New banner


testing Posted by Hello

Can anyone give me a tip as to how to delete the old one off my template? I can't seem to pinpoint the exact html to eliminate.

I wish I could help you, man. Not familiar at all with Blogger. With typepad, I would go into the Control Panel, and go into the Files, then look in the PiratesCove folder, and the "picture" files would be there. I wiped a whole bunch of my practice uploads for my banner.

BTW, I like the new one. Looks good

Hey, I had the same problem with mine and I will try to remember how I did it. Right now it's after 3am in Georgia and my brain isn't working too terribly well! Anyway, I'll get back with you tomorrow about that!! Talk to ya later..

Nixon,
I viewed the source to you page and I believe if you delete this line of code:

img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/img/227/1354/640/banner.jpg"It should go away. Not sure but it looks like you used blogger as an online storage for the banner. If that doesn't work. Send me an e-mail.

Nixon,
This comments section is having a hard time letting me post html. This goes along with the first comment, this is the first part of the code that needs to be deleted.

a href="http://nixon1971.blogspot.com

I did have to get rid of a couple of open and close tags, (ie <>) but I think you can figure it out.

How can an OU fan live in the heart of Hog country?

Nixon,
I went back and read you post again. Were you talking about the old, plain, maroon, template, that just has Nixon Memoirs?

If that is the case let me know, I think I can help with that also.

Yeah, it's the plain one below that I'm looking to get rid of, and leave my new one.

Well, I'm an OU alumni, and no, its not easy with all these SEC Sooner-Haters around here. You know I actually had to listen to crap like "Hey, at least Arkansas WON their bowl game!" last year?

Thanks for your help.

Ok I think I got it figured out. I was in the process of changing my header anyway, so this worked out good.
First go to
/*Blog Header, and delete the following

{
background:#710 url("http://www.blogblog.com/rounders2/corners_cap_top.gif") no-repeat left top;
margin:0 0 0;
padding:8px 0 0;
color:#fff;
}
Make sure you get the beginning and ending paratheses or they will show up on the header.

If you want to put the new banner where the old header was located, do the following. Scoll down to
!-- Blog Header --

Take out the following

h1 id="blog-title"

Nixon's Memoirs

h1
p id="description""A great writer is, so to speak, a second government in his country. And for that reason no regime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones."
-Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn /p

and replace it with the following image file, which I believe is your banner.

img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/img/227/1354/640/banner.jpg"

I had to leave out a few of the < > signs, for some reason it won't let me leave them in the comments if it is a closed tag.
Just remember to preview before saving.

Hopefully this helps, if not let me know and we'll try again.

Thanks, man, I really appreciate the help. I think I've always known just enough HTML to be dangerous, but not very effective. I like the results.

Hey, looks like you got it!! I changed my template around and it literally took me ALL afternoon to get it right!! I really like you're new banner though! It's great! Sorry I was late in getting back to you to help but I've been swamped down here in GA..funny now that I am not working, I'm staying busier..geez..what's up with that!! OK, well, I'll check back tomorrow..Hopefully I'll have some time to catch up with my favorite blogs!! Julie
