Full width header? (6 posts)

    I am using the Custom Community theme on http://www.theurbansniper.com and have two issues I need help with.

    1) The header image is only as wide as the content div and does not extend to cover the sidebar.

    2) The header slide show is a nice feature but why doesn't the image fill the alloted space?
    2.a) I would like the make the thumbnail section of the slide show smaller and make the large image (left side) larger.

    I've resolved my header width by adjusting a line in the function.php but this will not stick through a theme update, will it?

    Still trying to figure out slideshow width.

    Hi Luci, you are right, the changes you made to the theme, won't stick when the theme is updated. Create a child theme and make all the change u want. you can read about child themes here : http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    regarding your slideshow width, change the width of your images to the size you want.

    Thanks, I ‘ve made a child theme so I should be good with the header.

    As for the slide show width. All images are over 1000px wide and the slide show compresses them down to roughly 400px

    try adding the following code to your css :


    adjust the width according to your requirement.
    Also, use firebug plugin/for firefox for making these kind of changes.

    Yes! That was half of the issue.

    Now the image fills up the alloted space however I would like the link list (the right side of the slide show) to be the same size as my right sidebar.
