Cannot Remove Uploaded Header Image

  • Danielpdx


    I previously uploaded a header image. I now want to upload a new header image I created.

    I removed the previous image in WP Dashboard. However, the header is still displaying on the site.

    I deactivated all the Plugins and the header is still displaying on the site even though I have no header selected in WP Dashboard.

    If you click on the link below you can see the header even though no header is selected. Please help!



    There is no header image on your site. I only see content of header widget.



    Are you sure? I cleared my chache and I can see the old header I had.

    Have you tried uploading the new header image and selecting that as the header? You don’t need to remove the previously-uploaded header image to use a new one.



    Yes, I have the new header uploaded and selected. However, the old header is still displaying on the website. Please help.

    Seems like you’re using the WP Super Cache plugin. Try clearing the plugin’s cache.



    I did clear the cache. I even deactivated all the plugins. The problem persists.

    You have a text widget in your header, which contains this image which overlays the theme’s header image:

    <img width="960" height="98" border="0" usemap="#Map" src="">

    Remove that image and you’ll see your new header image.



    I am so embarrassed. Thank you so much for pointing this out. You Rock! The new header is now showing.

    One more question. How do I apply the theme’s style to the Widgets? Thanks for your help.



    I apologize , when I answered the first time I didn’t explain that the thing you see is content of text widget inside your header widget area.

    For styling the widgets look at this post:
