Need help with new background

Hey there! Mom and I have worked on getting this new background just right today by using the Template Designer in Blogger In Draft. We are really liking our new look except for the fact that neither she nor I can figure out how to center my header picture. It was always centered before and we didn't change any of that information. Does anyone have any helpful ideas?
We are hoping to get MY pictures off the old computer this week and can actually put some pics of me back on the blog. Here is an old favorite of mine:
 
Hope you all have a great week!

The look of contentment.

The blog looks great. We are at the mercy of the computer program. We don't know how to do most things. And half the time we do get something done, we don't know how it happened.

We have never designed and use a template. Maybe you could edit he photo by putting something next to it to make it a rectangle to center?

My Sons Mum said...

Sorry Madam Twix Im not going to be too much help either, but I wanted to tell you that we are having Kathleen paint my portrait. Very exciting. We were wondering if you got the canvas picture?

We love the new background and new look. We think you might need to check/uncheck the shrink to fit box in the header to center it. Play with it a bit and see. Otherwise onecuteblog.com has some instructions on how to change things around.

XOXO

I haves no idea about the centering, cuz I do Wordpress (although I wish I did Blogger). I hopes you figure it out but you look very pretty - centered or not. And I luvs the picture you put up today. You look very much dreamy!

Blog Mom says you'd have to fix that in the edit HTML section. She says always, always download your template before messing with that. And after downloading, remember where you buried it in case you need it again.

You'd probably want to "expand template widgets" and then look at that source code. There will be a place where it can be done, but it can be trial and error trying to figure out which place, depending on how the sections are named. Thet kind of trial and error that can make you lose a little fur in frustration. Maybe.

She's at work now, but would be willing to look later tonight if you wanted to copy your HTML code and send it over. Alternatively, a a new header the same size as the main content area might just be easier.

wags, Lola

What Lola said!

Pawrents spend hours messing with the codes and always end up losing doggie friends blog links! ^^; We doubt they are of any help regarding the layout.. sorry.

Anyhoo the new background is pawsome!!

I love the pink and green!
I just painted my bathroom that shade of green, the bedroom is next.

I hadn't even noticed the photo wasn't centered...

Hi, Twix!
Your new look is pawesome! I love it!
I guess Lola is giving you a good advice.
The person who created my template had to put it on my blog... because my mom was clueless about how to do it! Haaaa...
Kisses and hugs

Heather said...

The new layout looks GREAT!! We had the header problem once & I can't remember what we did to fix it. I think it had something to do with the headers or something. Hopefully Lola's help will get you to where you want to be! :o) But so far it looks FAB!!

Tank said...

Hi Twix - I've had the same problem before & don't have a clue how to fix it.

I did enjoy your date night. Thanks for including me!

Sandra said...

Oooh fancy. We like! Nice update to the blog. I wish we could help with the formatting but my Mom has "limited" knowledge and still uses the basic white background for hers...

Mr Koda MD said...

I'm still recuperating from Date Night so I'm no good, drunk far too much of that special water you had on tap!

Blog looks good!!! Mum had enough trouble getting her picture in the middle of my blog on one of the basic templates, turns out its 1208 pixels wide. Not sure about yours tho.. looking pretty tho!

We like the new look. Don't know about the centering problem.

Mango said...

Good luck with that. We recently entered the "blogger in draft" world and now can't figure out how to use the editor properly. But it does render a fine looking bloggy.

Slobbers,
Mango

miss twix,
your new bloggie background is stylin' and profilin'!! i totally dig it. :)
okie dokie, my mama wants me to ask you for your header picture centering...have you tried changing the widths of your bloggie in draft blogger? click template designer and then layout and then adjust width. my mama thinks maybe you need to adjust the width on your right sidebar?
*woof*

Lilly J said...

Hi there! I got your comment on ilovethewaysheblogs.blogspot.com. I'm not sure if someone suggested this yet, but you may need to redo your header with the same deminsions of your blog. There may be an easier way, but that's all that's coming to mind right now. Best of luck!

Hi Twix, love the new look. You are so cute, too. Was nice to visit you.
