mergatrude: a hermit crab peering from it's shell with the text "lurker" (Default)

Hi there!

Confession: I lurk around this community and pinch bits of CSS from other posts, tinkering with them to achieve the look I want. This means I don't really know what I'm doing.

I'm currently in the process of setting up [community profile] mcu_onyourleft using Practicality and a 800x200 banner.

I've stolen this bit of code and adapted it, but am not sure what adjustment to make in order to get the left side of the second column lined up with the left side of the banner. Does anyone have some advice?

html body {
padding-top: 0;
#header {
display: none;
#content {
background: url( no-repeat 8px 0;
padding: 205px 0 0;
width: 808px;

I'm tizzying up the [community profile] month_of_june with a banner, however I can't figure out how to get the banner to either:

1) move down in the header so it's below (and no longer covered by) the "Recent Entries/Archive/Member Posts/Tags/Memories/Profile" links bar, or

2) move the links bar so it's below the header, or

3) if I put the banner in using

#canvas {
background-image: url(;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top center;
padding-top: 200px;
} (snaffled from another post to this community)

how do I remove the dark grey header bar?

(Level of expertise = c&p code and change the numbers)

Thank you kindly!

I'm using Underworld for Crossroads, and the header is cooking my noodle. I would love to reduce the height of the header to... pretty much what's needed for the navigational elements, now I've figured out how to insert an image as title. I've checked the page source, but... either it's been way too long since I worked with CSS last, or the header elements are on an external style-sheet somewhere.

Can I do this at all, or do I need to make my very own style from scratch?

Also... I think I might like to move the navigation module to the left down just a smidgen. Anybody got pointers to that effect?

First post for 2012!

So I'm trying to edit the layout I'm currently using. I tweaked some of the original CSS to accomodate my new header. I set the height to 200px since the image height is exactly 200px. But I noticed that there seems to be an extra few couple of pixels and that my header repeats.

This is the relevant CSS:

#header {
background:url("") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
border:2px dashed #2D231C;

I tried removing repeat scroll 0 0 transparent from the CSS but that just resulted in the entire header (plus the border) to disappear. Help?

I'm new to DW and need some help. I'm fooling around with Modular right now on my journal and have hit a snag. I want to shorten the journal header, previous 5 and the top of page footer to the left so it's even with what I've done so far. What coding would effect these? At first I though header and whatnot but nothing so far has worked.
