UPDATE: 5:55 PM
Thanks to all who have responded in comments or by email. You've been a great help.
We have loaded the banner in what should be the correct size (900 w) and it is still causing some to have to scroll right to view page. We checked and see what an earlier comment meant about the sidebar being all over the place. We assumed it was because we copied and pasted old code and the pix were different sizes. But now we see that with the larger banner, the contents of the entire sidebar have moved right and out of alignment.
Okay, we're stumped. Anyone have any idea what could cause this? Jan's going bald and mumbling about a bottle. We think she needs to be walked. And quickly. So we're off. We'll get back to this problem later. Meanwhile, we apologize for the lopsided page. We're stumped for the moment.
We are still working on this upgrade and are about to just revert back to the old classic template and give up. We need your input.
What looks okay with our monitor's resolution might look terrible on yours. We found a stretch template but no matter what we do, the photo won't stretch from side to side. We've been told it isn't fitting into the space allowed on one computer because it is short on the one end.
We have seen that happen when we tried to stretch the old header, but we can't see it now. Can you? Is the header photo centered? Lopsided? Is everything viewable in the sidebar or has the sidebar dropped to the bottom on your screen?
We did fonts and colors yesterday and lost them all again today when we changed templates again. So we're not doing any more until we get some feedback so we'll know whether to keep this or revert to the old JFF.
Jan says getting the car running again, paying bills and cleaning the house are more important than spending time on redecorating a blog. Our journal time is important to us, so please help us win this discussion. Vote for or against the new blog look. And be honest. If the header is lopsided, say so.
