    Hi, I was going to append this to an open topic, but it got closed. . .

    I’ve figured out how to add a tagline to the Mindstream header, but am at a loss how to style/space/pad it properly. Ideally what I’d like is to expand the black background to include both the title and the tagline on separate lines, but I’d settle for having the tagline show up below the black background. Right now they’re overlapping. . .

    Thanks,
    Susanna

    Back background isn’t spreading because it is a small gradient image (http://courageousquesting.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/mindstream/images/gradient.png).

    Solutions:
    1. Use black color code instead of image. Look for following code in style.css file

    /* Header
    ———————————————————— */

    #header {
    background: url(images/gradient.png) top repeat-x;
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-height: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 100%;
    }

    and change it to

    #header {
    background: #444;
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-height: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 100%;
    }

    2. Use bigger size gradient image.

    3. You can change background line in above code to:

    background: url(images/gradient.png);

    This will repeat gradient image vertically and horizontally but may appear blocky.

    OK, it sort of worked. I ended up with no background, but actually decided I like it better. Just out of curiosity, any ideas on why the black background disappeared? Here’s the code I substituted:

    #header {
    background: 444;
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-height: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 100%;

    looks like the difference is a pound sign. To have a color show up, you have to have a # just before it:

    Correct:

    #header {
    background: #444;
    }

    Incorrect:

    #header {
    background: 444;
    }

    Thanks. That’s why we sometimes need other eyes to look at things — hard to see when we get sloppy ourselves.

    Yup, Susanna! I’ve been there. Couldn’t figure out for the life of me why a color wasn’t showing up :) The crazy pound sign, of course. You can mark this topic resolved, if you got what you need :)
