I've tried a whole bunch of things to make those lines disappear but nothings has worked. I'm also still not able to make my header height enough to show my whole header. But first things first. Any ideas about my first question?

Thanks for that lead. I tried finding the code he was talking about but couldn't. Once I find it though, all I have to do is change the color code? Can you give me more specific instructions on how to find the css?

It's in CSS Inserts.

Look in Atahualpa Theme Options (ATO)>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts

I don't see that code in the CSS inserts. Will it be the exact text?

ATO)>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts is not code it is the location for where the code will be. You should see the following which you can delete to get rid of the bars or just change the color.
HTML Code:
div#imagecontainer { 
border-top: solid 5px #333; 
border-bottom: solid 5px #333; 
}

Thanks for this info "lmilesw"- I've just joined the forum, specifically to look at this problem, and this CSS tip has solved my challenge with the theme. I didn't actually even consider looking in that section.

I'll try it out on other parts of Atahualpa too - thanks!

I see the code I mentioned for the borders on your site.. I have no idea why it isn't in your CSS Inserts. JD... Any ideas.

My guess (this is a guess) is that you have two different installs of WordPress maybe in the same database and the Wordpress/atahualpa you are making changes to, is not the one that is accessed when you visit the site.

You (or someone) needs to review where your DNS is pointing, what database you are using (found in wp-config.php) What is in that database.

Something seems to be messed up with the way things are installed and it will only be found by poking around.

Thanks JuggleDad. Can you say a bit about what the DNS is and where it is to be found so I can review it? This seems uber complicated to me but part of me thinks this might be the problem since I've had a bunch of issues setting this whole thing up in the first place with iPage.com. I'm working on another site as well, and the same issue is present.

The DNS (sorry I typed DSN from muscle memory - a mainframe term from many years and many keystrokes ago) is the domain name system.

Somewhere at your host your domain name get's pointed to a folder. Lets say the root of the host is 'root' and you have a home folder called 'jstein'. And let's say I have a site on the same system, so my home folder is 'juggledad'. If setup properly, your domain name jstein.com would be directed to root/jstein while juggledad.com would be directed to root/juggledad.

Now let's say I buy a second domain called jugglelupa.com. I need to point it somewhere other than root/juggledad, so maybe I create a folder inside 'juggledad' and call it 'mylupa'. If i set the DNS properly, someone using jugglelupa.com will go to the folder root/juggledad/mylupa.

This is a simplified version of the actual structures (there is generally a 'www' folder and others mixed in) to help get the idea across.

p.s. ready for the northeaster tonight/tomorrow?

Eek gad. I'm going to have to study all that! But thanks for all the effort!

Well on a sort-of unrelated note, are you serious? A northeaster? So soon? Man. Not sure I'm ready for that.
