  1. i want to move the navigation on http://www.hoshimo.com/blog/ to be the same as http://www.hoshimo.com.
    i know it has something to do with 'access', but i cant seem to wrap my mind around this one. im guessing its a simple solution, but i've only started tinkering with php and css about a week ag. id love the help! thanks.

  2. this is what my functions.php file looks like right now...

    <?php
    function unhook_thematic_functions() {
    remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_access',9);
    }
    add_action('init','unhook_thematic_functions');

    // Create a custom header
    function search_access() { ?>

    <div id="headerx">

      <li id="home">
      <li id="about">
      <li id="ninedesigns">
      <li id="resume">
      <li id="services">

    </div>

    <?php }
    add_action('thematic_header','search_access',9);

    ?>

  3. what i would really like is if it could just float right WITHIN the header section just like www.hoshimo.com... but for some reason when i try to do that, it just disappears..

  4. Hi hoshimo

    For one week into css and php, I think you're getting the hang of it. Try lowering the width of #branding

    #branding {width: 360px;}

  5. thanks for the suggestion and i appreciate the kind words. sleepless nights figuring out this confusing stuff can be frustrating sometimes... i tried what you suggested and... it seems like nothing happened.

  6. Sorry- I either typo'd that one or I did the math wrong try:

    #branding {width: 351px;}

  7. i think that did it! thanks gene!
    one last question. i used the #blog-description area for that line and tab graphic. right now its still a little off compared to www.hoshimo.com. is there a way i can nudge it over? i played with padding and margin stuff, but it always comes out weird. is it because it's within #branding? thanks for all of your help so far. :)

  8. Try this:

    #blog-description {
    background:transparent url(http://hoshimo.com/imgs/dots2.gif) no-repeat right bottom;
    height:31px;
    width:976px;
    }

    If you haven't already, download and install the firebug plugin for firefox it helps with debugging css.

    There seems to be a width diff between the site proper and the blog. You should be able to fix that.

    Also you're diluting the SEO of your blog description by reducing it to the word "blog". Google puts a lot of search mojo on the H1 of the page. I realize it's unimportant to you because of your text indent but you're missing an opportunity for search traffic there.
