Support » Theme: Oxygen » Enlarging Header Image

  • Hello!

    I am newer to using and was not using a child theme when I upgraded my Oxygen theme, so, my customizations did not save 😛

    The customization I want to make is making the header image larger. On the last version, I was able to go into the CSS and just edit the #header and #branding and that worked. This time around, that’s not working. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to enlarge the header image? I think there’s some code that’s automatically resizing my header image to a specified size….I just can’t figure out where that is.

    My site is

    Thanks so much!

  • Hey Angel1410,

    I took a look at your website and you seem to got it fixed. I have the same problem, maybe you can help me out? Don’t know anything about the #header or #branding, so maybe you can explain?


    Hello Angel1410,
    Please, how do I activate a child theme when I upgrade to Oxygen Theme.
    HOw can I enlarge the Header image?


    They easiest way to get your child theme is with the one click child theme plugin. It is better to download it in you dashboard, so you have it there right away.

    You can make your child theme with by going to appearance –> child theme, fill in the fields and click on create child theme. The child theme automatticly installs.

    I didn’t figure out how to enlarge the image though…

    After manual way did not received the results I wanted, I decided to try installing Child Theme with the plugin “One-click Child Theme”. It did worked and SOLVED all the problems I had before.

    2. I resolved the header image also.
    I inserted in style.css the line:
    #branding { width: 100%; }

    In the cropping step, after uploading the image I needed, I just made the crop at full length of the image, even if the blinking crop borderss had an proportion of 400px/100px. Now the header image has 940px/100px.

    Hope this could help.
