I should be able to change the css page to make my page wider shouldn't I?  Like I want it make it 1000 px wide. Then I can change the banner image width and just replace the banner to the new width..?.
Code:
#page {
   background-color: white;
   margin: 20px auto;
   padding: 0;
   width: 760px;
   border: 1px solid #959596;
   }

#header {
   background-color: #73a0c5;
   margin: 0 0 0 1px;
   padding: 0;
   height: 200px;
   width: 758px;

Sure you should be able to do that.  Did you have a problem when changing the settings in your css file???

No, I was able to make changes but I need to play with it some more. It went out of what with center alignment when I expanded the page width. I will try to widen the images and see what that does.

I decided to go with a new template. I ran into a snag, howe do I change the color of text for my top banner? I can't find anywhere. I tried adding color code to the heading text line in the Stylesheet (style.css) page but that didn't do anything.
Code:
h1 {font-size:3em;line-height:1;margin-bottom:0.5em;#ffffff}

and I tried adding this code in a few places:
Code:
.custom h1 {
color:#FFFFFF;
}

and it didn't do anything either.

You have to look to see what class is being used.  What text are you trying to adjust???

That first example is wrong where you only included the hexcode but not what it was being assigned to.  This might make more sense:

Code:
h1 {font-size:3em;line-height:1;margin-bottom:0.5em;color:#ffffff}

OK i'll try that.

You can check it out if you want. This template is pretty cool, it has an editor to edit the pages right inside the admin.

I looked at the source in my browser and it says that you are using H2, not H1 for the main title.  Is that what you are attempting to change???

Code:
<h2>Fishead Tackle Blog</h2>

Note:  FFFFFF is white, so it won't work well for text displayed on a white background...

Its a blue background. I did try to change h1. I think the very top banner text is not in my template files, it is in the base blog files, like the text itself is also in the base blog area (wp-admin). That's why I can't change it in the template css.

The secondary text in that top banner is gray and that is what's not working, it doesn't show up over the blue banner. So I was trying to change the title and secondary text in that very top banner. The gray text in the secondary is the same size as the blog main text so I may not be able to change it without changing the blogs main text color. Thats why I was hoping to edit the banner itself without changing anything else. I think I can do that but not in the template because I don't think its in there anyway.

Its no big deal. I would remove that secondary text line but it says its a tag line and I may need it for google.

Wait, that text is orange so it has to be part of the template. Here is the css
