In that same xg_masthead you need to remove the border property.
Then for the removal of the name, are you going to use a graphic?
If so you can add it MANAGE>APPEARANCE>ALL OPTIONS and then you will see NETWORK LOGO.
You can do this too: #xg_head display:none; but use the right brackets and such.
Do you use Firefox? If so do you use the Web Developer plugin? or Codeburner? There are some great tools that u can view the CSS and in MANAGE>APPEARANCE>ADVANCED OPTION you can change the CSS to everything of the site.
What is your site and I will be glad to help you in every way possible.
Hey Maxx, first off, I am a huge Vanilla Ice fan ;)
I use photoshop
The background of my site is just some gradients and some of my photoshop styles. Do you have photoshop? I can point you to some styles to get to add that are useful.
I am actually working on redesigning my site. I just did that quickly. I spent more time working on the GROUP avatar things than i did on the site graphics.
