    Currently, the top 3 buttons (Give, Advocate, Volunteer) are in the header right widget. If you resize the page, rather than the buttons resizing, their alignment changes. I have uploaded the images through FTP and they do not have a size indicated. I need for them to reduce in size as the page size reduces.

    If you want the images to reduce in size with the page, you need to create different CSS rules targeted at at different screen sizes. See http://www.studiopress.com/design/website-respond-mobile-devices.htm Setting them as background images will not change their size with screen size.

    Thank you for your help. I did set up a different CSS style for each of the navigation elements I needed an image for. I also changed themes to the Corporate theme. Here is the outcome: http://unitedwayroane.org/2013/. The corporate theme seems to be a little more responsive to smaller screen sizes. I will keep your notes. I really appreciate your taking the time to respond and I’m sure there will come a time when I need them.
