[resolved] Default header --- blue box still there (4 posts)

    Hi, I've been trying to change the header image on my site, and I've been about 99% successful. I made the necessary changes and now the image I want is on the front page, and is clickable.

    However, there's still the remnants of the default theme's blue box around the edges of my site's new header, and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I tried deleting the <?php wp_head(); ?> line, as suggested in another post, but that screwed up my YouTube embeds, which I can't really afford to have happen.

    Anyone have any ideas? My site's address is http://www.thermocaster.com, and the wordpress directory is /wp/

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to remove the background color from #header, which occurs two times in your css file, on line 37 and line 224:

    #header {
    background:#0668B1 url(images/banner3.jpg) no-repeat scroll center bottom;
    }

    becomes

    #header {
    background: url(images/banner3.jpg) no-repeat scroll center bottom;
    }

    and

    #header {
    background-color:#73A0C5;
    height:200px;
    margin:0pt 0pt 0pt 1px;
    padding:0pt;
    width:760px;
    }

    becomes

    #header {
    height:200px;
    margin:0pt 0pt 0pt 1px;
    padding:0pt;
    width:760px;
    }

    This, however will still leave you with the white background showing above the image.

    (A suggestion might be to take the original kubrickheader.jpg file in your template's images directory and work from that)

    Thanks! That worked...there were actually three occurrences in the CSS file, but I found the third one easily.

    As for the white background...I can deal with that. It gives it a decent contrast. Much better than the blue. Thanks again.
