Littleus, you created a great banner for me, now I just dont know how to use it, modify or recreate in the future.......I'm looking but I'm not finding info. Also my pages seem to load slowly, what would you say is the optimal pic size to keep site running quickly. I know I had another stupid question but, seems to escape me at the moment, really wanted to ask these quest at once so you'd only have to laugh at me the one time.....LOL
Just remembered, when using comment boxes, can I delete a comment at a time, to free up space, or do I have to delete the widget then reinstall? I ask because my comments section was getting too long and could not find a way to delete others comments was only able to delete mine.....so I ended up deleting the entire widget and reinstalling. I went to the widget site and read that I could delete individual comments, but couldnt find where to do this on sitebuilder!

I see you use js kit also....you can delete comments....Did you claim the comment box through them so it shows you as admin?

Ahh....claim the comments box? Also now that I'm trying to re-insert the widget it pastes into my page but, it looks just like what is on the preview page with hundres and hundres of generic comments......what the heck am I doing wrong now?

Hi Rizan,

The style Tastelessly allows for an optimal banner image of 978 x 263 Pixels. To change the banner you simply click on the "Change Banner" sign in the builder. There appears to be another notice also "Edit Banner" which I can't seem to get working.

The "change banner" will allow you to choose another image and replace the existing. Your optimal file size for such banners would be approximately 100 Kb. The "home page heading" will be seen within the banner image on your home page as will every other page heading title appear on the respective page if you change each page heading. .

Images files tend to be the single most important element for your page loading speed. Smaller images you can look at 50kb file sizes. These file sizes allow the image to appear on the screen as looking quite sharp but don't take all the resources of the browser to load.

The "Edit Banner" finally loaded. This allows you to resize teh image. You have the option of keeping the relative proportions or to simply drag a dimension and ignoring proportions. It is best to experiment with this and to see what you like.

Littleus created a banner for me with 3 different images, I cant figure out how this was done, how I can reuse it. I've gone into piknik and cant seem to find how to create a banner. I am able to edit the pictures in the banner that hasnt been a problem for me. It's trying to accomplish what littleus did. 1 banner 3 pics.

Hi Rizan,

Do you have the image that Littleus created for you? I presume it's a single file of a composite image

All you have to do is to click the "Change Banner" notice on the page in the builder. It will direct you from there.

It will ask you to either select an image from your computer or from your File manager. If you haven't already uploaded it into the file manager select Your Computer and then the image name. It will do two things. It will upload it to your file manager and automatically replace your banner image.

The next thing to do is to "edit the Banner". This again is another directed instruction, Simply follow the steps. to optimise the image in your banner.

Peter, I did save to my computer then when I try to load it, it loads fine, I just cant get rid of the site name, so she has a site name in the banner and the old banner has a site name, 2 names over each other........wait, the properties page is where I must need to edit...I think!

OK. If Littleus has put her site name on the image then that's a bit of a problem. You would have to make a new image.

oh no Peter, my site name not hers. littleus created to show me/for me. But in the new banner it includes my site name in darker colored font instead of the white std font. But, I think maybe I need to clear the site name in the properties page and insert the banner.
Hope the banner shows properly.

OK Rizan,

I can see options for you.

With picnik crop out the words and leave with a simple white background or add another image there from your collection.

If you need assistance let me know?

Hi Rizan

Sorry that I was not on the computer to assist you with this whole thing. I feel bad that I caused such a headache with the banner thing.

But.. hooray for being to resolve your two issues! I can only imagine the great feeling of relief and accomplishment!
