Evening gents!

So an issue with my custom box borders has seemed to arise. Upon logging in to guildportal today I noticed that the custom borders on our guild site had a strange gap near the top on all content widgets.

Here's the site:  http://www.vanquishtoday.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=454291&TabID=3902872

Here's an image of the problem:



As you can see there's a few pixel gap at the top. All the borders are made to guildportals default image sizes (13x29, etc). With that said, is there any other setting I can change to fix this issue?

Thank you for your time!

Having the same problems on all of my sites.

Gap (approx 3px) between Header and Navigation.
Gap (approx 3px) right below widget topbar - between top elements and left/right topimage.

Both have the appearance of a duplicate upper row.

Think thats the same thing we are seeing - these lines were not here before and calendar was not outlined in white before.

Ours is worse.  I have no idea what happened. None of us messed with anything other than the Progression bar.  It's like this on Firefox and Crome. 
If anyone has a fix I would be very grateful.  This is driving me nuts and I'm the webmaster! PanicBOOM!

@Giznat. It actually looks like the problem is in the folder name... the parenthesis in the name is breaking the background image link, so instead of finding:

http://www.guildportal.com/GuildFiles/454291/Design_Files_(Giznat)/Widget_Borders/Box_Border_Bottom.png

it's only looking for 

http://www.guildportal.com/GuildFiles/454291/Design_Files_(Giznat

which doesn't exist. So, rename your folder to something like "Design_Files_Giznat" instead.

Thanks for the response Mottie! Quick question, when I try to rename the folder it's giving me a message about access being denied (ruh roh!). Any suggestions?

Sorry, not a clue. I haven't added any folders, changed or moved anything because so many of my scripts would break if I did LOL. Maybe instead of renaming, just make a new one and move everything over.
