Help! Lost top half of header image?

  • I’m using raindrops and suddenly the top 1/2 of my header image is all that shows like the page was resized or something? I tried updating to 3.5.1 t see if it helped, tried reloading the header image and still the bottom half dos not show. The header was sized in photoshop to the recommended size and has looked great for weeks until now….suggestions please! You can see it here stlshoot.com

  • Change the height on style:


    to the height of your image in your stylesheet. it’s about 200px check the properties of the uploaded file on your computer to see the height…

    The image was created at, and still is 940×198 the space for the image in the theme appears to have changed. In the link in the op you should see the bottom half of the globe and the rest of the text to the right side of the header…wp newb any help appreciated.

    Schrapnel, the solution can be found by Seacoast’s suggestion.

    If it’s a sudden change, try deactivating plugins to explore whether any could be responsible.

    I see the code below, where should I insert the header size?

    #header-image p{

    Do you have an option in your dashboard named something like, “Jetpack” or “Custom CSS”?

    Yes I have Jetpack, and under appearance is my Editor thats where I pasted the code from above.

    Try adding this to the Custom CSS section;

    #header-image {
     height: 200px;

    nothing, I’m at a loss. I really don’t want to have to do a theme change.

    Something’s wrong with the method you’re using to add the CSS.
    No Custom CSS from Jetpack is being brought through into the webpage.

    If I change to another theme and then change back will I lose my pages?

    You will not lose posts or pages as they are kept in the db, you will lose Page Templates as these are in the theme. You may also need to redo widgets and menus, depends on theme.

    Using the default theme with a Child Theme can prove invaluable over time.


    Ok thanks Seacoast, looks like I need to read up on Child Themes as soon as I get my header fixed!

    I just realized this has happened on another site that I have not touched for weeks also using the raindrops theme. Something changed in the raindrops theme in the last few days it seems.

    Here is the other site same header issue. http://www.teamdominatorfireworks.com/
