How to change header to a specifc design
I have made changes to the column widths and have increased the width of the page.
As a result the 960*198 header does not fit in the space required.
I have amended the space to accommodate a 1025*90 header and have uploaded the file into the media section. I am at a loss as to what to do next. I assume it is adding some customized CSS but I am unsure about how to do this.
Did you add a filter to your child theme functions file to accomodate the new header size? Take a look at this post: https://forum.graphene-theme.com/graphene-support/header-image-size-change#post-345
I absolutely love the theme. It can surely turn into a commercial theme… I hope I can use it for free as long as possible. 🙂
I love the new upcoming feature that allows custom widths for the page and sidebars. I can’t wait for that to happen.
However, I need those tweaks right now and I kind of got stuck. So I bumped into this looking for a solution.
Here is what I did: modified the css to match my desired layout, this went well.
The custom width doesn’t match the banner size so the banner doesn’t take all the space in the header.
I tried the method explained by putting together more resources:
Installed “Executable PHP widget”, I enabled the graphene_setup action hook and inserted the following code in the designated widget area:
The “Custom Header” wizard still wants to crop my images and use the default 960*198 pixels. What am I doing wrong? Can you guys, give me a hand with this?

This function should not be put in a widget area.
Rather, this code should be placed in your child theme’s

K. Let me know if it works (or doesn’t work) for you.

@Dorian – Please don’t hijack someone’s thread. If you have a question to ask, feel free to start the discussion is a new thread.
@ Josh – It works, thanks for the help.
@Prassana – I felt that it would be better for users to read more about the same topic in one place. Having encountered the same problem, I thought that it made sense to share knowledge on the same subject on the same thread. It wasn’t a hijack attempt, sorry about that.
On another note after fixing the issue with the child theme, which is a great feature, minify plugin doesn’t work anymore for css. The new theme doesn’t get any of the css the inherited one and the child theme css. Any thoughts on that? I disabled minify for css only and that seems to work for now.
