I think you have an unclosed DIV tag in your bio customization or perhaps in your header. Since I can't see the actual code you put in your BIO or header area (only how Smugmug combines it with everything else into your page), it's a little hard for me to tell exactly what the error is, but I think if you look in your bio and/or header area and make absolutely sure that for every <div> tag there is a corresponding </div> tag, I think you will find and fix the problem.

This link in your banner CSS does not work, if it has a key you need to
add it. Also make sure external links are on in its gallery.

You need to add the filter for IE to work with png's.
Generic code example.
Code:
#my_banner {
   width: 750px;
   height: 100px;
   margin: 0 auto;
   background: url(/photos/xxxxxxxx_xxxxx-O.png) no-repeat;
  _background: none;
  _filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader (enabled=true,
   sizingmethod=image, src='/photos/xxxxxxxx_xxxxx-O.png');
}
When I remove your splash photo the show runs. Make sure external links
are on in its gallery.

splash: '/photos/254770353_nnhdL-L.jpg',

My banner's gone and page changed
Since I shut my computer down last night it seems my banner has disappeared. I just want the site back that I had last night! I was finally making progress towards something I like and now it's changed.

I tried changing themes around as I think it was the last thing I may have done to a few galleries yesterday noticing it blocked my banner out on some pages? Could that be the problem?

thanks in advance.

Must be using IE, shows in Firefox. Add a space between ) and no-repeat.

margin: 0 auto;

still no banner
Thank you for the feedback but, it doesn't seem to be solving the problem. My banner actually came back yesterday after writing for help (Murphy's Law) but then again this morning seems to be off somewhere again. All I know is I don't see it on any of my pages....so weird. Any other suggestions?

http://juliannewarll.smugmug.com/pho...13_P5uEG-O.gif is not accessible. Either you don't have originals enabled for that gallery or you don't have external links enabled for it. It will sometimes work for you because it can sometimes be in your browser cache. It will never work for us.

Both external links and originals are in this part of the gallery customization screen. Make sure external links are set to Yes and Largest Size is set to Original.

Have you hidden it? Is the gallery password protected? Post a link to the gallery and I'll see if I can see it in the gallery. The things that can block if from appearing are:
  • password protected gallery
  • external links off
  • size limited
  • image hidden in the gallery
It does not appear to be a size blocking issue because I can't see any size.
