P2 THEME: WHITESTRIP RUINS HEADER PIC (Ditto “GREY BAR” in MOBILE)
See the above header area of the P2 Theme in Full Site view, & that big white strip that sits on top of any header pic &/or background pic you upload (& in Mobile version it is a big dark grey bar right across your header pic, covering most of the pic!)
Even if you TURN ***OFF*** “Blog Title in Header” option in Header/Settings, the big giant WHITE STRIP (GREY/Mobile) REMAINS!
AND… Even if you REMOVE all text from Title & Tagline (in Settings/General), the big WHITE STRIP/Full Site & big GREY BAR/Mobile Version REMAINS!
This has got to be the biggest blooper of them all & ruins an otherwise decent theme >> P2 is the ONLY “live streaming updates/activity” THEME that WP.com offers, so there are no other choices!
Blog Titles should NEVER be placed ON TOP OF a header pic (unless you have your own brand/logo). And ESPECIALLY in Mobile version should the header pic not be over-ridden by the blog title/tagline since the pic is small enough as it is in mobile!
Always put the Blog Title & Tagline ABOVE or BELOW header pic area, not IN the pic area! &/or an OPTION to do so.
It seems programmers do not “think things through” when designing so many of these themes.
If anyone knows a widget code that will REMOVE the white strip (for WP.COM FREEBIE SITES w/NO CSS UPGRADE), please do advise!
