Oops..... I think for those who are using Win XP with IE 7 and having their active content security ON see that blue box around the logo.

Do you guys have active content security off?

I am not talking about the shade beneath the text...I am talking about a big box around the whole text

i think you dont see those boxes otherwise you understand what i m saying... But i dont know why its not visible for you...
Actually vodabuilder makes a .png picture of any logo and by default if you see the background of that .png logo is sky blue..So if the bg of your webpage is white then it will mess with that color....
For me the logos and headings i made with logo maker in voda builder are creating problem as these have blue boxes around them which are basically their bg color.....
why dont u see them?

I see the background behind your text images ..

check into your control panel, public_html folder and see if you can see
pngfix.*** .. not sure if this would be the reason, but you should see this file inside your public_html directory .. if not, you might contact support for this ..

well in this case then it is worth a ticket to support and ask them about this file for you, perhaps this may be the issue as I believe everyone should have this in their public_html directory ..

support@vodahost.com

Convivial, could you please come back to this post and let us know what support do for you in this case if indeed this file is required. I have seen this file in most of my accounts under public_html as Lady says, however, it is NOT in every one I have, so I for one would be interested to know if indeed it is a required file for this fix.

Well, if you save to jpg you will have a white background and in your case that is fine ....

but what you could do is right click on your images and save as .png as well and then reinsert them as images on your page .. this worked for me ..

there is only one that you have a transparent image over that you won't be able to copy, you will need to remove that first .. then copy from your webpage directly and reinsert ..

but also check with support about your fix ...

You are probably correct about XP & IE7 security. I just saw the blue background with my laptop, (XP & IE7 with allow active content-off) My other computer (XP & IE7 with allow active content-ON).

If an upload does not work, then submit a support ticket and they will install it for you.

I have tried by converting .png file into .jpg and it worked...
I think its ok even if it works this way...

But i m not sure if .png extension is superior to .jpg or loads faster than it? But i can see .jpg size is less than .png which is good

and jpg does load quicker and you wont ever see a flash with it as you can with png .. so good choice ..

I suggest you republish an index page though

... a page simply called index
