What I meant was change the template of your Home Page not create a new page.
Just make the same changes you made on your new page to your original home page.

You can make any page your home page by going to Settings>Reading and the first item you choose which page will be the home page.

Great, glad I could help! It's such an easy solution, but they bury it somewhere you would never guess to look!

...The slideshow is still not where I want it to be, and I have to figure out moving some of the things around the bottom half of my landing page. It can be frustrating for someone like me, but I would rather spend the time and make the Home page something that will hold the attention of a possible customer.


I agree with you - if the front page doesn't grab the prospective buyer, they aren't likely to hang around.

Did anyone else point you to the Symbiostock forums? There are lots of other people who are doing what you're doing there and you might find it easier to get specific questions answered (plus possibly find some answers in the existing posts of others, snippets of CSS you can borrow, etc.).

The only thing I'd suggest based on a look at your site so far is that you should have an image as the first slide in the slideshow. Overlay the text if you want to get the price up front, but I think a site that licenses images shouldn't come up with the first few seconds being mostly text :)

And you can announce your site here once it's semi-operational - you don't have to get all the uploads done (I'm still working on mine as time permits) prior to getting your site as part of the network.

Thank you Jo Ann for visiting my site and for your suggestions.  I wanted to do the text overlay on some of the images, but I don't think my slideshow plugin allows for that. Sometimes the problem with finding info on how to do something is the fact its not all in one place, like a library, but it seems to be so many places and I usually google the question, and then follow a link.
I also dont like to post questions for every little problem I encounter, I feel that I'm imposing on the time of others for what at times may be very trivial problems, but I do appreciate the kind people who give of their time and knowledge selflessly to help others like myself, who basically have no clue, and just muddle through the process.

BTW, your site is very nice Jo Ann - its the look I'm going -  for simple, clean and inviting.

+1 to everything Jo said.

+2.  I am going to hire someone soon to do a complete project for me, end to end, for my work.  I simply am a techie, but mechanically, process design, troubleshooting, lean manufacturing, etc, but when it comes to technology, I SUCK!!!!
