    This is done in your style.css

    If you look in there, you will see this:

    #wrap {background-color:#fff; color:#333; margin:0 auto; width:760px;}

    Just change 760px to 990px

    Thanks, any idea why my header image wont show and why its alligned to the left? (like everything else for some reason see the write a comment at the bottom of the page).

    My header.php reads:

    Many thanks,


    Your header isn’t showing because the quotes are closed too soon and you have an irrelevant tag in the src attribute.

    Should look like this instead:

    <img id="frontphoto" src="" width="950" height="200" alt="banner-image" /><br />

    Its aligned left because, since you changed your site’s width the header image is now 40 pixels smaller than its container. Upload a new 990px wide image to fit the space.


    I’ve changed my page wdith to match the header but something funny is still going on, for example the image that says “looking to learn the drums” is aligned right, why is it now on the left? And the “write a comment” why is this wrapping round the bottom banner image?



    [double question – resolved here: ]

    I’m looking at it and the “Looking to Learn Drums” image is still floated right and the Write Comment box is breaking below your banner. Fixed since your last post?
