    Hi there,

    I just relaunch my Homepage. First I used the magazine theme but I wanted a responsive theme. So I use metro theme to figure it out.

    The next problem I had I wanted to use a slider. So I use the Genesis Responsive Slider Plugin.

    Take a look:

    Hope you like it. If there is something wrong, please tell me.

    Nice looking site!

    A few questions?

    How to you get the page a little bit transparent?

    Where did you get the background picture from?

    How do you get a full page logo across the top?

    Many Thanks

    Roger,

     

    How to you get the page a little bit transparent?

    .footer-widgets, #wrap { background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.80); margin: 2rem auto; max-width: 1080px; overflow: hidden; }

    The rgba includes the standard red, green, blue with an alpha channel. An alpha channel sets the transparency level. He has it at 80% which provides the transparency level.

     

    How do you get a full page logo across the top?

    .header-image #title a {
        background: url(‘images/header.png’) no-repeat;}

    You will also need to adjust the  min-height for your #header and header-image from the default 87px to the height of your image. Full screen headers are 1080px wide.

    Hope that helps.

     

    Jennifer

    GREAT JOB!!!!! massive congratulations!

    questions :)

    How do you create the footer widget to look like that – as a separate module?

    also how do you get the posts to be in modules like that?

    :)

    thanks. In the footer I use two Textwidgets and the RSS Widget…nothing more.

    The RSS is from another homepage (includes Feedburner)

    The grey footer itself I made with simple edits.

    ;-)

    It’s awesome! Really interesting that you changed it from Magazine to Metro? Why did you that for exactly? I’m planning the same thing with http://www.dutchreview.com
