Help with header height
Hello, I need help with a header issue. I have created the child pages necessary to change the height of the header, however when I go into wordpress to add the taller image it still says my image should be 960 x 198 and forces me to crop it. When I view my site, I see the new space for the image, so the code is correct. How do I get around this and use the taller header image. Thanks so much.
In addition to changing the css, you also need to alter a couple functions. Try inserting this into your child theme
You can change the values to whatever you like. In your case, change the
198to your new slider height.
Thanks for the info and prompt response but I already did that. I changed the 198 to 250. My issue is when I am in wordpress and go to add the graphic. When I am here: http://navigatewithpurpose.com/wp-admin/themes.php?page=custom-header – it tell me: You can upload a custom header image to be shown at the top of your site instead of the default one. On the next screen you will be able to crop the image.
Images of exactly 960 Ã— 198 pixels will be used as-is.
If you view the website – http://www.navigatewithpurpose.com – you will see the space I need is under the graphic that is up there now. WordPress will not allow me to put in the image without cropping it. Hope that makes sense.
Okay, we are going to do a workaround. I’m not really sure why this isn’t working for you.
This is the URL of your current header image:
So, let’s navigate to this folder using either FTP or your hosts control panel. What we need to do is overwrite the default image with our new one.
So, open up your FTP program or log on to your hosts cpanel.
Navigate to wp-content/uploads/2012/01/
Then, name your NEW image
Lastly, overwrite your old photo with your newer one.
This should bypass the graphene cropping option and display it as-is.AdminAdmin

Thanks, I needed that 🙂
Okay, so you view source? I see where a child theme is called in the
<head>. How do you know if there is a functions.php file in the child theme? Or did you just know from looking at the css that the dimension changes didn’t take?Admin
Nope, I use Web Developer Toolbar add-on for Firefox. It’s another one of those essential add-ons for web developers, aside from Firebug.
When I viewed it earlier, there was no stylesheet being loaded from the ‘graphene-child’ folder, or any other folder that may indicate a child theme. But it’s there now, so it should be activated already.
