HI! I'm checking out the free version of DMS. I've read all the documentation and watched the video about getting started. Even watched a couple other videos I found on YouTube. There's a pretty big gap between average person (me, oh-so-average) and how to actually do *something*.
QUESTION: I want to add images to my site. For example, a header image/banner. So, at the top is the DMS navigation bar that was already there when I launched DMS via WP admin (based on pages I'd already set up). Under that is a Header section. I want an image there. An actual header/banner image. Shouldn't be hard! And I can tell DMS is supposed to be easy, but I'm missing a key piece of information, I think. (But I'd also like to be able to add images anywhere on the site.)
Is there an image module?
Am I supposed to do a single column first?
Do I have to do all images, even only a single image, through a slider? I did try RevSlider. I don't get it. I have this nice 800 px wide image. 200 px high. It blows up the image to HUGE, then takes the middle of it? (Yes, my general settings are... Layout mode = Pixel Width and Layout Display = boxed.)
And while I'm at it, there seems to be 3 page templates. But DMS came up (opened) with what looks like a page. Is that based on any of these templates? Hmmmmm. Don't really get the page template thing. But I assume you click a page on your site, then choose a template before doing any work. Then save? Does Publish save the page? The site?
There's so much I'll love once I understand how DMS works. Pretty sure. Yeah. Love is ahead.
Thanks for your help, dear peeps. I appreciate it.
