    In the Css file, what is the code for shutting off the header text code. So where it says WordPress - Just another WordPress Blog, etc. I've made a 760x200 background image and this image has the Blog title and sentence below it already in the image. Now the CSS text title is overlapping my title, etc.

    Sounds like you're using the default Kubrick theme. To get rid of the header text, from the Admin panel, go to Presentation - Theme Editor. On the right hand side is a list of files in the theme. You want to edit header.php.

    Scroll down to the area (about 2/3 from the bottom) where you see <div id="header">. About 3 lines down is the code:

    <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>

    This is the code that displays the description. To get rid of the description, comment out the line, using the HTML comment tags, as follows:

    <!-- <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div> -->

    Click the Update File button and view the blog.

    In css:

    #header a {
    text-indent:-500em;
    }

    .description {
    display:none;
    }

    place right at the bottom of the css file.

    I'm using the Neuron themeI got of Alex King's website. I've similarly created an image for using at my title. I've got the image to show, but the title and subhead appear in white making the image look silly.

    How can I get rid of this stuff? I've left it blank in the options tab but it still shows up. I made the changes listed above but no luck. Now what?

    I am trying to modify the Kubrick template. I stuck that code into my style.css file.

    The description went away, but the blog title is still there. I wonder whether I misunderstood something.

    I put the code at the bottom of the file. Is that right?

    I can't see that code in your stylesheet. At all.

    Sorry. I figured it out. I'm not sure where, but I found some code for moving the title way off to the left of the screen.

    The site where I've been trying to do this, actually, is thewordnerds.info.
