Great Tutorial. Thanks- NJ

For some reason all of the links on my navigation bar are directing to my home page instead of where I've set them to. Any idea why this would be happening?


What is your blog's address?

Brian Hines

Excellent, Andy. Wasn't aware of this great feature. Just added it. Easy to do. Thanks.

Mary Helen

Hi Andy, It is


Ah - I guessed right - what's happening is the box your banner is inside is 'over' the navigation bar. Here's how to fix it:

Go to Weblogs > (Your Blog) > Design > Custom CSS and paste in:

#banner-header a { height:166px; }

Save and then reload your blog.

That will 'trim' the banner's box from the bottom so it let's the navigation bar links become clickable.

Mary Helen

Aha. That did work, but it also removed my background and mushed up the banner. I recently revamped the appearance of my blog based on this post:

Is there a way to add the nav bar without losing my current look?

TAS  mania

would be great if the CSS example included inserting an image as background and an image as link. the other examples are easy to follow.

TAS  mania

got how to do the image on background by going to topic: Adding background to your blog (CSS) and inserting the code + url ..... now working on image link for nav bar...

TAS  mania

couldn't figure out how to image link the nav put in ticket. and wrote suggestion to typepad's knowledge base about giving an example of the code to stylize the link with a image.

Can't thank you enough for the tutorial. I had the same problem with the height of my banner so thanks for that info too. My question is can I edit the sequence of my titles. Or do I have to get it right the first time?

This is one tip that I did in five minutes and it's going to help send folks to my twitter page, my LinkedIn page and my company's portfolio. Thanks Typepad. You rock.


Rock out! Just what we like to hear!

Okay, Okay... Thanks Mr. Andy...

Love that name.

I think I got it. So, what you're saying is, "Make it work how you want and don't go running over to WP for no reason!"

Good point! I've already got $5k in a freakin WP blog that's killing me...

In Strength,


Sweet God that's a lot to pay for Wordpress when it is supposedly 'free'!
