Does anyone have an idea how to use the feature slider as a background with an overlay on it that is static with one side of the overlay (left) having static text and the right side of the overlay having the most recent post from a category. The real question is about using the feature slider as a background so that I can have the overlay static and put content there. Please see image as example. Posted Image

You wouldn't technically make it a background.

You would set a div overlay.

Appearance > Editor > Header (header.php)

And drop:

`

Hi, hello... whatever you want here.
`
below the `
Then:

`
.foverlay{
position:absolute;
z-index:100;
margin:300px auto 0px auto;
width:960px;
height:200px}
`
in Custom Code > Custom CSS.

That's really just the beginning, it's going to take more. I will need the link to your site and hopefully you can implement the code for me to test.

Thanks, Bryan
