Changing height of header for larger logo (6 posts)

    I have a logo that is taller than my header template provides (I'm using Brightpage 1.5 theme). I don't know code but tried going into the editor section and pasting in margin-top:50px. This made the header space taller, but the place where I am to upload a header did not change, therefore it simply took a narrower slice of my logo and repeated it on top of each other.

    Is there a way I can fix this, or do I have to look for another theme? If I must move onto a new theme, how do I find themes that have adjustable header heights?

    This is my first attempt with wordpress, so please be specific. Thanks in advance for any advice.

  2. Can you please provide a link to your site? Maybe there's an area in the stylesheet where we can adjust the height of the header.

  4. First, if you're going to edit you're theme, I strongly suggest creating a Child Theme: that way, you can make changes to only the parts of your theme you want to change, and you won't lose all your changes the next time the parent theme is updated.

    As for your header, themes that allow custom images in the header define the height and width in the functions.php file. Look in there for the line:

    define('HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT', 128);

    You can change the number to whatever you need it to be.

    Amy, thanks for this. I was coming to look for this today, and it will be a big help.

    I wonder if you have insight into a related question? I wanted to change the size of the slider AND move it so instead of it appearing above the content area, it would be at the top of the left column, allowing my right sidebar to flush up against the banner at the top. Anyone have a walkthrough of that?

    Thanks!
