    Hi,

    Sorry is this question has already been asked, I do not know.

    I just read the topic about child theme, and I don’t know if I can make my changes in a child theme. Let me explain:

    I chose Graphene because there is an interphase to change all the color etc…

    So I did almost all my changes with the menu Apparence > Graphenes options

    Now I would like create a child theme because I need to change few thinks in the CSS code and also the footer.php.

    But, how to make my new parameters from the interface menu in my child theme, please ?

    Is it possible to “fix” these changements ?in the child theme to save my actual version ?

    I don’t know if my question is understandable., sorry 🙁

    Thank you !

    Hy,

    If you did all changes through Graphene Options, and you didn’t change or add something from main theme files, then is perfectly safe to install a child-theme. All the things that you set up in Graphene options will stay.

    Where is that banner need to be displayed. You can always use wp media upload because the images are not resized, wordpress save new files for thumbnail (150×150), medium (300×300) etc.

    There is no link.

    Hi Luko !

    Thank you for your reply. I want to put the banner in the header. This is the head of my store.

    I want to remove the automatic header call from the “mom graphene them” of my child theme and replace it by my banner in my child them.

    Where is the line of css I need to change it, please?

    Thank you

    “mom graphene them” lol, new heard of this before 🙂

    OK. You can disable “automatic header” in Graphene Options/Display/Header Display Options/ by checking the “Disable Featured Image replacing header image”.

    After that go to Apperance/Header and add custom header.

    I’m hopping that this is what you’re looking for.

    No. I ever used this method but It’s not what I looking for. This method resizes autmatically the picture even when it has the right size. This action degrades automatically quality of the picture.

    It’s for this reason I looking for a method to put my banner url in the CSS.

    Thank you.

    Luko is giving you the correct advice. This might be easier to diagnose if we had a link to the site.

    Have you tried disabling all your plugins and then uploading a header image to see if the problem goes away?

    Hi guys !

    I solve my problem of banner alone in the css (lign 515) I modified and add the url of my image :

    #header {
    background: url(http://xxxxxxxxx.jpg) no-repeat 0% 0%;
    border-top: 1px solid #000;
    height: 198px;
    width: 100%;
    position: relative;
    overflow: hidden;
    }

    🙂

    Right.

    This isn’t the correct way of doing it, but OK. Just remember this when you upgrade main theme :).

    When you’re adding a header image through Appearance/Header section wordpress isn’t degrading image quality. It’s important to upload the image previously cropped to header size.
