Solved Category Header image starting over at breaks.

Post by Castellana on August 25th 2013, 12:48 am

Hello! Hello

I'm having an appearance problem with the Category headers on my forum.
http://cvas.forumotion.com/ phpBB2

Here is the image I recently uploaded to be my Category Header image:

It's 800 px X 39 px. Notice how it starts lighter at the left end and gets darker towards the right end. This is because it's a crop of a photo of the sky.

So here is the issue: The image is starting over again on the breaks, i.e., "Topics" "Posts" and "Last Posts."
Here is a screen shot showing that:


How do I get it not to do that but to just show the whole image all the way across, unbroken? Is there a way?
Thanks!

Its doing that because the forum is phpbb2 and using table coding, and the table is starting a new <th where the topics, posts, last posts, starts, so I would take your same image and download it, and do a horizontal flip in a image editor with it, then upload the new image and use that for the other <th part of the table.

It won't blend perfectly because it won't begin exactly where the first image left off, but I don't see anyway around it because the table is starting a new <th at that point.

Because its tables and it starts a new <th, you'd actually be better off using a gradient image that goes vertically, so it won't matter how wide it is and will blend perfectly.

Thanks, Runaway Horses. Very Happy

I followed your advice and flipped the original image 180.
The header is now an overall darker blue with light blue break lines. IMO, this looks much better and solves the original problem. The Calendar widget shows the effect to an advantage as each day comes out separated from the other.

Thanks again and thanks for explaining about the tables.
Solved!
