I’m new to genesis, so please forgive me for being a newbie.
Hopefully this will be helpful to other beginners.
I’m using the magazine child theme.
I have some things I wanted to change on my site http://tvjunkee.com.
– Change the header to have the same width as my content.
– Header image is actually squished in, how do I correct it to get my full image? The image is 508 X 137.
– Have all of my background blue, even around the header.
– Drop down my nav bar so it’s next to or on top of my content.
I appreciate any help.
I’ve been going through the read-only forum looking for info but haven’t found it.
I have the simple hooks plugin but not sure what code to use.
Set a width to the #wrap rule. That is where the black background is coming from. The header is actually already the same width as your content.
The image you upload in Appearance=>Header needs to be at the exact dimensions specified so put your 508×137 logo onto a transparent canvas that is set at those dimensions and export that with transparency intact.
If you want the blue above the header you can add a top margin to #wrap.
Not sure what you mean regarding the navbar
Thanks for the reply.
I’m trying to get rid of the black background, I found #wrap for the body but there’s no where to change the width.
Do I need to look somewhere else?
I have a couple wraps for content sidebar with widths.
Is that it?
And do I change it to 960px?
Also not sure where to add a top margin to #wrap to get blue above the header.
background: url(images/wrap.png) repeat-x;
margin: 0 auto;
Do I just add it?
Thanks for the help.
That was easy.
One last question – How do I get rid of the grey bar and login in the top right hand corner of my site?
I looked in editor but didn’t see anything that seemed related.
Thanks for all your help.
