SPECIFIC GRAPHICS QUESTIONS

Post on this entry with any specific questions you have concerning layouts or graphics. Examples might be: having trouble getting your header to show up, you can’t figure out how to change a certain colour, etc. Make sure to check the general checklist before posting! You may choose to post to the actual entry instead, but if you do your question may go unanswered for a week. If you post here, your question will be answered much sooner.

GENERAL CHECKLIST FOR LAYOUT TROUBLESHOOTING

» My layout looks all messed up!?

Make sure that “Use layout’s stylesheet(s)” is set to either Yes or No, depending on which the layout requires. (Just check the entry – it’s bolded and labeled “very important”, you can’t miss it)

» My entries are starting halfway down the page?

Make sure to cut all large images, fonts, tables, quizzes, etc. If you’re still having issues, consider decreasing the width of the #maincontent by about 10px.

» My header isn’t showing up, even though I’ve followed all the instructions?

Make sure of the following:

a. You’ve correctly entered the height and width. The width: ###px; height: ###px; should be changed to read something like this: width: 500px; height: 200px;. Obviously, these need to match the actual height and width of your image.
b. Make sure you have the correct URL of the image, and that it is entered correctly. The background-image: url(URL OF IMAGE HERE); line should read like this: background-image: url(http://i18.tinypic.com/4r07sar.png); If you are using Tinypic, make sure you have copied the line that says “Direct Link for Layouts”.

If your question is not answered above, keep reading!
