    Apologies for not being Edugeek! :(

    Hi guys, this isn't edugeek joomla related but more general Joomla. Wasn't quite sure where else it would go.

    I've downloaded and installed a template and just trying to play about with how it looks before I start messing with the articles/menus etc.
    It looked messy with latest posts/popular at the top of the page so I took them out. I now have a whopping great gap between the top of the page and my logo (work in progress).
    Anyone have an idea what I need to change in order for the grey gap to disappear, is it a generic term in Joomla?

    Educational Psychology Services (UK) Ltd
    (I had nothing to do with the site name by the way!)

    is the URL to the site

    (Even if the grey top bit was moved below the header would be fine if it would effect the layout. Just not really sure what I'm looking for to do this, i'm learning though!)

    Thanks in advance any help at all is appreciated.

    Best help I can give you is find out what id/class the gray box has,

    Then search the css for that id/class, from there you can change it's color/positioning/make it hidden (the last one might play with your template so be careful)

    If you can't find its ID or Class, then find out the hex value of that color is (grey is usually #666666 I think) by screenshotting and put it into fireworks or something, then do a search for that hex value in css.

    I looked at it last night and wondered if the grey are was an image. Today I get the same redirection error.

    Welcome to Educational Psychology Services (UK) Ltd << Sorry redirects screwed up again :-(

    UK2 seem to have a hard time doing redirects and it's getting on my nerves. As well as the grey area on the site does anyone have any clue about redirecting?
    Trying to get the Index of / to automatically point to Welcome to Educational Psychology Services (UK) Ltd but it just doesn't seem to want to do it using the cpanel.
    Had problems with my own site too (UK2 hosted). It's a real pain in the bum!

    Thanks again for any replies

    I'm guessing its one of these classes

    HTML Code:
    <div class="user">
    	<div class="user1"></div>
    	<div class="user2"></div>
    	<div class="newsflash" style="width:930px;"></div>
    </div>
    More than likely the newsflash class, so go into the main css of the site and put this at the top

    Code:
    div.user div.newsflash
    {
           background: #000000;
           background-image: none;
    }
    This should turn the gray box black, if it doesn't change *newsflash* to one of the other classes...

    Once you have narrowed it down to which class it is your options include.....
    • Changing the color using css "background: #******;"
    • Changing the size using css "height: *px; width: *px;"
    • Changing the visability using css "visability: hidden;"
    • Deleting it from the index.php & template.xml


    P.S If you can't narrow it down, it may be that a background image is set (it looks a bit fancy for just a standard background). So open up the main css and do a find on "newsflash" and the rest should be history.

    P.S.S If you choose to delete it from index.php there may be things inside the div, Make sure you DELETE them too.

    P.S.S.S Guy below me just repeats what I say ^_^

    Try removing the following from your index.php:
    Code:
    	<div class="user">
    	<div class="user1"></div>
    	<div class="user2"></div>
    	<div class="newsflash"
    				style="width:930px;"
    			></div>
    	</div>
    Regards,
    Chris.

    It looks as though it is an image, the user/newsflash areas are only at the very tops of the grey area, now to find out what it is called.
    Thanks for your help

    But it has to be marked in the CSS somewhere as there is no <img> tags above your logo try a search for "bac_user" in your css and change that to "visability: hidden;" if you find it.

    P.S Just so you know the image thats creating the 'gray box' is called "bac_user.png"

    Code:
    </div>
    	<div class="user">
    	<div class="user1"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="user1" style="rounded"/></div>
    	<div class="user2"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="user2" style="rounded"/></div>
    	<div class="newsflash"
    		<?php if($this->countModules('user1 and user2')) : ?>
    		style="width:520px;"
    		<?php else: ?>
    		style="width:930px;"
    		<?php endif; ?>
    	><jdoc:include type="modules" name="top" style="rounded"/></div>
    	</div>
    If I remove that code I no longer have the grey box but the background gray has also removed, so it's something along those lines, I've tried taking out bits of the code but to no avail
    I believe it uses the image top_mod.png << Although having removed both bot_mod.png AND top_mod.png it still displays.

    Sorry for being a pain :-(

    If you remove that, your leaving a div open (note the </div> at the top). Can you attach your css code to a post (or pm me with a download here) and I will take a better look.

    My first post was correct , appart from it being the Newsflash class(I downloaded your css anyway :P),

    From your current.css
    Code:
    div.user{
    	width:930px;
    	height:0px;
    	background-image:url(../images/bac_user.png);
    	background-repeat:repeat-x;
    	background-position:top left;
    	padding-left:10px;
    	float:left;
    }
    I told you
