    ugh. I can’t get the transparent image to show properly. It ends up too dark. What am I doing wrong? Here’s my css:

    .sidebar div.sidebar-wrap {
    background-image: url('images/trans20_black.png');
    border: none;

    (I’ll keep working on it…)

    @dlett – Thank you. Funny you should mention a background — I’m changing that as we speak! I’m gonna try Kenneth’s semi-transparency from the post above.

    @Prasanna – what? You don’t like the color Orange? 🙂

    @Kenneth – It’s okay, I’m still trying to figure out what it’s all about. Thanks for the downloads. I don’t know if I’ll use them, but I like having options. And you’re welcome. Hotlinking is for lazy losers. Besides, I’ve got unlimited resources thru my host. Speaking of, how do YOU guard against hotlinking?

    Thank you both for commenting. I truly appreciate every opinion I can get.

    Thanks, and “DUH on me”. I guess I needed a nudge into customizing the CSS. Thanks for the nudge. I was able to figure out everything I wanted to do, and then some.

    Wow! That’s beautiful. Thanks. I downloaded your editor, BTW. Too late now, must sleep. I’ll check it out tomorrow. It looks very nice.

    Thanks Josh. You da man! 🙂

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Image size is the winner!

    I created thumbnail images of 445 x 240 and the image displayed. Did NOT need to change file type. PNG works fine.

    Also, I rearranged the settings as you directed. I couldn’t test it without doing so because the new images won’t be on the page. But come to think of it, I guess that wouldn’t matter. I would have still needed to change the “featured image” URL, if I had gone that route.

    Anyway, it’s working now. Thanks again! Pretty cool theme.

    Ooohhh, okay, So the image size is probably the culprit. I’ll try that first. If that doesn’t work, I’ll change the file format from .png to .jpg. If still no luck, I’ll try rearranging the settings as you described. I’ll post back after and let you know the winner. 🙂

    Thanks, man.

    Thanks Josh!

    I found the ID number and got my pages to display, but text only. I still cant get the images to show. I’ve selected images in each page to be the “featured image” of that page. I’ve adjusted the settings in “Graphene Theme Options” appropriately.

    Copy & Pasted the entire “slider options” tab as it is:

    Disable slider [ no ]

    What do you want to show in the slider

    Show latest posts

    Show random posts

    —> Show specific posts/pages

    Show posts from categories

    Posts and/or pages to display [ 65,113,140,154,78 ]

    Enter ID of posts and/or pages to be displayed, separated by comma. Example: 1,13,45,33

    Applicable only if Show specific posts/pages is selected above.

    Number of posts to display [ 5 ]

    Slider image [ Featured Image ]

    Custom slider image URL [ http://haymanquarterly.com/images/UFOMainMenu.PNG ]

    Upload or select image from gallery – Make sure you select Custom URL in the slider image option above to use this custom url.

    Slider display style [ Background image and excerpt ]

    Slider animation [ Horizontal slide ]

    Slider height px [ left blank ]

    Slider speed milliseconds [ 8000 ]

    This is the duration that each slider item will be shown

    Slider transition speed milliseconds [ 500 ]

    This is the speed of the slider transition. Lower values = higher speed.

    Move slider to bottom of page [ no ]

    Any idea why the images wont show?
