    Dear Bill,

    I am building another site using Umami. This time, it is for a small school. We’ve just had professional images taken and now I want to use them throughout the website. I am struggling to use them as background images for two reasons:

    1. No matter how I resize them, the images are always stretched from the right to left margins. I would like them to start farther to the right margin so that the Navigation menu stays black in color.

    2. I cannot seem to get the Gallery settings to work so that I can insert a slide show on some of my pages. Do you have a favorite plug-in or trick for accomplishing this?

    Hi Rashel,

    The background images are designed to be the full size of the browser. You may be able to move them over so they don’t go under the sidebar. Here’s how I would try that:

    1. Go to your theme options page and choose the Advanced tab.
    2. Scroll down to the Custom CSS box and add this:
      @media only screen and (min-width: 768px) {
      	#supersized {
      		left: 300px;
      		right: 0;
    3. Update your settings.

    No promises that will work, but it’s worth a shot.

    Are you trying to add a slideshow in the content of a page, or in the background?
