Dots header image control (6 posts)

    I'm using Alex King's 3 Column "Dots" template as a starting point for my site. I am still in process on many changes but one thing that has me stumped so far is the header section.

    My site: http://www.memoriafoto.net

    What I want in the header is a blue background, the banner image centered between the top and the bottom of the header, the name of the blog above the banner image and the tagline below.

    I can move the weblog name around - so that isn't a problem. What I cannot seem to find is a way to set the header background to a the blue color. I haven't really started to play with the tagline because when I did I realized I had some odd overlaps in the header.

    If you have used the Dots template or have some ideas of what I might try - I'd appreciate some hints.

    There is an alternate 3-col layout, Trident.

    Podz -

    Well it worked alright! I thought sure I had tried that before, but I must have left something off or typed it wrong. Who knows, after mucking around with a bunch of stuff, you lose track.

    Hey Podz when I download the Zip file version of Trident I only get 3 files.

  8. index.php
  9. wp-layout.css
  10. I have tried to download this from other sites and I get the same thing. I was reading an earlier post where a fella was saying he only got 1 or 2 files. Any ideas?
