I added the gray border to the #header area in the code above: border-top: 60px solid #B8B8B8;
Would it have been better to add an actual widget?May 22, 2013 at 10:43 am in reply to: Header background image, Overlay Logo On Top of Nav Bar & Split Nav Bar Items #42218
Sorry. The thread got lost in my email. I’d love to. I just need to remember exactly what it was. Once I do, I’ll definitely post it here.
The only thing is, that it’s a quick fix and not a permanent one. What I did shifts the menu based on how wide your screen is. So, if the image is on top of the menu, a menu item might be behind the image if you’re on an iPad, but visible if you’re on the computer.
Thanks for the tip on the intrusion. I was actually having issues with my SSL and figured out the forced SSL option in better work was causing the conflict. Had to turn that piece off so the SSL could work properly and push checkout into https mode. Thanks for thoroughly help Joyce.
I even installed WordPress manually just so I could create my own database names, usernames and such. thanks for taking the time to answer my thread.
Thanks for your suggestions. I had the hacking issues nov to jan with a different host. I have implemented a lot of security items since then including better wp security (last month) and other things you suggested above. My passwords and usernames are all extremely crazy looking now. I can’t even remember them. I guess I’ll just go ahead with disabling the author archives. That’s the only thing I haven’t done. Thanks.
Nevermind…she figured it out
Ok.. I’m testing the column classes on a test page so I can put it into the widget created http://www.njdigitalmoms.com/250-2-test/
The first row is a paragraph – no column class. I just put in text.
followed by the mapped image
And then an area with 2 column class
It looks ok, but I’m trying to get the colors the same as seen in the footer. I tried a variety of background color inserts and it’s not working. and when the background color does show up the text is either above or below the colored box and the colored box doesn’t span the entire area of the page like the footer. lol.
Awesome. Thanks Brad. I’ll check out the tutorials for the local installation.
Going to test out the column classes with multiple rows on page and see how that comes out. Thanks.
I have nicknames for users, but the nicknames don’t show up in the URL link when you go to an author’s archive. The actual username does. For instance… http://www.domainname.com/author/yipp786skhu as opposed to /author/rita
Hi Brad. With the column classes, would I the div code directly into the widget?
With regard to installing WP locally, I’ve never tried that… Would you by chance know of a tutorial I could follow?
Brad – curious… can I use the content columns in the nav? I’m trying to break up the nav bar on the site so I can have a left and a right one. right now I’m using padding to break it up and it’s not working well…
awesome. Thanks for that link. I’ll give it a look and try it out.
Ok. So, I figured out a work around. It’s a bit of a “dirty” fix, but it works and did want I wanted.
I installed a plugin to get a widget below the footer: BNS Add Widget
Then I installed TablePress. I used three tables to create the look I needed and one large mapped image.
I would have rather utilized the code for the custom welcome text box, the footer widget and the footer, but there were so many different things I couldn’t figure out.
Thanks for your effort in trying to figure out the original code Brad. Much appreciated.
I’m thinking it’s not going full width of the screen because it’s in the #inner frame. I extended the padding and the text is getting cutoff and I added the width to 100%, but it’s just stops at the end of the #inner borders.
I tried the genesis_after_loop, but the box shows up on other pages when using it, so I think the genesis_after_content_sidebar_wrap is the way to go if it can sit outside the #inner right like the footer widget.
Thanks for your help/time on this Brad. I appreciate it.
Now that I’m staring at the #inner I realize I had the wrong padding in there hence not getting it to go flush.
I changed it, but it’s not quite there. Is it b/c of the border radius?
margin: 100px auto 1px;
padding: 70px 10px 0;
