okay, i figured that, but where within this code does it go? (as you can see this css is not easy for me)

.leaguehistorypageheader {
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-image: url(http://.....jpg);
height: 150px;
width: 100%;
}

Also, the page titles in my History page are not showing up very well. i'm going to try increasing what I think is the pixel size for that, but if I have problems, I'll be back.
Thanks

complete pain in the ass. Every time I twiddle with the code the whole thing doesn't work and it takes a half hour for me to get it back to where I started. If anyone can get the banner centered and the page titles to look right and be readable, let me know, cause i friggin give up. It only took me 12 hours to get it to look the way it is now!

tarznatz,

I'm sorry that you're getting frustrated here. I think one important thing to realize is that CSS is pretty complex and the ability for MFL History to use custom CSS is intended for those customers who are proficient in using it. I wish that I had the time to help you more fully on this, but as this isn't a CSS support site, the best I can do is point you to some resources that may help you learn more:

http://www.cssbasics.com/
http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_intro.asp

Both of these sites will give you some introduction and details into CSS coding, if you're interested.

In addition, in your case, where it looks like you are modifying CSS code that was developed by someone else, your best bet is to get in touch with that individual for help, since they will be much more intimately familar with it.

Also any CSS book by Eric Meyer is a good reference.  Should be able to pick one up for under $20.

And always save a backup copy of your good CSS file on your hard drive so that you can upload it again to start over.

doesn't seem to matter - today the whole thing is messed up again, even though I did nothing to it. it was working fine this morning, but now nothing.
I'm lost. This just shouldn't happen.

Well, it appears that MFLaddons website has been hacked.  Which could be why stuff you have linked to their website isn't coming out right.
