Juwon Jun asks:

I am in the process of building a new site and wanted to ask for your advice on choosing a theme. Our team was interested in this particular website ( and want to emulate the look of it. The closest theme I could find was Bravada, but once you navigate to a sample page, the content appears at the bottom of the header. However, the Hindi at UT Austin website appears to have the content appear at the top, replacing the header video and landing page text. Is this possible to code in Bravada, or another theme?

Scott, I'm wondering if you have thoughts about what's possible with the themes we have available on the Commons.

I had replied: It is better if you use an already existing theme. Please tell us more about what you like about Bravada. Thanks!"

Juwon specified: "I'm leaning toward Bravada, as I prefer the background image being full screen and immersive. I'd like to emulate this website ( for how the content sits at the center of the background/header (for example, click Resources). Is this possible with Bravada, or any other theme?"

I didn't see what she wants to do on any of the themes I looked at (including Bravada) - but I did see this plugin - What do you think about installing it?

The "Twenty Twenty" theme has background image support in the WP Customizer, but doesn't have an option to change the navigation and background color to transparent.

However, we can force the Twenty Twenty theme to use transparent colors by adding the following CSS under the "Appearance > Simple CSS" admin page:

.singular .entry-header {
    background: transparent;

Ask Juwon if that helps to emulate the Hindi site.

As for the centered content, first ensure that you're using the Block Editor, then write your content as usual and lastly, group all the blocks you just wrote. See for a tutorial on how to group blocks.

To emulate the centered content, you'll want to change the alignment of your Group block to Wide width . You can then change the background color of your Group block in the sidebar panel to emulate the Hindi Resources page. Some more info about this can be found here: .
