Support » Themes and Templates » Changing theme header image

  • I am new to WordPress and having some issues adjusting the size of an image on my theme.

    I’m not sure if it is classified as a head image but the theme I am modifying is Oxygen. I want the image to be wider and taller enough to cover from the sidebar to the end of the menu.

    I’m using the CSS to look for an area where I might be able to make this happen but I’m coming up with blanks here.

    Here is the site:

    Would I be adjusting the code in the CSS or will I be jumping into the PHP files?

    Hope I’ve provided enough info to get a response.

    Thanks in advance!

    the space for the image is limited because of those atyles in style.css:

    #branding {
    	float: left;
    	width: 45%;
    	overflow: hidden;


    #header img {width:100%; }

    changing these width values will hava na effect on the positon of the menu…

    adapt here:

    #menu-primary {
    	bottom: 170px;

    try and work with a tool such as Firebug to investigate formatting problems.

    Ahh, thanks so much. I knew there was something obstructing the one half of the menu. I’ll definitely check out Firebug.

    Thanks for your help!

    hi, I have switch a site from to it’s own url and I cannot change the header image to it’s full size. I have tried for hours with firebug, with custom css manager, or directly in the editor but still have a small header. I’ve been able to see the size with custom CSS manager but it wouldn’t stay and really the code. tried to change the 45% in #branding but no lasting success.

    Please need help me after that i have to find how to put back the slider on this site
