Support » Theme: Openstrap » Header disappears when I select not to show header text with image

  • I have been trying to upload a custom header to my site. I’ve been trying several different images trying to find one that fits best. Now when I select not to show header text in image, the entire header disappears, including header widgets.

    If you select not to show header from WP settings then it obvious behaving correctly.

    Try setting the header image using theme options -> basic settings



    I’m having exactly the same issue – I’d like an image (logo) instead of the text, but I need something to go in the <title> attribute. I don’t want the text to appear. But if I turn off ‘Display Header Text’ under Appearance > Customize, the ‘Header Background’ image disappears too. If I add an image to ‘Site Logo’, nothing happens. Where should this appear? I have extensively modified a child of the theme, and also changed some stuff in the main bootstrap.css file when I couldn’t get the child theme’s style.css to override the bootstrap.css settings, so this might be affecting the non-existence of the Site Logo image. I’d also like the image to be clickable to take the user back to the home page.

    I could theoretically change the h1 tag to have color: transparent, but h1 is used extensively throughout my site.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    UPDATE: I got around this by leaving the Site Title (in Appearance > Customize) blank, but keeping Display Header Text ON. I then edited header.php – I removed the php code from the <title> attribute and replaced it with my site’s title. Not an ideal workaround, but it did the job. It’ll be a real headache if I ever download an updated Openstrap theme….!

    you need to keep the show header text check box on.
    Did you guys try to set background image for header and logo from theme options? Theme Options -> Basic Settings has way to set this.

    Please try and let me know.

    I tried all these options.
    If I set logo from theme options -> basic settings then logo appears on front page but header text does not.
    Looks like its allowing to set either logo or header text.

    Please suggest any option to set both logo and text.

    -Thank you

    I’m having the issue of not being able to SHOW the text over my header image. I have two OpenStrap sites (love the design!) — my site offers me the option (a box with “Display Header Text”) under “Customize Site Title”; a new site I developed for a friend does NOT have this box. If I take off the header image, I see the text. Can you please help?
    Thanks a bunch!
