  • 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 used illustrator to draw the hitch. I used the pen tool, shape builder, blob brush, as well as other tools.

        I do have a preset job option from the printer (I work for a vendor and send things directly to the printer) and I use it, but the clients are just exporting to pdf from InDesign. I've never considered...

        Download some of those lace samples and study them in Illustrator. You will see the complexity and you see that you will have to know the shortcuts and how the program works for repeats, exclusions e...

        B, I've never looked to those organizations to do much more than hand me gold pencils while dishing out rubber chicken as we pat ourselves on the back. They've always been a big, old social club that...

        Thank you for the critique! Is it the cursif font that's a bit much, or all of it?
