    On my pages: http://parent-2-parent.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=116

    I have put my logo in the header template, but I would like the pink bar to sit right on top of the navigation/welcome area. I found a way to do it but it means deleting the end of the template:
    <!-- content table -->
    $welcomeheaders

    The reason I'm trying to change all this is that *SOME* of my members are having difficulty staying logged in. It was suggested that it was the styles that are the problem. I created a new style and am working on it to see if I can resolve the problem. Below I'm copying 2 versions of my header template. (MOST of my templates have been altered). The first is what I HAD on my forums. The second is the reverted template with my logo etc. added to the header file.

    Examples of how each version looks:
    OLD header: http://parent-2-parent.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=2
    New Reverted Style Header: http://parent-2-parent.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=116

    Code for each header attached. I couldn't include it in the body of my post.

    I am going to have to go through each template in my styles to see how they were altered and why. I don't know what could be causing difficulty with my members stayng logged in.

    Are these codes needed?
    $spacer_open
    $_phpinclude_output

    I would like the gap under the pink bar gone as it was in the old code.

    Any help appreciated.

    $spacer_open is needed or your forums will not display correctly. $_phpinclude_output is only needed if you have a plugin that requires it.

    Look in your navbar template and remove any <br /> tags at the top of the template. $welcome_headers is from an addon so you would have to check its templates to see if there are any <br /> tags as well to remove any unwanted line breaks.

      Thanks. I did that and no luck. Here's the navbar template:

        I just wanted to add that I deleted that part of the template over a year ago, and never noticed any difference other than the gap going away.

        Would that have anything to do with the problems members are having staying logged in?

          I can't think of why it would prevent users from logging in.

          Looking at your page output, it appears there is a <br /> tag in the spacer_open template. At the bottom. You can remove that as well.

          For login issues, see what ISP these users are utilizing and whether they are on dial-up or broadband. They may simply need to check the "Remember Me" box when they login.

            Thanks... supposedly they are clicking that. I have a whole list of things to do on our site. Cookie issues, click remember me, etc. It's frustrating.
