    You're in danger of having too many elements. If you're going to make something of the W being different, make it noticeably different (I assumed the Woodruff was in the W font, and took me a while to...

    Thanks for the thoughts and questions. I had several tries with the same font but it always looked too plain. The different fonts seemed to help the logo to stand out but still look professional. I'll...

    Comment on Hey guys, I'm wondering which domain name sounds better.

    You might try always spelling it out with mixed case, as in MichelleBethDean.com. Domain names aren't case sensitive, so it'll work with no problem. It'll also eliminate any confusion over what it says...

  • Need Header to Extend Across Page

    HEy guys! I'm a noobie and and have a wordpress blog that i've been trying to tinker with. Wordpress really, as far as I know, only gives you unfettered access to php files and css, not html.

    What I am trying to do is extend my heading across the page, kind of like in on this site. the site is spatterblog (can't list the link but if you'll google you'll find it, or just add the .com). I want to know if i can use css to repeat the orange header image across the span of the page? I tried following the advise of one of the other posts with advised to use the following code and two images:

    body{
    background: #000000 url('your-image.png') repeat-x;
    }

    but I still can't get it to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    if you add that code to your body tag, it will work; however, if the style you've added in your header for #page is the code you're using to repeat the header, it won't work because:

    you're targeting #page, which is the wrapper div for your site...it needs to be on the body element...

    you're telling it to repeat-y, which is vertical...you want repeat-x, which is horizontal...

    also, you don't really need to specify top after repeat-x, as it will start at the top anyway...

    hope that helps...
