    Hi all, I am currently using the BlixKrieg theme and I am having a major problem with my banner vs blog title. I have inserted a custom header image into the top of the blog (http://www.spashleyu.com), if I then go to “Options” and enter the name of the blog, it not only shows up at the top of the browser bar, but it writes itself over the header image and looks like poop. I really want the blog title at the top of the browser, and I’ve seen other sites using this theme do it without their banner being overwritten. Any suggestions? I’ve tried getting a hold of the template author, but no reply as of yet. I am guessing this has to do with this following portion of header.php

    <title>
    <?php if (is_home()) {
    bloginfo('name'); echo " - "; bloginfo('description'); wp_title();
    }
    else
    {
    wp_title(''); echo " - ";bloginfo('name');
    }?>
    </title>

    Please help, I am getting exceedingly frustrated with this, and it’s making the links on Google search look horrible.

  • patience sean….you changed themes as I was looking at it… hard to provide assistance when that happens! 🙂

    Ugh! I actually didn’t! That’s the second time that’s happened today. I think it’s one of the other authors, going to go email them and yell at them now… swear it wasn’t me -laugh-

    I’m havin’ a heckuva time duplicating your problem…

    Do you not have Blog-Title ‘on’ right now?

    Nope, just turned it on for you. Click through to any of the sub pages (Write In or whatever) and you will see it. Nothing changes on the main page either… I am stumped.

    got it… let me play for a minute….

    <div id=”header”>
    <h1>SpashleyU.com</h1>
    <h4></h4>
    </div> <!– /header –>

    one thing is the title is called twice, one in an h1, another in an h4… I would guess one was added by the theme writer in html edit to the theme header, and the other started life embedded into the theme and is called by the php you listed above.. It is impossible for me at least to determine why it is only on some pages and not all, not being familiar with the function/layout of your theme, but I would seriously consider whacking all of the php you outlined above, and rely on your banner alone…

    just my opinion… btw, this is a IE issue, FF doesn’t suffer from it….

    you can also do this, as a quick fix:

    add to your css the following:

    #header h1, h4
    {display:none;}

    Okay, I took out the PHP I quoted, and I put the header code in you suggested for the CSS file, but that kills the banner and leaves me with an empty box at the top… no text though, so now I just have to figure out how to bring the banner back.

    This is the original call for the header

    /* header
    --------------------------------------------------*/
    #header
     {
      background-color:#e5d3bd;
      background-image:url(images/spring_flavour/header_bg.jpg);
    }

    I greatly appreciate your help… I just want to be done with this, I’m actually helping a friend with this, and this is how I spend my day -sigh-

    if you use the css mod, DON’T whack the script.

    -sigh- I think I give up. I tried the header replacement, it made things worse… I’m stumped… I like it when themes just work dangit!

    ahight- check it out dude… will fix the product of this problem, but not the problem itself, okay? same same when it is all said and done in my book:

    add to ALL your css files, as I see it uses several, do it at the bottom of each one, copy and paste:

    #header h1
    {display:none;}
    #header h4
    {display:none;}

    A-HA! It looks like you got it! Thank you SOOOOOO much!

    coolness
