Tiny bit of CSS help needed please! (5 posts)

    Hi

    I am trying to make the theme that I am using wider. I have managed to do this ( I just have the header image to do).

    The problem is there is 1 pixel of the background showing through now I have made it wider!!

    I have tried for nearly 2 hours to get ride of it now, given that I know zero css other than what I have taught myself in the last few days.

    Can someone tell me how to get rid of it. It is the background, as when I remove the background file it goes away. It is exactly where the old blog margin used to be. The old blog was 768px wide, now it is 900px.

    Please help if you can.

    Many thanks

    Make a new image, the old image was obviously designed for the old width...

    And yes can confirm it is the image on the following CSS defs...

    #masthead

    and

    #content

    I've just made the background image twice as wide and inserted a line of white, 1 pixel wide so I can see where it joins.

    I still have the background showing through but it is no where near a join. Any further ideas or is it just trial and error with the width?!

    The original background was 171px wide, but would the theme really be sensitive to the width of the background image?

    Many thanks

    PS, it doesn't show through the very top white part of the blog which is only 8px high...

    The image you're having a problem with has a 1 pixel transparent area that shouln't be there...

    Try this one instead and the phantom lines will vanish....

    I assume this is what you were originally referring to...

    It's a 900px by 1px image...
