    I am having a number of problems.

    1. I am unable to set the page I have created as a static page. The option is not available when I go in to settings reading.

    2. How do I get my background image to fit the page to the fold. Only part of the image shows. I would like the full image to fill the screen and to then layout my text around it.

    3. I also would like to change the default settings on the paragraph layout. I would like to be able to have each paragraph showing just below the preceding one – and if I need a space that I can insert it with another paragraph return.
    So I’d like to have my paragraph spacing like this one.

    Not like this one. How do I do this?

    Hi there,

    1. Is the page published? not just a draft?

    2. Not sure what you mean? You can apply a background image to the body and set everything else transparent?

    3. Try reducing the Line height in Customizer > Typography > Body to 0.


    Hi Leo, Questions 1 and 3 sorted. Thank you.

    Question 2. I have applied the photo as a background image and the text is coming through. So no problem there.

    The problem is that only part of the image is showing on all the screens – different parts of the photo depending on the screen type. The full image contains sky, a woman jumping and grass at the bottom of the screen. What do I have to do to get this to appear above the fold on the laptop screen?

    Background images are tricky like this.

    If you set the size to 100% width, it will resize with your screen. The issue is it will add a white space below the image on smaller screens.

    The best thing you can do is apply a different background image which works better for that screen size when you hit that width.

    For example, if the image stops looking good at 1200px wide, you could do this:

    @media (max-width: 1200px) {
        body {
            background-image: url('URL TO DIFFERENT IMAGE');

    Let me know if that makes sense 🙂
