Support » Fixing WordPress » Post title background

  • Resolved mlankton


    I am putting a color background around post titles in a redesign I am working on. I am having no luck at all getting the background color to extend the length of the window it’s in. I have played with background repeat and background position, but I always end up with <h3> tags that only have the color background to the last letter of the title. I really want this colored background to extend the length of the window it’s in, and to automatically resize when the browser window gets resized. I looked all morning and tried everything, but I need a hand on this simple fix.
    Thanks in advance.

  • you need to give a link to the page, otherwise it is pure speculation what we can tell you.

    I just checked in FF2 and in IE6 and both show a colored background extending to the right sidebar and automatically resize with the window. You might want to clear your cache and then view your site again.

    The link I was looking at was the one in your profile, if this isn’t correct post the right link.

    That’s my current theme. I’ll activate the unfinished theme so you guys can take a look.
    Oh, and thank you, I really appreciate the help.

    Remove this from your stylesheet

    .itemhead h3 {
    display: inline;

    You are my hero.
    Thanks for taking the time to help me with this easy fix.

    Hi all. I’m kind of having the same problem…the site is, but I JUST starting working on it, so it’s nowhere near finished (new to WP and PHP btw).

    I’m using a theme that I found on WP and I also created a custom home page. The thing is that when I make my browser window smaller, all the text moves on the new custom home page, but the background image stays stagnant, so things don’t line up the way I want them to.

    What I basically want to know is how can I have it so that ALL the pages on my site automatically resize so that everything like the background image will still be completely visible? For example, on my 3 other pages, I lose the SpotFellas logo at the top when I make the pages smaller.

    Thank you in advance.
