No Longer Headless

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain Corp.

"Some persons hold," Charles Dickens once wrote, "that there is a wisdom of the head, and... there is a wisdom of the heart."

Many of you have noticed the recent issues regarding the ability (read: it wasn't working) to upload headers to your ActiveRain blog, and perhaps you've been feeling a bit like the meditating Buddha in this photo: utterly headless. The content of your blog-- the heart-- was there, but the header was not, and we know this leaves you feeling a bit incomplete. 

Our development team has been working diligently to stabilize the foundation of ActiveRain, but they've also been fixing a few other things for us as well. As of today, you should be able to upload headers and customize your ActiveRain blogs as usual. After all, although your heart is there, we want your head to be there as well so you can share your wisdom through both the head and the heart. Dickens would be so proud.

Thank you for being patient as you've run around headless these last few days. We're working hard to keep you in the loop, but please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have!

Thanks for the loop. I noticed something was wrong with my header. I'll try putting my head back on.

I'm sorry, but I find being headless rather hard to swallow.  LOL.

What a clever post. You can make any topic kind of fun with the correct photo and spin. Good post.

Even though Greg woke up on the wrong side of his cave today, I appreciate the communication like this. You sent me an email also which was appreciated.  I just don't like how it looks!  Thanks!

Thank you so much for solving this problem!  I had attempted to update my header several weeks ago so it's been "headless" for quite a while.  I'm happy to be back up and running today.

This is wonderful, both the blog and the fact that I was able to finally change my background pic. A small thing i know but it does make a difference. Thank you!

I was wondering why my background and header disappeared and now I know.  I had to recreate my header and still need to tweek it since I didn't get it sized right.  Thanks for letting me know about it.
