Ocean Mist Theme (Problem with background and header)

  1. Hey i just purchase the upgrade for the CSS but then i notice there are something different about my blog now. My header picture cant be shown and the background is all blue. Anyone can point me to the right direction as to rectify this problem?

    p/s : It was fine before the upgrade though :(

  2. Have you made any changes to the CSS since buying the upgrade?

    Also, I remember reading in these forums a while ago that the Ocean Mist theme is not brilliantly written from a CSS point of view. If you're not experienced at editing CSS, you might want to try a different theme.

  3. no i did not make any changes.. well i kind of liked the theme though..

  4. Generally if you're using the CSS upgrade, you need to link to the header picture through the CSS and not using the normal custom header facility.

    My header picture cant be shown and the background is all blue.

    I have looked at your blog and I clearly understand that you have made NO css changes at all. What I see is the same thing that you describe above and it was the same thing we saw when this Ocean Mist theme was first introduced. And, I know that because I had the same problem with it on one of my blogs.

    Anyone can point me to the right direction as to rectify this problem?

    (1) You can let this post bounce around on the forum from blogger to blogger.
    (2) Or you can contact staff directly.

    IMHO your blog needs technical intervention by staff so I recommend the latter. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=19355

  6. Madpotato,

    By looking at your source code, wordpress is pulling your customized CSS code. It seems that you did modify your current stylesheet by copying the entire CSS code, modified the #mainpic selector and pasted the 'new' code back in the Stylesheet editor.

    Try this:

    Get rid of whatever code you have in the CSS Editor, and paste the following code:

    #mainpic {
    	background: #fff url('http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/631/mainpic01mu3.jpg') no-repeat;
    }

    Make sure that's the only code you have in there. Now, check the "Add to existing CSS (View stylesheet)" radio button. Save.

    This should fix your problem.

    HTH
