Expound
[resolved] Header Image Doubling Up in Responsive Design? (4 posts)

    Greetings All --
    I'm having some header issues with the responsive design in Expound 1.8 and as usual, it's probably my fault. I just updated the theme and saw that I lost the header's image ability to click to return to the homepage, so I copied the previous (1.5 I think?) theme's header code and it worked just fine. However now that the header image links back to the homepage (yay) in any responsive resolution, it doubles up and presents a weird, large background version of the header image (try shrinking this page)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Note that I tried some of the obvious CSS fixes, looking for a background repeat and such to no avail so I'm guessing it's something more tricky.

    Hey there! Copying old code into the new theme is not a very good approach at fixing this. What you really need is to enlarge the .site-title element and have it span across the whole header with CSS and have some transparent text (without the positioning and clipping to hide it).

    Konstantin -- Thanks again for creating a fantastic theme and keeping up with the support page. I know that you do this for free and it's great that you help so many of us out. Thanks a ton!

    I have returned to the new theme header.php file. I knew there was something with the .site-title element, I just wasn't sure how to deal with it. Does this mean I should have no custom header in place through the WP Admin page?

    Thanks!

    No, you should have both, but your site title should overlap the full header to make the area clickable with CSS.
