    it will help if you could link directly to the poassword protected post.

    for positioning elements, changes to style.css are usually sufficent.

    Thanks for the response! What am I looking for in the style.css file?

    I just figured out your first sentence. Here's what it looks like:

    some styles such as:

    .entry form p input { min-height:30px; margin-top:10px; width:210px;}
    .entry form p label input { min-height:25px; margin-top:10px; width:200px;}

    added to the end of style.css might help.

    Thanks, lemme look into it right now! I have an auto RSS google feedburner. And I don't want a bunch of folks (well, about 20 or so) looking at a weird post.

    Actually, I can unpublish it right now and work under a little less pressure!

    these links seem to have an old url for the images:

    from the html code in the browser:

    <div id="bottom_nav"><span class="prev_nav"><a href="http://thunderclapcg.com/page/3/"><img src="http://themetest.com/wp-content/themes/Thunderclap/images/older.jpg"></a></span> <span class="next_nav"><a href="http://thunderclapcg.com/"><img src="http://themetest.com/wp-content/themes/Thunderclap/images/newer.jpg"></a></span></div>

    the code might be direct in index.php;
    just look for the <div id="bottom_nav"> and see if you can identify the image url.

    or post the code within this div here for someone to have a look at.

    OK, I found the code you're suggesting (in the index.php). Here it is:

    <div id="bottom_nav"><span class="prev_nav"><?php next_posts_link('<img src="http://themetest.com/wp-content/themes/Thunderclap/images/older.jpg" />') ?></span> <span class="next_nav"><?php previous_posts_link('<img src="http://themetest.com/wp-content/themes/Thunderclap/images/newer.jpg" />') ?></span></div>

    It looks like what you grabbed from the browser. So, I guess this means it's trying to grab an image from some place on the web ("themetest," etc.) and not seeing anything there?

    If this is right, I need to find the place - the "new" url - where those words went, I guess?

    try change this code to:

    <div id="bottom_nav"><span class="prev_nav"><?php next_posts_link('<img src="'.get_bloginfo('template_url').'/images/older.jpg" />') ?></span> <span class="next_nav"><?php previous_posts_link('<img src="'.get_bloginfo('template_url').'/images/newer.jpg" />') ?></span></div>

    That did it! Man, this is awesome! Thanks so much for your help. In safari, it looks great.

    In firefox, on a mac, there's a rule-line box around the graphic. It looks the same on firefox and in explorer when on a PC.

    I don't remember if it was like that three months ago. I've had a similar kind of experience in adding graphics to posts. A jpeg sometimes looks different than a png file. I'm using safari, though, when I do all this. And I'd heard that safari is a little wonky.

    Is my experience in the above graph related to the rule-line thing?

    this is a browser dependant default style for image links -
    to get rid of it, add this:

    a img {border:none;}

    somewhere to style.css (there are a few link styles near the beginning, just after would be a good place)

    Got it. I put it up towards the top...

    /* Header */
    h1#header, h2#header {
    	background: #CFB383;
    	margin: 0;
    	height: 134px;
    	text-indent: -1234em;
    	position: relative;
    	z-index: 1001;
    	background: url(images/header.jpg) 0 no-repeat;
    }
    
    a img {border:none;}
    /* You can change the dimensions of this if you use a logo instead of text for the title */
    
    #header a {
    	position: absolute;
    	left: 25px;
    	top: 10px;
    	height: 100px;
    	width: 600px;
    	text-decoration: none;
    }
    
    /* Content */

    This fixed it on firefox mac, but not on the PC. Should I try putting the code in different places on the page? Up front more?

    you may need to refresh the page in the browser ('reload' button) or use 'ctrl f5' to clear the browser cache, to make the new styles effective.

    It worked! On both PC browsers.

    Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate it. Having never used the wordpress support area, I am blown away with the results.

    WordPress and the community has been an empowering experience for me. Great example of social media can mean! Thanks again, Alchymyth!
