    Hi there,

    I'm working with the vigilance theme. I would like to customize my header to it stretches across the entire screen, kinda like this: http://changecamp.ca/

    My site: http://www.elaishastokes.com

    code:
    /*Body & Links
    ------------------------------------------------------------ */
    body {
    font-size: 62.5%;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, Serif;
    line-height: 2.2em;
    color: #333;
    }
    a:link, a:visited { color: #772124; }
    .entry a:link, .entry a:visited { font-weight: bold; }
    a:hover {
    text-decoration: underline;
    color: #58181b;
    }
    /*Basic Structure
    ------------------------------------------------------------ */
    #wrapper{
    width: 920px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    text-align: left;
    }
    #content{
    float: left;
    width: 600px;
    padding: 20px 20px 20px 0;
    }
    #sidebar {
    float: right;
    width: 300px;
    padding-bottom: 20px;
    }
    .thin-sidebar {
    float: left;
    width: 140px;
    }
    .spad { padding-right: 20px; }
    #footer {
    clear: both;
    padding-top: 5px;
    border-top: 1px solid #ddd;
    }
    .clear:after, li.comment:after { content: "."; display: block; height: 0; clear: both; visibility: hidden;}
    /*Header
    ------------------------------------------------------------ */
    #header {
    padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
    border-bottom: 5px solid #333;
    }
    h1#title, div#title {
    font-size: 4.6em;
    font-weight: bold;
    line-height: 1.3em;
    }
    h1#title a:link, h1#title a:visited, div#title a:link, div#title a:visited { color: #444; }
    h1#title a:hover, div#title a:hover { color: #772124; text-decoration: none; }
    /*Description
    ---------------------------------------*/
    #description {
    float: left;
    }
    #description h2 {
    font-size: 1.2em;
    font-weight: normal;
    color: #666;
    }
    /*Nav
    ---------------------------------------*/
    #nav {
    float: right;
    font-size: 1.5em;
    font-family: "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans", Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
    }
    #nav ul {
    padding: 0 0 0 20px;
    list-style: none;
    position: relative;
    }
    #nav ul li {
    display: inline;
    margin: 0 0 0 15px;
    }
    #nav .page_item a:link, #nav .page_item a:visited {
    color: #333;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    #nav .page_item a:hover {
    color: #772124;
    text-decoration: none;
    padding-top: .1em;
    border-top: 4px solid #772124;
    }
    #nav .current_page_item a:link, #nav .current_page_item a:visited, #nav .current_page_item a:hover, #nav .current_page_parent a:link, #nav .current_page_parent a:visited, #nav .current_page_parent a:hover, #nav .current_page_ancestor a:link, #nav .current_page_ancestor a:visited, #nav .current_page_ancestor a:hover {
    color: #772124;
    text-decoration: none;
    padding-top: .1em;
    border-top: 4px solid #772124;
    }

    Any help would be most appreciated
    Thanks!

    Where you have your header with the yellow background and the bottom border, turn that off. make an image that looks like that. Then your CSS:

    body {
    font-size: 62.5%;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, Serif;
    line-height: 2.2em;
    color: #333;
    background: #fff url(yourimage.jpg) top left repeat-x;
    }

    The header is nested inside a wrapper (#wrapper in your stylesheet), you need to extend the width of the wrapper or take the header out of the wrapper which will keep your content a set width...

    The header will not stretch as long as the wrapper remains a set width or until it is sat outside the wrapper..
