    hurm..seems like there’s a conflict between where your wordpress install stores the uploaded files and where it thinks those files reside. It must be something to do with the file path settings somewhere, or maybe in the database.

    What directory does the whole of wordpress files currently reside in, public_html or public_html/wordpress/?

    Also, you might want to check the Settings > Media admin page, and try modify the settings for Store uploads in this folder and Full URL path to files.

    Try to manually verify that the folder uploads, 2010, and 09 exist on the server . If they are, try changing the permission of all of these folders to 777.

    Hurm..yes, this could very well be the reason. Try going to the Settings > General admin page and check both the site address and wordpress address.

    Waalaikumussalam, and hi Syarif.

    The problem you are describing is not related to nor caused by the Graphene theme. In most cases, it is due to the file permission setting in your server. You should really answer what the error message says: is the parent directory writable by the server?

    In your case, I believe you need to change the wp-content/uploads/2010 folder’s permission to 777. There’s a lot of tutorial on how to do this. See this WordPress codex page on file permission for starters.

    CSS property only allow offset value, and not where the background should stop. For that, I simply set the width or height of the element that uses that particular image in the sprite. For elements with expandable width or height, I carefully choose the placement of the image to be used as background in the sprite, so that other images in the sprite won’t show up.

    As for the gradient tool, you can select the area to apply it first by using the selection tool.

    In Photoshop, you can use the Rectangular Marquee Tool (that selection tool), and select the Info tab near the Navigation tab at the right hand side. Then do a selection from the left side of the document until the width in the info tab reads 943.

    And yes, there are new implementation in the style.css itself. If you’re using child theme to make modifications, you would only need to modify the elements that you need to modify, and not copy/paste the whole of the original style.css, so the new implementation in style.css when you update the theme will still be reflected in the site.

    You’d have to use the gradient tool for that. Notice that there’s two part to the main content wrapping background: 1) the post content part and 2) the sidebar part. The part that fades to white is the sidebar background.

    And while we’re on the customisation discussion, I would just like to remind you that you best do these customisations using a child theme instead of directly modifying the theme’s files. A new update (version 1.0.8) is coming soon with a lot of new features, and you really don’t want to miss on that. Modifying the theme’s files directly will cause you to lose those modifications when you update the theme.

    Correct.

    In the Graphene theme, there are 3 sprite images: sprite_master.png (for non-repeating images), sprite_h.png (for horizontally-repeating images), and sprite_v.png (for vertically-repeating images).

    The concept behind using sprite images is to combine as many images as possible that you use in your XHTML/CSS document into a single image. The reason for this is that each separate image will require a separate HTTP request, and the more HTTP requests the slower the website loads, due to the overhead associated with each HTTP request. Reducing the total number of images from what would range in the 20s down to 3, the loading speed and connection reliability of the website can be increased quite significantly.

    Though, of course, the downside of this is that it’s a little bit more difficult to edit those images.
