I am using the Erzen theme for my website. I have lots of photos on my posts and a WA ad in the sidebar and footer. On the homepage there are only the WA ads. To add photos there I guess I can put them in the sidebar using widgets. Is there another way to do it? Can I have a photo as background in the heading next to my website title or perhaps with the title embedded? Thanks.

Great, Marion! I will get some appropriate images and give it a try. That appears to be just what I am hoping for. Thanks.

Hi Joe,

This depends entirely on your theme. So personally I would be researching what options your chosen theme gives you and go from there. Just be careful having photos as a background though, this can significantly increase page load time, which is bad for SEO. I always recommend keeping it simple for this reason but up to you.

Tim,

Thanks for your thoughts. My homepage just seems a little barren and one reviewer pointed that out. All my posts are loaded with photos and some embedded videos. I'll do some more research on the theme. I think that the home page isn't what will come from customer searches. It merely serves as sort of a table of contents. The first sight of my website will be of a post, I guess.

Yeah spot on Joe. You can definitely use a nice looking theme, I just always recommend people choose something simple and focus on content because this is the '80/20' of success with any website really- the content itself.
