My site is here: http://www.trendskitchens.co.nz/wordpress/
My question is how do I merge the content area and featured content area (the photo) together? So that I can have one photo across the whole width of the page (but maintain the same height of image as it is now). I don’t need the content area for text.
And second question is, is it possible to turn the responsive feature off for this responsive theme? (it’s because I have tables on some pages and the responsive feature is cutting off the tables in smaller devices such as phones and tablets :P )
Thank you very much again!July 25, 2013 at 12:48 am #112971
This css would do that.
background: url(http://www.trendskitchens.co.nz/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/index-page-photo.jpg) no-repeat;

sorry to hijack the thread but I put that code directly into the style.css file and commented out the entire #featured section and I saw no change. Should I have left that other section like it is and added this code to it or added your code on a new line? Im looking to do what the OP would like to do. Take out the text and image and make it one big image.
Thanks!July 25, 2013 at 12:56 pm #113186
First, please see http://cyberchimps.com/guide/adding-custom-css/
But, you may also want to make sure to clear all caches after adding CSS.July 25, 2013 at 1:20 pm #113203
excellent!! i just wanted to make sure i was working the right way. Ill be installing a child theme tonight so as to not overwrite it with updates.

Hi Ulrich, thanks for your help.
I tried the code you gave me. It worked in letting the image run across the whole width of the featured content area, but when I took out the text in the content area, the whole featured content area shrunk vertically thus cutting off most of the image. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
(ps. I have commented out your css code for now since the page is running live.)
Thank you!!July 25, 2013 at 5:52 pm #113257
And also how do you add the php to the child theme?
I tried just copying and paste the two codes into my child theme css but am I suppose to put the php code in there as well?
Or do I need to create a child theme php file?
Thanks!!July 26, 2013 at 4:38 am #113353

I, too, am seeing the same results as cpan when adding the code.July 26, 2013 at 8:14 am #113415
Are you both just trying to have a image in the feature area or is the image supposed to be in the background overlaid by text?
A link to a screenshot would be helpful.
@cpan The PHP goes in the a new file called functions.php.July 26, 2013 at 10:18 am #113440
Is it possible to get rid of the content area and make the featured content area the full width of the page without making the theme unresponsive? Or better yet, keep the content area, but make it full page width and situated below the featured content area? I need to put a MetaSlider slider the full width of the page, but also need a responsive website. Thank you very much for your help. It’s a great theme, and if only I could do this, I’d pay for the Pro version, but don’t want to risk paying for something that’s not what I need after all.July 26, 2013 at 5:37 pm #113497
Ulrich, if text is entered in the Home Page area of the theme (appearance – theme options – home page), the image will grow to the height of the text but if nothing is put in those text areas on that page (appearance – theme options – home page) other than blank spaces (that way there is no text), the same image is cropped. I would like the image to fill that entire content area. Ill attach two screenshots, one with text entered in the theme options/home page and one without so you know.
http://i.imgur.com/UrexCQO.jpg – without text (notice image is very narrow)
http://i.imgur.com/qzQPImA.jpg – with the default text that came with the template – image is taller but still not as tall as the real image is.
thank you for your help. I believe this is the same thins cpan is having.July 26, 2013 at 9:14 pm #113558

@HerdingPixels Please start your own post. Perhaps this might help. http://cyberchimps.com/guide/list-of-child-themes/
@djreese So you just want a picture to cover the whole area. You do so with pre created child theme(Full width area). http://cyberchimps.com/guide/list-of-child-themes/July 28, 2013 at 2:19 am #113825
