[resolved] Enlarging header image (my logo) (5 posts)

    I'm new to WordPress and playing around with the Spun theme - I love the theme but just want to make some small changes.

    I'm trying to enlarge the custom header image (my logo), but not having any luck, and hoping someone here can guide me in the right direction.

    I went to the Spun stylesheet (style.css) window and changed the last line of this from "max-height: 75px;" to "max-height: 135px;" because I want the header image to be increased to 135px high

    #masthead img {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 1em;
    width: auto;
    max-height: 135px;

    I updated the file, but unfortunately the change didn't take effect.

    Along these lines, I've been trying to change the font of post titles from Baskerville (I think it's Baskerville) to Helvetica Neue, but haven't had any luck with the edits I made to the stylesheet.

    Sorry if this topic has been discussed before. I'll also add that I tried a few plugins. I can't find one that will give me the ability to englage my logo/header image within the Spun theme. I installed a plugin that allows me to change the fonts within posts, but it doesn't give me the option of changing fonts in any other fields (menu, post title, etc.)

    My site is steincraft.us, but there is currently a coming soon page up, while I work out these kinks. Thank you so much for any help!

    It would be useful if I can see you active site. Is that possible?

    In the meantime try adding the following line of code afer max-height:135px;

    height: 135px;

    Let me know if you need anymore help.

    If you're just trying some CSS customisations, you can do so through this Custom CSS Manager plugin. Otherwise there's a large risk that you'll lose your changes when the theme updates.

    By the way, you need to remove your coming soon page if you want us to see your logo issue because there is no such logo on the theme's demo website for us to compare.

    See this thread for custom header size changes:

    For CSS changes, like the font family, I recommend using a browser addon like Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools to Inspect your site to find the proper selectors to change. Or go through style.css and find any areas where the Baskerville font family is set, then add a new rule with the same selector to your child theme's style.css or Custom CSS plugin and change the font-family there.

    Thanks so much for the replies. Afzaal, your suggestion worked!

    Caroline, I had made the CSS changes you suggested, to no avail. But when I refreshed the page this morning, the font had changed from Baskerville to Helvetica Neue. So I guess it was just a cache refresh issue. Thank you!
