    Hey. Is there a way to drop a banner between the menu bar and the header?

    The blog I need help with is notnewyork.net.

    Hi – I’m afraid there’s no way to do that, no.

    Really??? I’m actually curious how that can be the case, as it seems like a rather simple design tweak. My old site (www.thebabarazzi.com), which used the Imbalance 2 theme, wasn’t even designed with a header and menu at the time I bought it, and I was able to put both in with a bit of CSS.

    Surely there’s a way!

    Also, the code I dropped in to alter the Babarazzi site was actually html placed in a text widget in the header region.

    Hi – the only widgets available to Bromley are in the sidebar and the footer. There’s no widget space below the header.

    Sorry :(

    That’s ok. I got some outside CSS help to take care of it. It is possible, though.

    Glad you worked it out. So are you referring to the header image (with the ‘not new york’ text)?

    I’m curious to see what you are referring to – I would like to understand the solution myself.

    Hey, binarymoon. Yeah, the “header” I was referring to is banner with the logo/Not New York text in it. I got some CSS to drop it and make you/place an events update banner above it. The looks like this:

    .main {
    background: url(“URL_OF_IMAGE”) no-repeat scroll center top / contain rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
    padding-top: 200px;
    }

    I haven’t made it live yet with this new code, so you won’t see what it looks like on my site, but should give you an idea if you plop it into any other Bromley site with a header image already in place. It basically just adds some space between the header “Not New York” image and the menu, and gives you the option to place another image in the space.

    What I really need to do to make this all worth while is find a way to make the soon-to-be-placed “events banner” above the header logo image hyperlinked/clickable. Any ideas on how to do that???

    Geeze! Sorry about the awful grammar above. I have no idea what happened there and can’t seem to edit the post. Whoops.

    Thanks for the css – that makes sense – unfortunately it’s not possible to make the banner clickable. This is what I was referring to in my original reply – perhaps I should have made the reasons clearer.

    To be able to add something clickable/ interactive you would need to be able to edit the page html. CSS is purely for visual things. The reason wordpress.com does not allow html editing is that doing so could open up security issues that they wouldn’t be able to control.
