Hi,

I understand that and have done that, I' don't like that my scrolling tweets center section is almost as big as my back ground. In other words I wish I could make my existing logo appear on the left side of the scrolling tweets and not  be covered up by it. Then I would cahnge from tile to a normal 1 logo back ground.

Is it possible to change the size of the center scrolling tweets, to smaller so it does take up the whole
back ground?  

If you goto www.workingbelt.com you can see what I mean, and if you go here you can see more
backgrounds of what I would like to be like in there examples notice how the center tweets doesn't
fill up entire background and there room left for a nice looking picture/logo. Look at the example of hugh briss and on one hes visible and on the other back ground is to big.

It's just a matter of designing the graphic to be where to want it... you don't have any other controls.

Also need to remember that there are two different Twitter centre types at the moment as users move from the old one to the new.... the new one is larger

You can switch between the old "single panel" and the newer "double panel" until they decide the preview is over.

But any background you create has to work with BOTH as it's the viewer who chooses which panel display they are using.
