  • My Logo Image in 'Image Path' Query

    I have a little problem. My banner image for my site in 'Image Path' in Common Templates doesn't stretch all the way across - there is a little block of colour where the background colour shows through. Is there something I can adjust so that it does? I've tried quite a few changes but I've found nothing to do this. It lokks kind of silly.

    If you take a quick look at my site you'll see instantly what I mean.

    Everyone here has been so helpful in the past and I'd be very grateful for this, hopefully last piece of advice!

    Thank you!

    Edit StyleVars
    Main Table Width (pixels or percentage) [940]
    (This is the width of the table that contains all your vBulletin content)

    Another is to stretch it from header template.

    HTML Code:
    <!-- logo -->
    <a name="top"></a>
    <table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
    <tr>
    	<td align="center"><a href="index.php?"><img src="images/woodlander.jpg" border="0" width="940" height="120" alt="Woodland Poets Community" /></a></td>
    	
    </tr>
    </table>
    <!-- /logo -->
    It is better to make it fixed width or client side screen resolution for anything greater or less than 1024X768 will look bad.

      This looks fantastic Jose, I'm almost there!

      But... I only make these changes once in a very blue moon so I'm rusty as hell (I never caught the jagon well in the first place to tell you the truth!)

      Could I trouble you to perhaps give me a little more of a step by step process to get where I'm aiming? I'd particularly like to take the client side screen resolution if I could.

      Thank you for your fantastic help so far!

        Update: I've managed the first bit, changed from 100% to 940. Great!

        I'd love to change the settings so each user gets a good screen resolution to suit them so the site looks right.

        Thanks so much, this is great!

              I am sure if you use advance search option and use my name, it will popup somewhere on that forum.

                  Jose, I'm still vainly trying to get this banner to look right. I had to undo the 940 setting because I had a complaint the whole forum had become scewed and difficult to read. His setting was 900x600. So I had to revert to the 100% setting.

                  So, I copied and pasted in your reccomendation above:
                  <!-- logo -->
                  <a name="top"></a>
                  <table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
                  <tr>
                  <td align="center"><a href="index.php?"><img src="images/woodlander.jpg" border="0" width="940" height="120" alt="Woodland Poets Community" /></a></td>

                  </tr>
                  </table>

                  <!-- /logo -->

                  But my screen still shows the cream bits to either side of the banner.

                  Am I doing something wrong?

                    If you set you forum fixed width to 900 or less then do the same for image. I have [strike_temp]no[/strike_temp] easily done this.

                      I'm very sorry Jose, I'm having difficulty understanding what you mean. I'm confused and your few words don't enlighten me much. I'm beginning to think this is beyond me. Sorry...

                        I never heard a monitor setting 900 x 600 unless it is a document reader monitor that you can tilt on its side. I have not sen those for over 5 years. I myself was search for something that can display documents in full. Most monitors are geared toward video media.

                        If you set fixed width within StyleVars and make it the same edit to image, you should be able to correct that smalll problem.
