Custom Header replacing Site Title (Spectrum Theme)

  1. Hi there

    I would like to replace my site title with a custom header. However, when I add a custom header it appears as part of the site further down. So my questions are:

    1) How do I remove my site title?

    2) How do I move my custom banner to where the site title is currently?

    3) An extra one... How do I remove the date from blog posts?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Quick note - I do have the custom design upgrade.

    Cheers

    Toby

    The blog I need help with is tobyelliottdotcom.wordpress.com.

  2. I looked at your website address http://www.tobyelliott.com/ and I found that you are using this image in your header there: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-kW2FgrXslxk/Tzl73SZFzcI/AAAAAAAAALQ/8Jj66Wh2MLA/s1600/Header5.png

    You can replace the site title with that image using this CSS:

    #logo h1 a {
    display: block;
    width: 960px;
    height: 184px;
    background: url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-kW2FgrXslxk/Tzl73SZFzcI/AAAAAAAAALQ/8Jj66Wh2MLA/s1600/Header5.png) no-repeat -20px;
    text-indent: -9999px;
    }
    #header {
    padding-bottom: 0;
    }

    Note that you can change out the image URL to something else if you'd like. If you do, you'll also want to adjust the width and height settings.

  3. I found that the Vodpod widget you added to your sidebar can be adjusted to fit better with something like this:

    .vp-widget-single {
      width: 240px !important;
    }
  4. Hi designsimply

    Thank you VERY much for the header answer - it is MUCH appreciated!

    The vodpod widget doesn't want to get smaller - any additional help with that?

    Many thanks

    Toby

  5. Please try this instead:

    div.vp-widget-single {
      width: 240px !important;
    }

    Let me know if it works.
