    I can’t seem to reproduce the link header image to front page feature bug on my test install…everything seems to work fine on my end.

    Make sure that you use the updated header.php file included with the beta version, and not replace it with a custom one. The codes that are added to that file is required for the function to work.

    Another update: I’ve added nonce and user-capability check to secure the theme’s options page. Also, the slider now uses category ID instead of category name/slug to pull the posts to be shown in the slider, to avoid conflicts between name and slugs.

    Both of these updates will be made available in Graphene 1.1 Beta 2, which I plan to release a few days from now, depending on my workload and the number of bug reports for beta 1.



    Sounds good, and yes the reason the header image isn’t working is probably because i overwrote the header file with my old header.php i will upload beta version now to test! Just uploaded the beta header and looks like the link works but image is broken … somethings not working right 🙂 please take a look if you can http://www.ehealthfitness.com.au i will also do further testing tonight and update here! THanks



    Looks like its because of the new css:

    #header_img_link {

    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;







    this in IE9 causes a BLACK #000 image to be displayed over the original header, however in Firefox its a 10% BLACK image which is displayed over the original header image, so its not working correctly.

    I know i can fix this by implementing additional CSS code for #header_img_link but i think it wold be good if it got the height/width from the functions file dynamically if possible? and had no background colour?

    Let me know if this can be fixed or i should just use a CSS workaround to modif the original #header_img_link.

    Thank you!

    Actually, the black background and the opacity properties aren’t supposed to be there. They were there so that I could accurately position the link to cover the entire header. I must have forgotten to remove it 😀

    And yes, I have also added a feature so that the size of the link block is retrieved dynamically through the functions.php if the header image height or width is different than the default values (900 x 198 pixels).




    I tried the beta to help out and as a thank you for making this theme freely available and for answering our 1001 questions. The CC option works great. I ran into the opacity problem on the header when I turned on the image and I just downloaded the beta today, after the above post says it was fixed.

    Hi Leah,

    Firstly, thanks for taking the time and effort to try out the beta version!

    And secondly, the opacity problem has indeed been fixed, but I did not upload the updated version yet, so the beta version you downloaded is the unfixed one.

    I will upload the beta 2 in a day or two, and that version will include all the fixes for beta 1.



    Great! One last question, how do i add my addthis buttons to the header without modifying the main header.php? I want to keep them in the rss div…

    Please assist with the code if possible 🙂

    Thanks and I appreciate your work! Looking forward to the next release 🙂

    You can use the graphene_feed_icon action hook to hook a function that will display the additional buttons right next to the RSS button.



    Thanks for your reply, i dont actually know how to implement an action hook … could you assist me with that?? I just need the following code after the RSS icon





    Add to Favourits


    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#username=xa-4ca8177134133be7″></script&gt;

    Or is it as simple as just making a ‘graphene_feed_icon’ file and putting that code into it?

    Thank you!
