sort of, but this is not the right way to create a banner. You should have a separate logo, and the phone numbers should be html:

this will create a background image in your header:
#header-top-container{
background-image: url(http://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/2014/01_w03/828394/banner.png);
background-position: center -20px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-color: #fff;
}

anywhere inside your stylesheet. make sure you change the reference to your image (the url property) from experts-exchange.

Ok, i have tried that, put then put a couple of lines into the header.php and its showing at the very top if you look at it, but would love to get it just sitting on top of the nav bar?

I'm not sure what you mean. it would be helpful if you attached a graphic of the desired result.

you need to do a couple of things to clean this up.

1. remove all the html inside the div #header-top-container, and then give it a height:
#header-top-container {
background-image: url(http://tryansolicitors.com/ban3.png);
background-position: center 0;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-color: #fff;
height: 80px;
}

Open in new window


2. remove the 'top' property from:
#navigation-wide-dark {
position: relative;
/* top: 18px; */
background: url(images/navigation-wide-dark-shadow.png) top left repeat-x;
height: 54px;
}

Open in new window


3. this image has a white line which should be removed:
http://www.thedancingsoul.ie/wp-content/themes/Primero/images/navigation-wide-dark-shadow.png

4. remove the 'top' property from:
#navigation-wide-dark nav {
/* top: 3px; */
position: relative;
background-color: #7a7a7a;
height: 44px;
background-image: url(images/navigation-wide.png);
background-position: bottom left;
background-repeat: repeat-x;
}

Open in new window

start with those changes, and post what you get. we'll take it from there

you can remove this entire div and eveything in it:
<div id="header-logo-container">

Open in new window


this image has a white line in it, and should be edited:
images/navigation-wide-dark-shadow.png

OR,
just remove everything from the CSS:
#navigation-wide-dark {
/* position: relative; */
/* background: url(images/navigation-wide-dark-shadow.png) top left repeat-x; */
/* height: 0px; */
}

Open in new window


and add this - you may need to tweak to your liking:
#navigation-wide-dark nav{
box-shadow: 2px 2px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
}

Open in new window
