Damn these banners!!

I can not get my banner to occupy the left and right margin areas. It stays within an invisible boundary,

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

I'm unsure what exactly your asking.  Are you talking about the same margins that specific how much area is between the content boxes and the edge of the page?  Are you talking about the banner being smaller than the width of the content boxes and wanting to stretch it to match?

I believe it is the space between the content box and area of page (for the banner area). My website is listed as a link under my signature if you have a chance to examine it you will see.

I have noticed many other pages with the banner filling out the whole screen top, left to right, and I would like to capable of doing the same.

Thank you.

hum....let me play around and see if I can figure out a way to do it.  The only way at the moment that I know how is to make the actual banner image wider.  I usually make banners so that they are 950 to 1000px wide so that they fit all the way across when viewed at 1024x768.  If the resolution is higher, the image will obviously not stretch all the way across.  To make my page look more uniform, regardless of resolution viewed at (unless its viewed at less than 1024x768) I set the total page width to the same width as the banner (you can check out my page in my sig for an example).

Anyways, let me play around and see what I can come up with.  There are a lot of people on here that are better with coding them me though, so hopefully one of them will see this and chime in

erm...try this...not sure if it will work how your wanting, but worth a shot.  In the custom banner html area:

<img src="IMAGE URL HERE" style="width: 99%;">

Thanks for helping me out. I tried posting the URL but it actually made it smaller. I am updating the banner so I will try the resolution again. If you get any more intel let me know. TY.

By the way, your site lines up on all sides. Thats what Im trying to get.

Actually, there is really no way to "stretch" an image without losing quality.

I'm not sure, and I will test this theory when I buy a subscription and have header HTML access, but...

Perhapsa simple table, combined with a couple .png images, each in it's owntd, and one repeating table background would work for you.

Actually, I just put up an example of how to do it.

I hope that helps!

Awww....ok.  What I did, in order to get it to just all line up (not necessarily stretch the page) was first to make the banner image (or flash in my case) 950px wide.  I then set the rest of the page to be 950px wide.  This ensured that the content of the site was in line with the edges of the banner.  Obviously, you can choose to make the image and set the page at whatever width you choose though.  I used 950 so that it would work well on 1024x768 resolutions and higher.  There is a setting in your control panel for the width of the page(Control Panel > Styles & Colors > Page Styles > Width under the body content section).  If you are using custom CSS, stick this into your body section (substituting the 950 for whatever you want the width to be):

width:950px;


Hope that helps some.  RL got busy and I wasn't able to check out this site to see if you'd gotten it yet to work how you wanted yet.
