I know CSS and HTML, but I've never been very good at untangling LJ-styles.

I just created the lolmogz community.

Being lazy, I grabbed the "Vector Drips" theme currently listed under "featured", altered the background header image, and changed the custom CSS to point to my altered image:

#header-inner {
background-image: url(http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i181/auronlu/lolmogz.jpg);

I've tried specifying the height and width, but exactly the same thing happens. My header image is 940x200, but it's being scaled down to 800x170, and then tiling to fill out the space.

I'm totally stymied as to why, since I used the theme's original header image and just altered some pixels!

maybe try adding

background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top center;

within the brackets?

so you'd have

#header-inner {
background-image: url(your-url);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top center;

EDIT: I took a look at your image, and it measures 799x170px when I view it in my browser as well as when I download it. I'd double check your uploaded image, and your original, and make sure it didn't get resized somewhere on your end.

i don't know if that will fix the size, but it should stop the tiling.

@$#!!! you, Photobucket!
D'oh! It HAD to be something obvious like that.

Photobucket's uploader has a max-size option that you have to poke to get anything wider than 800px. Wonder how long that's been there?

Thank you!

Re: @$#!!! you, Photobucket!
no problem!

also- not sure if you can test it in IE, but I had a problem with my header bleeding into the nav strip up at the top. I was able to fix it by sticking

#container { padding: 10px;}

in the custom CSS box.

IE and my OS haven't been on speaking terms since the turn of the century, but I'll slip that in for those still using it. Again, thankye!

Try adding no-repeat after the bracket but before ;

Also, looking at the style's original CSS, I think it should be in #header but I'm not sure. Try what works.
