Hi guys n gals :thumbsu:

I use Pagelines Platform Pro, and I've designed a header that's ready to upload, and I want it to be full width. I can't do a background image, because I have shadows outlining my content of the blog which will show as gray vertical lines in the fake header. I've tried all sort of css code, and none of it has worked so far. If anyone can please help me, that would be fantastic :-)

Also, my original intent with this header was to have 5 links mapped on it, which I've done on an external mapping site. I have html code for the image that I wish to use as my header. Is there any way that I can use that? Maybe with the Simply Custom section installed in the branding section in the drag-and-area? And then make that section full-width? This is the website from which I got the idea: http://www.urbanswankblog.com

Thanks in advance :bow:

I'm bumping the above plea in hopes that someone who knows the answer will see it and respond. :-)

Platformpro is no longer supported and and adding this may be problematic if it is possible at all. It is recommend that you upgrade to a modern recent PageLines Product. More recent PageLines products are easier to work with. 

 

You can choose from the Framework Which is available free on GitHub here https://github.com/p...Lines-Framework

 

Also the free version of the DMS 1 system is available on the Wordpress theme page here http://wordpress.org/themes/dms

 

You will be able to achieve much better results with a more up to date product and as Wordpress introduces new features and web architecture changes PlatformPro will become less useable.

I've uploaded it into wordpress, but haven't switched themes yet. Will it mess up my current site, or will it accept all of my plugins and CSS changes? Do I need to spend a lot of time re-configuring my Platform Pro site?

I upgraded to the free DMS (can't pay for what I don't know will work) and am still having trouble with the header. With literally everything else being able to be resized, recolored, etc... I truly  thought the header would be just as simple :-(
