Hello guys, I'm having a slight problem. I can't seem to get rid of the black box around the title of my content box. I set the image properly, at least I think I did, in the Box Header/Title area. Any suggestions?

The site can be found here...http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=269540&TabID=2263098

Thanks in advance guys.

It's hard to tell what's going on since you used the built in content box editor.

I can see that your image UU.jpg isn't repeating like it should. So the only think I can think of would be to either remove any link you have in the "Top Left Content Area" and see if that works or make your UU.jpg image a lot wider.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

GP sets a default fixed width of 159 pixels on the Top Left Content Area. You need to fill it with a 159 pixel image as it will not repeat for that box.

EDIT: Just to be accurate, it will repeat in that box if you use one of the Pre-set Box Images, although it doesn't for custom images.


Alternatively, I recommend using Moddie's Mod for Custom Borders. This will allow you to utilize your current images (and no "fixed width"). He has a great detailed write up complete with cut and paste code and graphical illustration:

Thanks for the help guys! The length of the file was the exact problem.

The only thing you can do is remove the borders from one or more columns of the page (left, center or right). You can also do this depending on which tab you are on, but you'll have to define the custom HTML for each column - read how to do that here.
