Firstly, I apologise if this is in the incorrect area of the forum, wasn't entirely sure where it would fit in.
This is my first attempt at WordPress, having previously built basic html/css/php/mysqli sites using templates. I'm struggling with the items below, and hoped someone may be able to point me in the right direction.
The above template has a slideshow on the homepage. I've tried to set a slideshow up, but to no success - it's simply showing as a white space (screenshot: ). The actions I've taken so far are:
Appearance -> WP00902 Settings -> General Settings -> Featured Slideshow
--> Display Slideshow On -> Homepage Only
--> Album Name = Runners
Slideshows -> New Album = Runners
Slideshows -> Add new -> Insert Media into page
I hope this makes sense, as difficult to explain something I'm not too sure of myself!
I'm also looking to edit the text height - page headers in particular are huge, and look a little out of place (screenshot 2). I'd also like to change the font to a more basic one - we're including items from another site on the pages and I'd like all the text to match (arial).
My first thought was to try the CSS file, but I can't see anything there that controls font type or size. I do however note that in the editor, there is a theme-data.php which contains a list of many fonts and font sizes - is it simply a case of deleting the fonts/sizes I don't want?
Any advice much appreciated.
