Why not make it a gif, with a transparent background?


It won't need to fit, then. Unless it's a graphic, rather than text...
Its a unfinished graphic, transparency is not possible. Any help would be welcome

This may sound stupid but why not finish it then make it transparent?

Its a photo, not simple words. I cant use transparency, and I want it to fill the whole width of the header

Result!


Heaven knows why the code I put threw up that error, though.


Weird.

Thanks tfs, that s kind to say!

but that's because of all the animated graphics. if i strip them out its only 130k,, the fireworks graphics alone are 2.5 meg, then theres the hearts and searchlights etc.

Thanks St. Kat for the help i'm so much further than i was. I just keep on trying with my banner till it's right.  ;)


z3zus, i think we have kind of the same problem.
What is the width of the banner you're using on the picture?

I will explain here my problem.
I want my image to fill the gaps that I point at with red arrows in the attached SS, so the image matchs the whole width of my forum (not the dark blue background)
I attach my index.template too, the name of the image is logo1.jpg
Thanks


I have the same issue -- I don't want my forum to extend beyond the width of my banner, and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to take out the padding (I assume) that is making this happen.  I've set my forum to be the width of my banner, and taken out the only padding that seemed possible in my css file, but that only took out some padding from the top. 

I just want a nice, straight, clean forum that extends perfectly down on both sides from my banner image. 

If anyone can help, it'd be most appreciated.  By the way, I'm running 2.0 RC2.
