[resolved] Changing Header Image and Title Problems (6 posts)

    Hi!
    I have two issues:
    1. My title is a little long (Ross's Blog - Ross Lindsay.com),
    and I was wondering if I could split it into two lines in the header because it overlaps my image. If possible, have it split into two lines without actually altering the name of the blog that shows up in emails. Ex. The subject line for a new user is [Ross's Blog - Ross Lindsay.com] - and I want it to stay that way, and still have the header title wrap.

    2. I am running the theme Blue Server 1.0 by Blue Angel, and was wondering if I could change the image of the servers (or whatever they are) up top. That may be one image...
    Thanks!
    Ross

    1. two possibilities:

    either change the css (style.css) for #title and add the following:

    width: 350px;
    line-height: 45px;

    or replace the text by an image

    2. the image is in your theme directory (called images/header_bg.jpg), and is an image of 911x232px. If you replace it, you'll be replacing the blue background behind your title as well.

    Actually, if you browse your style.css and look for this:

    #header {
    	background-image:url(images/header_bg.jpg);
    	background-repeat:no-repeat;
    	width:910px;
    	height:232px;
    	float:left;
    }

    And remove the background items, you'll be done.

    That worked, sort of. It made the text wrap.
    What I was really looking for was a way to change the text in the header and not affect the actual title of the website. Is that possible?
    Thanks!

    The text is created by a function, which you easily can replace with your own text (or image).

    Is there a simple way to reduce the height allowed for the header? I realize the Image and title will need to be reduced too. Primary concern of the user is to move the top of the two columns up about half the distance now occupied by header_bg.jpg
