Header problem

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by headless, Nov 18, 2010.

    Hey all, I have just had a go at editing a premade template and i am having a problem with the header. I have put in a flash banner and want to increase the size of the banner and when i do it pushes the black menu bar up and the menu items down. I cannot seem to be able to edit the code to make the banner fit without moving the menu items around. Here is an example of the problem;

    I hope someone can help.
    Thanks

    That looks like a positioning issue. Either the Flash banner has a z-index set on it or there some other positioning conflicts going on.

    Some editing software will set a z-index when you move things around in graphic/design mode.

    z-index allows you to treat things like they are layered on the page so they can sit on top of each other.

    I've always found it better to just drop any z-index and use margins to position things.

    It's the header background file on the "header_resize" class in your stylesheet... ==>
    here is the image:
    [​IMG]

    You will need to recreate the image because of the height difference.

    OR

    Change to this:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. .header_resize { margin:0; padding:0; background:url(images/header_bg.gif) bottom repeat-x;}
    3.  

    Cheers!~

    You actually have a couple of issues going on there....

    At the very bottom of the page => This needs to be removed:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. <html>
    3. <head>
    4. <title>KKInstallations Client Area</title>
    5. </head>
    6. </html>
    7.  
    And You have an "in-page" stylesheet placement, that shouldn't be there:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. <!--//  ================================  POWERED By LOGO  ====  //-->
    3. <!--//  ========  Please visit www.revivedwire.com/Branding_Removal before removing the "Powered By Logo"  ====  //-->
    4. <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    5.  
    At the top of the page you are missing your <!doctype> and your opening <html> tag...
    There are multiple <body> tags and code just all over the place...

    Once cleaned up your footer issue will be resolved.. But you also have width: set at 940px on the footer so change that to 100%;

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. .footer_resize { width:940px; margin:0 auto; padding:0 10px 10px 10px; background:#161616;}
    3.  
    Hope that all helps!!

    Cheers again...! ( rep is always good if good advice and assistance is given!! wink wink ) Just kidding! :)
