    My custom header is not showing up. I just upgraded to WordPress 3.6.1. I went to Appearance->Header, and I selected my custom header from the media library and saved, but it is not showing up. Will you please help?

    Thank you.

    What is your url? I'll take a look.

    Thank you! The url is http://www.ujamaaplace.org. It keeps showing the default headers for Tarski, and my custom head isn't showing up.

    Are you making your changes in a child theme?

    I'm making changes in the Tarski theme.

    One thing that I see is this theme has not been updated since December of 2012. It may not be compatible with the latest wordpress 3.6.1.

    What are my options? Is it possible for me to downgrade to an earlier version of WordPress?

    On the theme's page, I found some additional info that may help.

    QUICK UPGRADE GUIDE

    Back up any custom stylesheets, headers etc.
    Switch to the default theme
    Upgrade WordPress (if required)
    Update your Tarski files
    Put your custom files back
    Switch back to Tarski

    Changing themes ensures that Tarski isn’t running while you update your files, and triggers the upgrade routine.

    I would suggest switching to the default theme and back and see if that helps.

    I would suggest going through the upgrade steps and see if that resets things first. The latest wordpress update was for security, I don't think you want to leave your site open for those leaks.

    You really should make a child theme for tarski and make any changes to css there. Otherwise when there is an upgrade, your changes will be overwritten.

    Okay, I will look into it. I really am a luddite when it comes to all this. Thanks for your help!

    It turned out there was a bad plugin. Once deleted, that took care of the problem. Thank you again for taking the time to help - I appreciate it! Have a great day.
