Can i get rid of blank line after image on homepage message Empty Can i get rid of blank line after image on homepage message

Hi, i'm new to the site and have created this Forum, i've added a small image on the 'home page - message' bar (called Marilliam flowers) but it always creates a blank line underneath it, i've tried it also with plain text and it does the same Can i get rid of blank line after image on homepage message Guish2
Does anyone know of a way of eliminating the blank line so that the image falls nicely in the middle

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I think you've put the image in the Message Title box and nothing in the actual Message Content box which is why it appears to put a line break in as it's expecting additional text.

If I'm right in what I've said above, then remove all entries from the Message Title line, then paste the following code ONLY, into the Message Content box.

If this has confused the issue at all, then simply add just the code above as mentioned and delete anything else. I actually tested this with the code on my forum and got your logo centred in the Welcome Message box quite nicely.

Many thanks for the quick reply
Did you use HTML or not ??
Tried the code in the content area and it justified left with a line below.
Tried it html style, justified centre and it appears central but with line gap above, just like it is now on the site ???????

Mmm, that's odd. I simply entered the url of the image as per the code I've posted (if you use the Can i get rid of blank line after image on homepage message  tags, the system will auto-format the string to the same as the code anyway).
The image appeared central in the welcome box with no line space above or below; the box was just slightly higher than the image.
Can't tell, but do you use phpBB2 or 3, as this might be the reason for it displaying differently on my v2 board.
To be honest though, certainly in my browsers (IE & Firefox), the image now looks better than before. Have you a slightly larger image to post?

Looks like its a Phpbb3 thing, changed the site to bb2 and it worked fine (apart from everything falling apart !!!!)

Thanks for your help

Looks fine to me; the dialogue box is slightly more shallow than before and the image is justified left at the moment, but has your problem been resolved?

Just a thought though on appearance - does the flowers logo represent a sponsor etc? Would it be worth integrating the logo into the banner image, so it appears in the lower right corner, level with the Pride of West Yorkshire text, or does it specifically need to be seperate?
