Since the merge and the change in the logo, there is a splice on the banner photos. It's been on the last three. It only shows on the banner, not in the original banner photos. @Calif_Sue it happened again with the new banner.

I see it now! So @Dave will have to check into it. I suspect it has to do with the new logo.

I suspect what is happening here is the old logo had a solid background and the photo was shoved over. Now the logo has a transparent background and the banner image appears behind the logo. It no longer gets shoved to the right so it repeats to fill the extra space.

I've noticed it as well. Occasionally on my larger screen (which is what I mostly use) a banner will split, but now it does every time. Not as pleasing to the eye, but I assume this is lower on the 'fix' list.

Do Dave and/or Trish never sleep? They seem to be working non stop to make everything just right for all of us.
I , along with many others, think they are doing a great job in the transition. To have taken on such a huge and sometimes, thankless, job must be really all consuming. Bless their hearts, for how they love the gardening community. Hurray! Hurray!

Well, it's back @dave, must have to do with the size of the banner as it's doing a repeat on the right side.

Jay is right. The old method had the logo occupying the first 300 pixels, then the banner started. Now the banner starts all the way to the left.

Eventually I'm going to change this to that the banner goes back to starting 300 pixels over and that'll resolve the issue.

I hope you aren't going to do away with that transparent background. It looks so much better than the solid ATP logo. I'm probably in the minority but I love the logo and name the way it is now, with the exception of the repeating background.

I agree with you, Jay, but I think we are WAY in the minority. In fact, it might just be you and me. Smiling

I agree Thumbs up
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

4 of us. I love the new logo. It stands out and all the colorful banners enhance it, especially the last one of orange tulips.
