Questions about Trident (5 posts)

    I switched my blog at http://www.jimlynch.com to Trident. I've run into two problems though:
    1. When I try to insert the following code for Advanced Poll into the left menu (just under the links section), it pushes everything way down to the bottom in IE. This code just displays the latest poll:
    <li id="poll"><?php
    include_once "/home/jimlynch/public_html/poll/booth.php";
    echo $php_poll->poll_process("newest");
    ?>

  2. 2. I still haven't figured out a way to make the header graphic clickable so that it goes back to the main page of my blog. Somebody posted links about it earlier but they didn't seem to work. Anybody have a clear way to get the top graphic clickable rather than have text on it?
    Thanks in advance. Overall, I like Trident. I still need to tweak some of the fonts and text colors but it's working fairly well.

    The header page here should work for Trident:

    I would hazard a guess that you have a couple of items including a huge graphic that are bigger than their containers maybe? If you check out my own blog you can use the code for the header (its at the bottom in the CSS) And it is a bit untidy.

    Wow. Thanks for the quick response guys. LOL
    Tried your code Root but I'm not sure what to change in it to get it right. I tried it but it didn't seem to change anything.
    At this point I think I'll just leave it as is or try to stick a link labelled "home" somewhere on the page.
    It would really be nice if WordPress was redesigned to make this kind of thing very simple and easy. It's a bit silly that it takes so much code wrangling just to get a header graphic to link back to the main page.

    I switched it back to the old Dots based template. I'll have to play with Trident more before I use it for real.
