Header woes

  • Jan. 30th, 2007 at 10:05 PM
Hi, Hope someone can help.

I am a paid user, and I am using firefox and with several expressive themes, I find the header gets cut off either at the top or the bottom.

Here is a screenshot as an example, with "Landscape Country Night"

bigger version here: http://pics.livejournal.com/lab_brat/pic/0007gh1z/

here is what it is supposed to look like:

you can't see the top of the windmill and only half the bird on my LJ. This also happens with several other layouts. However, if I view the same layout on someone else's LJ, it looks fine so I am thinking it is specific to my lj (unless they fixed it).

can someone tell me what might be wrong, or point me in the direction for fixing it?


PS. I don't have the theme in use at present because it not looking right annoys me, but if anyone needs to see it just give a shout and I will switch back to it for a while.

Do you have any Custom CSS in the customization wizard? If you're explicitly setting the height property in either #header or #header-inner, that would affect the header on a few layouts.

thanks, that was it. I had some in there left over from the last time I used expressive. I deleted it, and the header shows up properly now. :)

You're welcome! That was the most likely cause, but I was concerned that it might be some kind of Firefox issue or bug, since I don't use V2 yet. Would you mind editing the title of the post to add "Solved" or something?

I don't know if it will work or not, but you could try manually setting the header container div to the size of the image.

Find the image size by right clicking on it and viewing properties - you should see it's size in pixels. Then put this in your custom CSS:

#header-inner { height: 215px; }

and make sure the height specified matches the height of the image.

Thanks for unknowingly solving my header problem. :)

Hmm.. I notice in the image that there doesn't appear to be any journal title or top links being displayed. My guess is this is probably why the header is cut off, because it's not being as tall as it should be because there's no text in it to make it that tall..

I don't know why the text wouldn't be displayed, though..
