Re: I know you'll think I'm stupid


I love both of those ideas!

where do I put the URLs?


banner with cloud text
[sign in to see URL]


for 'surf in the seperators' [sign in to see URL]

Re: I know you'll think I'm stupid


Look in your CSS for Josh's banner pic with this URL [sign in to see URL]

and replace it with the new one
[sign in to see URL]

Then do like Lesigner Girl mentioned about the negative text indent:
Edit: Skokey, I recommend keeping the board's name in the <h1> tag of the HTML and hiding it with a negative text-indent via CSS. This can help with search engine rankings, Google's targeted ads, and a variety of other things.

#header h1 {
margin: 0; font-size: 1px;
text-indent: -900000px;
}


Just about any number of pixels is good, as long as it is enough to hide the text in all screen resolutions.


The separator image can go in the set-up layout area. Paste [sign in to see URL] into the boxes that ask for
Forum list table header background image:
Forum list table separator background image:
Topic list table header background image:

Re: I know you'll think I'm stupid


Thank you

I tried to post that URL where you told me and I got these messages:




forum_list_table_header_background_image: Must not contain spaces
forum_list_table_separator_background_image: Must not contain spaces
topic_list_table_header_background_image: Must not contain spaces

Re: I know you'll think I'm stupid


If I'm understanding LG correctly, find this in your CSS:

/* DEFINES HEADER SIZE AND BACKGROUND */
#header {
width : 800px;
height : 172px;
background-image : url([sign in to see URL] );
background-repeat : repeat-x;
text-align : center;
margin : 0 auto;
}
#header h1 {
margin: 0;
line-height: 130px;
vertical-align:middle;
}


and replace the BOLD section with:

#header h1 {
margin: 0; font-size: 1px;
text-indent: -900000px;
}


Did you put JUST the image URL in the box or did you put forum_list_table_header_background
also?
There's no spaces in the URL so I'm not sure why you get that error message.

There was probably a space after your url, but I see it's fixed now. emoticon

quote:

Now [sign in to see URL] posticon box is [sign in to see URL] I can't see the [sign in to see URL] do I alter that please?


Add this to your CSS:

.ak_subject_posticon_icons_td img, .topic_list_table td img { width: auto; height: auto; }

Skokey, I like those clouds in the banner. Great idea, and the clouds look good! emoticon Maybe a dark outline on the rounded corners though, instead of the white? Then it will be perfect. emoticon

Yeah, I'll fix that. Not sure how that happened as I didn't do anything to the edges. Check back in a little while Oh Pen.

Very nice. emoticon

It wasn't noticeable on a white background, but showed up on the blue. emoticon
