Well yesterday I promised you the second half of this idea of stretching your abilities. And I have been stretching the little ones abilities to the maximum. Poor little brat this grandpa made her so frustrated yesterday. But she really is learning to read well. I am increasingly surprised at how much more advanced the computer has made modern day children. They really do appear light years ahead of where we were at their ages. Is it a good thing? I sometimes wonder. Of course to keep up with their age group they really don’t have much choice but I think they miss a lot of the good things we had as children. The simple things, like making roads in the dirt to push our Dinkie cars along: The climbing of trees and the building of tree houses. I can remember standing for hours on the banks of a river while my Dad patiently taught me how to skip flat stones on the river surface. Where did that all go?
Well we are going to extend the custom fields again.
Being different and standing out from the crowd is very important. This creates an immediate impression.
WordPress now allows this because it enables you to post a class function.
Go into your functions php and insert the following code.
Your Editorial Post
If you want to change a background image for users to use you can also apply this here.
You need to set your image width to 1200 or higher then upload it to your wp-content. Use the URL of the site as /wp-content whatever and put it in the custom field area which is called background. Now add it. Now upload tim thumb. And you will be ready.
You are now going to add some code to just below the style sheet on your theme. This you will find in your header area.
Make sure that the URL that you are using is the relative and not the absolute if there are any problems. Another problem you might have is that you don’t have the permissions correctly set in the files section. Check timthumb for the correct ones.
I hope you enjoyed that little tip. It is pretty simple to do once you get the hang of it. There are several more things we can do along these lines and I look forward to sharing them with you.
