New Banner Finally!!

Have been playing around with my CSS code all afternoon in order to get my blog's banner up.... Voila, it's finally done! To match the lovely deep red borders, I've changed the background color to a light shade of pink! Hope you lovely readers will not have any problems seeing the photo-banner in your browsers... enjoy!

PS: Now if only I can get my blogbanner (in individual post page and on archive page) to redirect back to my blog home url... anyone who can help or has some clue to offer.. please let me know!

I have not found the redirection yet. Will have to ask my son. I also would like to click on the banner and be redirected home.

Your new banner looks lovely.

it looks great,
I think you just need a new blank background image to anchor the heading too. I have one still in the middle of the LHS of my banner.... tooo lazy to make it full size....

Looks great! EC :) feels so good doesn't it?

hi clare, you've just given me another problem to solve "new blank background image to anchor heading" - that sounded totally greek to me, will now have to go back to drawing board... any clues as to the CSS code for this and where am I supposed to place this?
Still, until then, yup, I'm feeling pretty proud of meself :)

thanks Julia for your kind words!

pretty! :D

i'm not sure about this at all but i think it's because you set your banner as a background so you cant hyperlink it. if you inserted it into your html code instead you can then insert the ahref tags to direct it back to your homepage..

Cath, congrats on the new banner. It's fantastic, I love the little rosebuds.

Are you giving lessons on how to put a banner up as I am hopeless in CSS code?

thanks gwenda - in the meantime, need to fiqure out which part of the html code to insert pic reference and also the ahref tags you referred to... sigh, this will probably take some time...

thanks boo - hardly think I'm qualified as yet to give any lessons, still muddling through the CSS code... :)

I am also in the process of finding a banner for my boring blog. Any idea where I can start with? Did you design this? Looks beautiful.

dear PM, the best would be to use a picture that you like or have taken and crop it (using Photoshop or other digital photography software) to the relevant banner size (for mine, I think it was 660 x 200), do some word editing, and finally play around with your blog's template.. a word of warning, save your existing template before doing any edits in case you need to reinstate your original template!
