Blog changes and a little help

So, now that you are here, you can see there are changes to the blog.

However, I am having issues and wonder if anyone out there could help me with these problems.

Still need help:
1. I got the banner up, just not centered. Sigh.

Fixed:
1.Date
2.Chitika ads


I am sure I will have more problems as I keep going, but I hope someone could help me with this.

  1. Some of the issues could be errors in the blog template itself. I was having issues with dates when I was reformatting last week. I moved on to other templates.

    As for the ad, I did lots of text searches (CTRL+F in Firefox) to find those little pieces of code that don't make a lot of sense. Have you tried doing a text search for 'Chitika'?

    Best of luck! There's some cool elements on the template if you can get them working.

  2. as far as the header picture, if it's the wrong size (ie too big dimension wise or data wise) it won't work.

  3. I did a search for chitika and i scanned the html, but i can't seem to find it.

    the place I downloaded the template said just do a search for chitika and I should find it.

    Except I didn't.

  5. I'm sorry to say that I am unable to help with your problems. I am computer illiterate, and not very bright to begin with.

    However, I did run across what promises to be a fantastic pancake recipe the other day. If that would be any help.

    BTW, I'm the one with the deleted comment. I had forgotten the word "pancake" and it made very little sense.

  6. i feel like banging my head against the wall.

  7. If doing a text search within Blogger, just be sure, make sure you click on "Expand Widget Templates". It's possible it could be hiding in there.

    As for the date, I am clueless at this point, but I'll check back later to see if you're still havign the problem and will try it again.

  8. Kevin, I did that a few minutes and finally figured it out.

    Then, realized what I was doing wrong with the date fix. So now, I got that.

    the only thing left is for me to figure out how to get the picture to work without my faux fix.

  11. Currently, the div that holds your banner is floating to the left with a margin of zero, hence it's left-aligned.

    To center it, you need to remove the float and set both the left and right margins to auto.

    you have:
    #header{
    float: left;
    width: 723px;height:198px;
    background-image:url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Y49Ull47phg/SV5H2_Y2c_I/AAAAAAAAAOA/5enAyLlsSBY/S1600-R/ACardboardProblem.jpg);
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }


    you need:
    #header{
    width: 723px;height:198px;
    background-image:url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Y49Ull47phg/SV5H2_Y2c_I/AAAAAAAAAOA/5enAyLlsSBY/S1600-R/ACardboardProblem.jpg);
    margin:0 auto;
    padding:0;
    }

  14. Has anyone thanked you for using the Baltimore Orioles color scheme for your new blog? If not....well thank you :)

    It looks good!

  15. I thought about that, and I've thought about changing the colors to navy blue, eventually.

    Don't thank us yet. :)
