The Faculty Domains 2017 theme is a child of the WordPress Twenty Seventeen theme. It features multiple sections on the front page as well as widgets, navigation and social menus, a logo, and more. It has an asymmetrical grid with a custom color scheme. It is a good choice to showcase your multimedia content with post formats. It works great in many languages, for any abilities, and on any device.
One of the first things you might want to do is change the background image of your site. The default image is a blue gradient background.
First, make sure that the Faculty Domains 2017 theme is the Active theme. In your WordPress Dashboard go to Appearance > Themes. It should be the upper-left most theme and it should be labeled “Active: Faculty Domains 2017“. If it isn’t find the theme and click on the Activate button. Once it’s activated, click on the Customize button.
Choose the Header Media menu item. You can follow the instructions here, but under the Header Image area, the Current header shows the blue gradient image. Click the button just below it labeled Add new image. You’ll be brought to the Choose Image screen with the Media Library displayed. To choose and image from your computer, select the Upload Files tab. Click the Select Files button in the middle of the screen. Note the suggested size for the image is 2000 × 1200 pixels. Select the file from your computer and choose Open. When the image finishes uploading, click the Select and Crop button in the lower right corner. Some or all of the image will be selected, indicated by a dotted rectangle. Adjust the cropping as you like, or just choose the Crop Image button if you like the selection. You should now see your image in full glory as the Current Header. Finally click the Save & Publish button in the upper left.
The new site might look like this now:
