    Actually it is too much unless someone can really write tutorials here for such things. No Offence but It would be better to hire a freelancer if you really don’t know what are you doing. (You will waste much of your time and if you are here to learn then read on)

    Q1>> Use a variable to count for each topic displayed and then break out of loop when it reaches the value (5). In theme folder, you need to edit front-page.php

    Q2>> Increase the font instead of making a link bold. Use CSS here.

    Q3>> For background-image use CSS to specify for DIV body

    i managed to fix everything apart from the image for background

    For body use

    body {
    background-image:url('img.gif');
    }

    Add that in style sheet. I use Notepad++ for all my coding needs.

    You need to check out where you want the background i.e. the background of which DIV and then you can add this into style sheet :

    #DIV_WHERE_YOU_WANT_BG {
    background-image:url('img.gif');
    }

    and the path to the image is relative to the file. make sure it is correct too.

    i want the hole forum to have the background

    i got the image i want on the bottom of the forum i want the hole of it like it

    Now that DIV you need to find out yourself.

    Install Firebug (Firefox Add-on).

    Open your forum and press F12.

    Now find the respective DIV.

    You are new to CSS. So go by Hit n Trial method ;)

    noob here DIV?

    <div id="blah">
    <div class="box">
    Content
    </div>
    <div class="box">
    Content
    </div>
    <div class="box">
    Content
    </div>
    </div>

    These are containers to hold data. A bigger container can have a smaller container ;)

    Page contents are divided in DVIs and then styling to these contents is applied through CSS.

    Got it now?

    I DID IT!!!!!

    THANK YOU SOO MUCH, IT WAS THAT FIRE FOX THING THAT HELPED. THANK YOU ASHFAME SOO MUCH

    SO HAPPY NOW BEEN ON THIS FOR OVER A WEEK

    THANKS
