Making my post title fluid?

  • # May 9, 2013 at 5:49 am

    This is the site I’m working on: http://dlit.co.za/

    I want to be able to make the post title fluid like on this site: http://clevva.net/contact/

    The CSS i’m targetting is:

    .block-type-content .entry-title {
    height: 140px;
    background-image: url(post_title_pic.png);
    background-repeat: no repeat;
    background-size:100%;
    }

    For some reason it won’t expand to the edges of the browser window like it does on http://clevva.net/contact/

    I’d appreciate any help at all.

    I’m using:

    Headway 3.4.11
    Wordpress 3.5

    Thank you.

    Are you trying to copy the design?

    # May 9, 2013 at 6:34 am

    Yup

    You have a wrapper on your page

    div.wrapper {
    width: 940px;
    }

    They use an ‘inner’ container to limit centered content.

    Kinda like this: http://codepen.io/Paulie-D/pen/oGKtA

    @Paulie_D Should we be helping those who try to copy from others?

    @chrisburton I see your point but if it’s just for practise…then again, that might not be the case here.

    @Pauly_D Seems like a business to me.

    # May 9, 2013 at 8:42 am

    It is indeed for a business. Im guessing then because of that I can’t request support?

    It’s unacceptable to copy others, therefore I won’t but if someone else wants to that’s up to them.

    Meh, doesn’t look like a complete rip. @CyberStorm, if somebody asks you if you’re trying to copy a website (ie, *steal*), you probably shouldn’t answer with a ‘yup’.

    Maybe they meant they were just trying to copy this particular feature? *crosses fingers*

    > if somebody asks you if you’re trying to copy a website (ie, steal), you probably shouldn’t answer with a ‘yup’.

    Ah, this made me laugh.

    Anyway, maybe not a direct copy and paste (colors, type, etc.) but it looks clear to me. Changing a few things doesn’t distort the fact.
