  • 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...

        I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

        Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

        In terms of real world critique, if...

        Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

        Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

        The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
