How's this?

Bushwack is going to get his pick and start prying all the bad coding that somehow ended up in the template when he gets time.

So I'm putting it how it would look once that brown cr@p is gone.
I do like the white on blue text, so that'll stay.
Anything else?


E-gawd, sorry about that color.
I ajusted it on my laptop and only now got on the main computer.

Hope this is better.


  1. Good GAWD That's horrible LMAO... Purple is NOT your color brother...But I got to say the duel sidebar is a nice touch. I'll square her away when I get home, I can't have you showing these colors to the world it may give you a bad rep, and them a headache..

  2. I'd keep the body text, at least, as dark letters on a light background.

  3. Here is the style rule you want to change (it is at line two of your main.css).header

    .header {
    color: white;
    font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size: 9pt;
    font-weight: bold;

    Add to that

    background-color: (the color you want);

    Here's a screen shot where I turned it yellow: screenshot

  4. The above would fix your original problem with the header turning brown.

  5. Ambis- I can't find that exact line of code, so I'll let Bushwack get it when he can.

    I appreciate you trying to help.
    Maybe I'm looking at the right code wrong, or you can see something blogger's hiding in their HTML edit section.

  6. Yea, I don't see how you can get to main.css. In your code there is this section:

    /* Header
    ----------------------------------------------- */
    .header-outer {
    background: #2aaadd none repeat-x scroll 0 -400px;
    _background-image: none;
    .Header h1 {
    font: normal normal 60px Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif;
    color: #3399bb;
    text-shadow: -1px -1px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, .2);
    .Header h1 a {
    color: #3399bb;
    .Header .description {
    font-size: 140%;
    color: #3d00bb;
    .header-inner .Header .titlewrapper {
    padding: 22px 30px;
    .header-inner .Header .descriptionwrapper {
    padding: 0 30px;

    Try adding

    .header {
    background-color: yellow;

    If that turns the background of the header banner yellow you'll know you can override the brown by setting the correct color there.

  7. Nope, it was yellow for a split second (just like the blue) then the brown took over.
