The main "banner" type images used on Allwebco templates are setup in 3 different Ways. Some templates will tile or repeat the image, some will stretch the image to fit and some will be an exact fit to one side or the other and a blank area or some other element on one edge.
Chrome drop menu templates note:
If you have a Chrome drop menu template see Chrome sections below and you may also want to see the template image is repeating support page.
Find the banner code:
Perhaps you have a tiled image template and want to make this a stretched image style on the index.html (or other HTML page). First, find the following code (look for "PICTURE TABLE" in the HTML page):
Example #1A (From a chrome drop menu model)
<!-- PICTURE TABLE -->
<TABLE cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%"><tr><td background="picts/about.jpg" class="pictbackground">
<a href="index.html"><IMG SRC="picts/about.jpg" border="0" width="700" height="80"></a><br>
<!-- PICTURE TABLE -->
Note that in the above code the about.jpg is setup as a background and the spacer.gif is used to hold the correct amount of space open (in the chrome model the spacer is the about.jpg instead). There are different ways to make this not tile:
Example #1B (From a template with a slider or AdShow)
Edit this code in the CSS file and add the highlighted line of code to control the repeat:
The CSS class above may be named "pictureend" or "ban-table-home" or "ban-table" or "home-background" or some other similar name. You can search in the .css file for ".jpg" to find code that is using images.
Option #1 make the image wide:
If you have set a background image like above that means it can be any size you like and it will not affect the overall page size. Make your image 1500 pixels wide or wider and most viewers will not see the tiling. This is not recommended for templates that are not using background images and Chrome drop menu templates. See other options below and/or the template image is repeating support page for Chrome drop menu templates.
Option #2 color on one side:
You can have a sized image and a background color on one side or the other. Here is an example of that code with a black background (new code is in red):
Note: In some templates the image area may already include a background color. This will be a class in your template .css file and may be named something like .pictbackground.
Option #2 in Chrome drop menu templates:
From the code below in a Chrome drop menu, remove only the background="picts/about.jpg" code and adjust the width for your image size. This code is the "Background and image on page" style as shown above in the example links.
Edit the background color in the "common-style.css" by editing the ".pictbackground" class.
Option #3 stretching the image: You can recode this to stretch this image. First, remove this exact code: background="picts/about.jpg". Now, change this part picts/spacer.gif to this "picts/about.jpg". Finally, change the width="700" to width="100%" and you should have a stretched image instead of a tiled one. Here is an example of the new code:
Other Notes: The above examples show you how to change from a tiled style to another style. In general, if you have a stretched style and want a tiled image you will edit example #2 to look like example #1 above. If you have a sized image and want to use another style you would take example #3 and recode it to look like either example #1 or #2.
More Notes: Some templates such as OSnine or some "Webmaster" models have the header image in the header.js or menu_header.js and you will need to edit that file to change the image code type.
Menu Notes: In some templates if you change the image code you may need to move the menu. To move the menu you will edit either the menu.js or your .css file.
