Anyone good with CSS or wordpress? Baffled

by 2 comments
hey guys,

I have a problem that is really baffling me and here goes....

There are many great free wordpress themes but the problem I'm having is finding one which I can add my own graphical header!

There are some were it already has a graphic in place you then simply swap it with yours right, but some of the good ones I have come across are just colored headers with text and in the code it says:

"margin: 0; padding: 0;
font: 71%/1.5em Verdana, 'Trebuchet MS', Arial, Sans-serif;
background: url(images/headerbg-blue.gif) repeat-x;
color: #666666;
text-align: center; "

which from what I can make out means take the image (headerbg-blue.gif) and repeat it and fill the header area right?

Well how do I get rid of that and replace the plain colored header with my own graphic header? Its not as simple as just replacing one thats already there as there is none but this very small graphic colored bar which is duplicated to fill the area!!!

I have tried to explain the best I can hope you understand.

Please anyone with CSS/wordpress skills please help me out.

huge thanks

    If the site has a static width, you could create a graphic called headerbg-blue.gif which is the same size and width as the header area.

    And replace repeat-x with no-repeat.

    Depending on the theme it should work.

    Kindest regards,

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
