Header wont go “Down” and wont show

  • Hey, don’t apologise for being a beginner, everyone has to start somewhere!

    What do you mean when you say that the header won’t “go down”?

    please check http://www.chocobay.com

    the header won’t show up as a whole ! 🙁 I dont know which aspect to fix on the stylesheet 🙁

    drat, it’s been a month since im fixing these babies.

    You have #header set as 100px tall, but your background image is 248px tall. Thta’s one big issue right there – your #header div isn’t tall enough to show the entire image. You need to either resize your image, or change the height of your #header div.

    wow you’re good mr doodlebee. thank you for figuring that out 🙂 thanks thanks 🙂

    another issue, i set the header’s height to 300 for some allowance, but it still showed like that 🙁

    a question though, how can i “place” the header way below the search bar, and move the topbar ( that contains the adsense link units ) down ? 🙂

    First of all, I’m “Miss” Doodlebee 😉

    Secondly, I don’t see your header image at all – there’ sno call for it. it’s not set as the background for your header div, and you aren’t calling it in for your image in the HTML – you have this:

    <img src="http://chocobay.com/wp-content/themes/adsmindedwide" alt="" />

    But no image (the final part of that url should end in “.jpg” or “.gif” or something – so no image is being shown)

    Third of all, your #header is *still* set at 100px in height. If you changed it, you didn’t save your changes.

    And fourth: If you want your ads to show *above* the header image, then you need to move it’s placement. Right now, in your HTML, you have the script source for your ads *within* your header tag *and* below the image call. If you want it above, you need to move those scripts.

    Hi miss doodlebee! 🙂 Well I got all frustrated last night that I reset everything. I shall look for that
    <img src=”http://chocobay.com/wp-content/themes/adsmindedwide” alt=”” />

    🙂 I’ll update in a few hours 🙂

    Hi Miss Doodlebee ,

    Here’s what I have done

    – I have already adjusted the size of my header to 980 px width and 240 px height.

    I have already adjusted the codes too :

    #header {
    left: 0px;
    top: 42px;
    height: 240px;
    width: 980px;
    background: url(http://static.flickr.com/72/172648663_ad169ce826_o.gif) scroll 0% 0%;
    clear: both;
    }

    But upon checking http://www.chocobay.com, it seems that the header still won’t fit. It’s too “up”, and it gets cut off in the middle. What aspect of my stylesheet should I modify to be able to make the header fit? Thank you so much for your help.

    Note: In xhtml, you have to close elements. So, if you are going to use br, close it: br/

    That is a FORWARD slash, btw.

    I played with your css for a bit and it’s a mess because of the invalid html. Fix the validation errors, then if you’re still having problems, report back ;’)

    Hi Yosemite! :)Thank you for helping me out. So, are you saying that my main error is using <br> instead of <br/> ? 🙂

    I have fixed all <br \>’s to make it <br> or <br/> already.

    I think those are the only problems since I haven’t really changed anything with the template codes.

    Hi, I have corrected every <br \> or <br> into <br/>’s already.

    I still dont know where i went wrong with the header, why it just won’t fit 🙁 wah…

    I think there is a fundamental problem here with communication (understanding what we call validation errors). This link: http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.chocobay.com%2F shows 66 of them.

    It also shows a dozen or more br’s that are not closed.

    There are another dozen or so inline element errors that effect displaying your page (ul, li, p not closed, not opened, etc.).

    I have fixed all <br \>’s to make it <br> or <br/> already.

    In reality, this is not the case. When you make a fix or change, run it through the validator again.

    I really have no idea on how to correct those that you have mentioned 🙁 I’m no CSS expert and this is just my first theme to tweak. Oh well, que sera, sera. Thanks for your advise.
