so i want my header to fill up from left to right, i cant seem to get that effect. here is an example of what i have right now http://arturoluna.com/test/site/ and here is an example of the look of the header that I’am trying to achieve, http://www.vanillaforums.com/. I also want to get a logo in the header and not sure the right way to do so.
You have put your header div within the container div which is only 1024px wide, so obviously your header will only stretch as wide as it’s containing div.
To make your header stretch right across the page, simply place it above and outside the container div.
