Site name, & n b s p ; and email notification subject field.

    On my website (well, it’s not mine, I am just helping setting it up), http://poetryroundup.us/whup/, I have a graphic, and I want the site title to straddle it; the only way that I could make that work is with a bunch of  ‘s in the title. However, when I get an email notification from a topic, I get this in the subject field:

    [Dr. Whup-Ass Bitch-Ass                                 Poetry Round-Up]

    Is there a way to keep the visual look that I am after, and avoid the ungainly subject field?

    Thanks!

    If you must have absolute, total control over the placement of your site title and description, then you really should use an image editing program such as Photoshop (costly, but nice) or GIMP (free, with learning curve) to add the text directly to the header image itself.

    You can control the site title and description placement to a large extent with CSS, but then you always have an issue with browser compatibility and potential changes to the CSS in future theme updates. Adding the text directly to the image avoids all of those issues.

    Thanks, that was my next plan, but I was hoping to avoid it.

    I know, I know…I’ve never been quite happy with my titles and descriptions either. I have been putting this off a long time myself.

    Can’t I use the site title options somehow? What do they do?

    They control font, size, and style (IIRC), but they don’t control actual placement. That has to be achieved with CSS, which inevitably results in “that doesn’t look right in IE6” comments.

    I ended up using the Gimp to edit the image. I guess I can mark this resolved. Thanks!

    Sorry that this is off-topic, but suddenly I can’t start a new topic! What is going on???

    Thanks!

    Seems to have been some anti-spam software that objected my linking to the site that I am managing in two consecutive posts.

    Sorry.
