[resolved] old and new hdr images superimposed - why? How to fix? (5 posts)

    In my default theme, my new 760x130 image shows up AFTER a rectangular 760/200 blue field appears, and the blue 70 pixels show above my new image - NOT the default Kubrick header.

    I named my new image kubrickheader.jpg to avoid introducing still another potential problem. Changed css #headerimg - am overwhelmed by functions.php that most likely is involved, and renamed header-img.php so it would not be found since it seems to want to create an image, from how the code looks.

    Read all I could and tried two solid days to fix this before posting here. This is my second post on that issue because I could not find my first, after 3 hrs of trying.

    The domain is mundi-causa dot org, my name here is ponderman, the prior post title was 'two header images', I believe.

    I would greatly!! welcome help -

    for future reference, and NOT to complain, under your name it says "member" -- member is a link to your profile, http://wordpress.org/support/profile/200644, which shows your post history :)

    So you have that in the future :)

    as to your problem, in your CSS, there is this:

    #header {
    background: #73a0c5 url('images/kubrickheader.jpg') no-repeat bottom center;
    	}

    remove the background color.

    #header {
    	background-color: #73a0c5;
    	margin: 0 0 0 1px;
    	padding: 0;
    	height: 200px;
    	width: 758px;
    	}

    its there too, remove that

    background-color: #73a0c5;

    In fact, I would try that first.

    Thank you for your feedback, whooami. Started with a fresh theme install (with the kubrickheader.jpg) and called the site, which shows the superimposed images again. Made the two changes. No old header and no blue field any longer, but also no new image, although it shows up in presentations. Just white space where the default Kubrick image was.

    IF or when the new image shows up which is 760x130, It may show up 70 pixels from the top, that's where it showed up against the blue 760x200 blue rectangular background before.

    As to showing up as 'member' before - I have no idea how I even got to place my question originally. But there was a login palce to complete and I took my best shot and it worked. Glad I found my way back here to get your response. Now comes the task of the new image to show up aligned on top, with the "hello world" starting right beneath that. Sure would welcome your input again.

    Excess blue background above the new 760x130 image was solved by removing the color as recommended by whooami and by changing the height in #headerimg from 192 to 122, i.e. by retaining the 8 pixel reduction (from 200 height to 192), i.e. the 130 height was reduced here to 122.
