Header in Tiki won't work - stretching

  • Sep. 1st, 2008 at 5:05 PM
I've used the code from one of your tutorials to customize my header and it won't work.  What on earth am I doing wrong?

My image is the required 940x301 (I wanted to make it as painless as possible) and yet it's stretching the container.  I have a basic understanding of CSS and I'm about  to go nuts :P

#header-inner {
background-image: url(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y183/italianmama/custom_lj/lj_topper.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;}

#header, #header-content {
background-image: none;
}

#header-inner {
background-image: url(
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y183/italianmama/custom_lj/lj_topper.png);
height: 301px;
}

Take a look at my journal to see what I mean.

Thank you so much for any help you can give  :)

Accessing the image directly indicates that it's only 799x256px, not 940x301px. Make sure Photobucket isn't resizing the image or something.
Also, you don't need two header-inner{} specifiers, only one is necessary.

Thank you! I had no idea PB was resizing my pics :P

Do you have a suggestion as to what I could do about nixing the purple space directly below my header?

Thanks again :)

Sure! Add padding-bottom: 0px; to your #header, #header-content {} section.
