    I have watched all of the training videos and read all of the training material. My site is looking great but I have a few questions.

    1) I’ve added the FB, and Twitter address but the icons on the top right corner of the page are still grey and black. Is there a way for them to stand out better so that people can notice that they are there; maybe have them be colorful?

    2) Is there a way to change the text size on each page. The default is very small and I’d like to increase it but I don’t see any options to change it.

    3) I love the slide show feature and I’m using it on the home page. I am using the 3D Piecmaker Slider (full width). I’m having a number of problems.

    a) I can not get the light box option to work. The picture is uploaded and for “apply link to image” I select “Lightbox Image” but it doesn’t work.

    b) When I link to a page on my site, it opens a new window. They’re staying on my site and so a new page should Not open. Is there a way to change that so that when they click the link it takes them to the page without opening a new window?

    c) I’ve got 5 pictures showing in the slide show. Each one has a Caption Title and a Caption. On the website, the 4th and 5th slide of the titles and captions are showing html code. This is what is showing amongst my text, </p> How do I get rid of that?

    d) I’ve tried everything and I can not get video to play in the slide show. I add the video as featured media by using “Add media file from URL. Then I add the URL, title, and click insert in post. I’ve tried a number of ways to “apply link to the image.” I’ve tried the “Lightbox Image” option but when I did that the slide doesn’t show up on the website. Then leaving the video as the featured media I tried “embed video when image is clicked” and I added the URL but when I did that the slide didn’t show up on the website either. Then I tried making the “featured media” a picture and used “embed video when image is clicked”, and added the URL. When I tried this none of the slideshow pictures worked; the area was just blank on the page.

    I love the theme but would also like to get these things figured out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    1) The images are located in your theme folder under images/skin-minimal/, you can edit & replace them to your liking.

    2) In your style.css you can find

    body {
    font: 12px/1.7em "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;

    Change the 12px to whatever you’d like.

    3) I’ll get back to you on these questions by tomorrow (or 15 hours or so).

    Thanks for the response on the first two so far. I was able to make the text size change.

    Question about the social media images. I found the twitter image in my theme folder on my computer. Do I make the change there on my computer or do I make the change online somewhere? I couldn’t find it online but I’m not sure if I make the change on my computer if that will affect anything online.

    Thank you Chris.

    I did try changing the social media images on my computer in the theme folder under images/skin-minimal/ and that didn’t do anything. The website still shows the original pictures so I’m assuming the change must need to take place online somewhere but I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks.

    Hey,

    the social media images can be found in wp-content/themes/corona/images/skin-dark or wp-content/themes/corona/images/skin-minimal (it depends on you skin).

    You need to upload you modified image file into with a ftp software (I prefer filezilla) or the cpanel (if your hoster offers it). After you uploaded the modified file clear your browser cache because the old images may be used (leftovers).

    Thank you Dude. I was able to upload the modified images through the cpanel.

    The only thing I still need help with is the problems I’m having with the slideshow on the home page. I am using the 3D Piecmaker Slider (full width). I’m having a number of problems.

    a) I can not get the light box option to work. The picture is uploaded and for “apply link to image” I select “Lightbox Image” but it doesn’t work even after clearing the browser.

    b) When I link to a page on my site, it opens a new window. They’re staying on my site and so a new page should Not open. Is there a way to change that so that when they click the link it takes them to the page without opening a new window?

    c) I’ve got 5 pictures showing in the slide show. Each one has a Caption Title and a Caption. On the website, the 4th and 5th slide of the titles and captions are showing html code. This is what is showing amongst my text, </p> How do I get rid of that?

    d) I’ve tried everything and I can not get video to play in the slide show. I add the video as featured media by using “Add media file from URL. Then I add the URL, title, and click insert in post. I’ve tried a number of ways to “apply link to the image.” I’ve tried the “Lightbox Image” option but when I did that the slide doesn’t show up on the website.

    Thank you for the help.
