[resolved] Another WordPress Header Issue (awkward) (5 posts)

    Right, I'll do my best to explain this thoroughly enough.

    I'm using the Elegant Grunge theme and I have opted for the extra sidebar.

    e.g. like so: http://thetruejoe90.com/home

    I've uploaded a transparent PNG file which you can see to the left of the header but I want to change the background of the header to this 1382px x 216px.

    Looking through the style.css I have found (so i believe) the right section to make the alteration being here where it states double-right-sidebar:

    #header-wrap {
    	background: url(images/header-repeat.jpg) repeat-x center top;
    }
    
    #header {
    	height: 216px;
    	background: url(images/header.jpg) no-repeat center;
    }
    
    .no-sidebar div #header {
    	background-image: url(images/header-no-sidebar.jpg);
    }
    
    .double-right-sidebar div #header {
    	background-image: url(images/header-double-sidebar.jpg);
    }
    #header div {
    	width: 800px;
    	margin: 0 auto;
    }
    
    .double-right-sidebar #header div {
    	width: 947px;
    }

    After uploading the file I still cannot get the desired JPG to alter the header.

    Quite simply, I can't see the wood for the trees! Assistance would be highly appreciated as i have spent nearly 5 hours trying to make this right but to no avail.

    in your version, there was a 'url' missing

    .double-right-sidebar div #header {
    	background-image: url(http://thetruejoe90.com/home/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/header-double-sidebar3.jpg);
    }

    Thank you Alchymyth ;) I can't believe I missed that one, I'll sleep better tonight (and that's genuine too)
