Station Pro: Header, PhotoBlog Background Questions

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi. I'm using the StationPro theme and it's great! I have a few questions: I want to extend my header to the entire width of the pages, but I'm blocked by the Facebook, Twitter and RSS icons (maybe more, I'm not sure). I've tried altering code, but nothing's working. Any tips? Also, I would love the option of changing the background color and perhaps the content boxes to white. I know it's meant to be dark, but wanted to know if it is possible to do? Finally, I use the YAPB plugin yet can't get my pictures to look like this (ex. http://blurbomat.com/archives/2009/10/26/power-tree-another-angle/). Is this plugin compatible with the theme?

Sure, to do this you'll need to remove the defined height on the header element and set the 'absolute' position of your icons (facebook, linkedin, etc..) in the css document. Have you used Firebug?
Also, I would love the option of changing the background color and perhaps the content boxes to white. I know it's meant to be dark, but wanted to know if it is possible to do?
Background color is easy, set it by adjusting the 'background' property of the body element. Changing content boxes to white is a little more difficult.
Finally, I use the YAPB plugin yet can't get my pictures to look like this (ex. http://blurbomat.com/archives/2009/10/26/power-tree-another-angle/). Is this plugin compatible with the theme?
We haven't specifically tested it with the theme but the themes are built to be universally compatible with plugins that play nice:) The only issue could be potential javascript conflicts. Again something you may see with Firebug.

Thanks so much for the tips, but I think I may be doing something wrong with the header. This is what it looks like now with the height removed. Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong? (I am using Firebug, now. Thank you!)

Did it cause a problem with the background color? Its hard to tell exactly what's going on from the pic.
