Wheres the rest of it? e.g. other pages?

It is an improvement but still not up to par for here.

Typography needs work, as does colours, hierarchy and it needs a lot more to it

As a guideline ( don’t get me wrong your persistence is epic), you turn files out in what seems to be a matter of days or less.

99% of the time even the best authors on here take a lot longer than this to meet the necessary standard.

If it was something you can knock up in a day or two everyone would be doing it.

There needs to be loads more to it with a more refined design to compete here.

Like I just picked http://themeforest.net/item/mumm-the-splitted-coming-soon/8551467 as a recnet one – you can see the options, features and elements that are on offer, and this resonates through most recent files.

If you look at the current choices they have multiple sections, content forms (by the way your form needs work as it does not validate that an address has been entered etc).

It is a nice enough starting point but needs work to get to the standard here.

You will need to login using the account which purchased the file to get any kind of support but the link posted above is definitely the best way

Look in theme options (most likely ‘Appearance >> theme options’) and see if you can see somewhere that says ‘Custom CSS’.

Alternatively you can ask the author of the file if they can guide you.

Or you can install a custom CSS plugin and use that. Like this https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/

All you need to do if you use the plugin or if there is an option in the theme is copy and paste the code above in there (and change the image or colour code to what you want).

If you are in any doubt ask the author – they are very reputable and it is a simple change (make sure you know what you want to change it to before contacting them)

If you want to use WordPress then you need to buy a THEME e.g. any of these http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress

If you buy a TEMPLATE that is just HTML e.g. http://themeforest.net/category/site-templates and you will need to use different tools to edit this as there is no management system as standard with these.

It is currently an image:

#header {<br /> background: url('images/header-bg.jpg') repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent;<br /> }

So either change the image to a different one (think about the sizing/repeat etc) or change it to just a colour e.g.

#header {<br /> background: #colour-hex;<br /> }


You can do this directly in the style sheet (skins.css) but you would be MUCH safer to do it using custom CSS in theme options if available or via a plugin
