Delete margins in header

Recommended Posts

djcsuomi

I would like to eliminate the margins on the header of the page so that there is a clean split in colors between the header and the rest of the page. For example, www.nuyeek.com does exactly what I am looking for. How can I do this most easily? I can adjust the color of just the header with some css but the margin color doesn't go away. Any ideas? Thanks.

You can also use a background image for the page just for the header. I do that with my site: http://www.epicurus.com/Glossary or http://www.epicurus.com/beverages. In both cases, a simple, narrow image set to the height I wanted the header to be, by anything from 1 to 100px will be created (usually a .png or .gif. In the color of your choice. You upload it as the background image in Dashboard > PlatformPro > Design Control. Under the settings, you make sure the image is set to Repeat Horizontally; the vertical position set to "0" and the Horizontal to "50". This sounds complex, but it's incredibly simple and easy. Once the image is uploaded, "0" means top of the page, all the way across and the original image is dead center of the page. It spreads across from center to both edges. The Branding logo sits on top of it and your site looks nice, neat and with clean distinction between header and body. You can then play with the background colors in Design Control so your footer is a corresponding color.
