Support » Themes and Templates » Codium header image makes my BLOG DISAPPEAR!

  • Resolved skyediaz


    Hi, I’m using Codium Extend 1.0.8 by Henri Labarre theme with WP version 3.1 and noticed that the header image makes my whole blog disappear when I’m logged off of the WP Admin area (except for the background). Why is this??? The image is a jpg and the size is exactly what the theme called for. What do i need to do??

  • Open functions.php and change this :

    // gets included in the site header
    function header_style() {
        if (get_header_image() != ''){
        ?><style type="text/css">
            div#header {
                background: url(<?php header_image(); ?>); height :230px; -moz-border-radius-topleft:6px;border-top-left-radius:6px;-moz-border-radius-topright:6px;border-top-right-radius:6px;
            <?php if ( 'blank' == get_header_textcolor() ) { ?>
    		h1.blogtitle,.description { display: none; }
    		<?php } else { ?>
    		h1.blogtitle a,.description { color:#<?php header_textcolor() ?>; }
    		} ?>

    And it will work

    I changed what I had to the above and my whole site just shows this and I can’t even get into WP Admin now:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘&’ in /home/koonchu/public_html/ on line 20

    I was careful to change the right section. Did you mean replace what I had with what you listed above? That is what I did and now I can’t do anything.

    Use the last build 1.0.9 and if it doesn’t work remove all plugins and retry.

    Thanks Henri… i was using 1.0.9, i had to reinstall the whole thing and start from scratch since i couldn’t even log into WP admin, and now it works finally! 🙂 Thanks a bunch, it just sucked i had to rebuild.

    Hi Henry, how do i get the container to be transparent? I want the white container to be transparent?

    Check out the site

    Open style.css and change background color for


    use background-color:transparent; instead of background-color:#fff;

    thanx Henri, would this be under the /* Layout */ css?


    Shot henri, got it right, give thanx man

    I have a problem with codium extended 1.0.9, I can’t see the menus or widgets on iphone(4) via safari. I am just trialling templates at the moment, I intend to change it to see others, I would like to use codium as it looks great but won’t if I can’t get it to work on iphone. I will leave up for a few days so you can see. Thanks -POFO

    Hi Henri,
    I am fairly new to designing a website (two weeks) and I really like the Codium Extend 1.0.9 you made, so I am using it.
    I would like to use my website as a blog and as a website with additional information. I would like that you can only post comments on the blog page (called home).
    How do I change that?
    It would be great if you have time to answer my question!
    Merci beaucoup!


    Hello Henri,

    How do I reduce the height of the header? The default is 980 x 250 but I’d like it to be 980 x 125.

    I’ve been into (functions.php) and I’ve changed the “250” here:

    // This theme allows users to set a custom header image
    define(‘HEADER_TEXTCOLOR’, ‘444’);
    define(‘HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH’, 980); // use width and height appropriate for your theme
    define(‘HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT’, 250);

    …to “125”. When I upload and publish a suitable image it looks good on the preview page but on the website the image is doubled with two of the same image stacked on top of one another. What am I doing wrong?
