Help with header (7 posts)

    Im using the theme autofocus, but I've been trying to use the header from the theme grid focus but I haven't had too much luck. I've tried changing the menu and nav in the css to match the grid focus css and switch out the header but its not quite working.

    How would I go about switching the header? Is there an easier way of doing things, or should I just keep playing with the css and hope I get somewhere? Thanks

    If you're lucky, both themes simply use something like a header.jpg. Download the image that you want to your computer, upload it to the other theme with the name that that theme uses and when the images have the same size, that's it.

    To add an image to your header you need to add it to the css here:

    #header {
    -moz-background-clip:border;
    -moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
    -moz-background-origin:padding;
    background:transparent url(http://www.shalaco.com/shalacosching.jpg) no-repeat scroll left top;
    clear:none;
    float:left;
    height:105px;
    margin:55px 0 0;
    width:600px;
    }

    as seen in my blog

    shalzers - where exactly do you insert that code? In the style sheet?

    And is there no way for you to take the image from your computer? It has to be online somewhere?

    omg I have the exact same question except I am using the theme "Comet" and the header image I would like to use is on my desktop. In other cases with other themes there is usually a button that says 'upload image' and then I browse my desktop for the image - have no idea what the "address" to the image in my desktop is. And in some of these themes where you can upload a header they give you the dimensions so that you can create a header that fits the theme.

    Anyone have any ideas of how I can make my header space bigger? I've inserted my logo, but it gets cut off.
