As a follow up to yesterday’s post about my work’s website, I feel like I should mention how much of a challenge it was adding the background pictures.
It took weeks to figure out.
I could not understand it. The “theme preview” showed a photo so I knew it was possible. But nothing worked! Not adding header images, or background images, or changing the theme. Not directly pasting photos into the post. Not clicking on every button I could find.
My friend came to help me with the website, but pictures stumped her too. She tried Google. Then YouTube. We downloaded plugins, attempted coding, and clicked, clicked, clicked, on every button we could find. Nothing.
Finally, she started calling her friends in IT. None of them knew how to help us. As she attempted to explain what we wanted, she pulled up the website for the coffee shop where she works which has a similar photo banner. She called her boss to find out how she got it.
And the boss told us. No add ons, no plugins, no coding. Go onto the post. Click “Featured image.” Choose a photo. Wallah.
And sure enough, it was that simple.
Technology is confusing.
