Actual Banner Size?

edited November 2013 in General Archive
I read in a post the banner size now is 1000x220. Is that correct because when I made banner those dimensions it didn't fit properly. Can anyone let me know the actual size or how to make it so my banner fits?

    Not sure on what the actual dimensions should be exactly, but if you're an Ascendant member, you can throw the following in your campaign CSS to make your banner auto-size to the space:

    .campaign-banner-image{ background-size: 100%; background-repeat: no-repeat; }

    The banner shrinks to fit your screen; 1000x220 is the correct size if your screen is suitably big (it doesn't get larger than that unless you alter the default campaign width).

    From Micah "here": : "With the new plan, we will be able to keep the aspect ratio locked at 5:1 as things resize down, so your banner will always look the same and nothing will be cropped or distorted at any size.

    The downside is that this will change the existing banner sizes a little (21px of height), which could impact anyone who has updated their banner already to fit the new sizing. I apologize for yet another upheaval, but this is the last change to the banners in order to get them to fit right.

    The new size guidelines are 994×199px, assuming you’re using the standard 1024px max width. Otherwise, it is a ratio of 5:1 width-to-height, with the width equal to (max-width – 30px).

    We will be launching the new banner sizing on Thursday morning as well."

    The banners are very easy to change.

    Yup. And for what it's worth, the CSS I posted above will make your site agnostic to the ratio of your banner, so you can really do whatever you'd like with it. I know I prefer a banner that's significantly wider relative to its height, just from a use-of-space standpoint.

    Aright, so how the heck do I fix this?

    I tried the CSS line ChainsawXIV posted above, and it didn't change anything.

    What do you want to fix? It looks great. Did you fix it already?

    This is annoying, Why is that universal size code not just part of OP??
