Thanks! I've spent the whole day pulling my hair out because blogger kept stretching out my image. So, I followed your other tip about adding a "page element" in the header to put my banner in, and then hiding the title.

Oh. My. God! You are a life saver! Your tip gave me the header i've meant to had for a while. Thank you very much!

Sara Moon said...

Thanks a bunch, my header title bleed through my image, but I need the description which comes out below it. I also have a box as part of the design with a random number in it that I can't get rid of... odd.
Hopefully I can find the answer with folks like you around!

Vin said...

Mark Harris,

What is the blog address?

Mark Harris said...

I tried entering your code after each header entry as shown, but one at a time. I always get the error:
More than one widget was found with id: Feed2. Widget IDs should be unique.
I get that for every edit I have ever tried. I also tried importing templates and it will not accept them either.

Vin said...

Mark Harris,

The above post does not mention any code to be added after each header entry!

The code line has to be added in the CSS part of the template WITHIN the header code.

What code did you add? You seem to have added a Feed widget code! Also see :

Error Messages in Blogger Templates.

Have you added the Blog Description by :

going to Settings--->Basic---->Description--->Add Description and Save Settings.

Hey vin, does following these instructions make my blog harder to find on google?

Because I only want the flash file as the header. There's a minor header on top of this flash header which I would like to hide:

Vin said...


Google does not index Flash files. To make blog easier to find on Google see Top 10 SEO Tips for Blogs.

Neat little fix and it did the trick, but I still have a problem. My page title is part of the background image of the blog. When I set the header to display:none, my first blog post moved up and is now sitting on top of the part of my image that is the page title!

Can you help?

Rei Zerburnn said...

I actually figured out a fix to my problem!

Instead of changing the header code to include display:none, I added a visibility toggle and set it to hidden, then I changed the font size until it was big enough to keep my posts from encroaching on my background image, like this:

#header-wrapper h1 {
font: normal 5em Tahoma,sans-serif;

It worked a charm, check it out.

Thanks for your tutorial, it got me pointed in the right direction.

i'm pleating with you said...

Thanks, that was very helpful!

super iota said...

THANK YOU! Worked instantly and your instructions were easy to understand.

I have been struggling with finding an answer to this problem after I edited some of the html code for the basic blogger Minama template to a 3-column layout. The usual manner of control this through customize – page layout – header – edit produced no results. I have been pulling my hair out over this, Thank you, now I can continue with my design plans!
