sorry to say this but even with Atahalpa (like any theme) you need to be familiar with the way positioning of images and text work within WordPress. You can't just drag pictures to where you want them etc as you found out. Could you please put a link to your site so we could see some of the issues. You should probably also check out the wordpress.org site for tutorials etc just to get a bit more info on how all this works.

I'm glad you asked the question and I hope you didn't think I was putting you off. To answer some of your questions though.
  • There is no setting in Atahulapa that allows you to put the pictures anywhere. It is just like any other theme in that regard.
  • There are no columns unless you count the sidebars as columns. You have to use tables, CSS, or plugins to create columns within a post or page.
  • This theme is VERY configurable but takes some knowledge of php, css, and html to get the full benefit.
  • The way to replace text or images in a controllable way is to get familiar with CSS and HTML to at least a small extent.
Flynn has done a great job of documenting within the theme itself. I would suggest you start looking through all the various sections and "experiment". If you can put up a test site and play around with that. For me that is the best way to learn then when you run across a specific issue with Atahualpa you can post it here.
