How can I enlarge the header to fit my logo? (14 posts)

    I have a custom designed logo that I want to display as the header. <ost headers in the templates are too small. Having to crop the image destroys the logo. This is my first day using wordpress.

    It can be done by adding a filter in functions.php if you using twentyten theme as i am using twentyten child theme.

    add this just after <?php at very top

    add_filter('twentyten_header_image_height','my_header_height');
    add_filter('twentyten_header_image_width','my_header_width');
    function my_header_height($size){
    return 100;
    }
    function my_header_width($size){
    return 700;
    }

    You can change 100 700 to your size.

    Now if you go to upload a header image you will see the new size.

    This is the way I entered the code you sent to me. I'm showing it in context of what was there already. Is this correct?

    Thanks Gov

    /*
    Theme Name: Twenty Ten<?php
    add_filter('twentyten_header_image_height','my_header_height');
    add_filter('twentyten_header_image_width','my_header_width');
    function my_header_height($size){
    return 415;
    }
    function my_header_width($size){
    return 797;
    */
    /*
    Used to style the TinyMCE editor.
    */
    html .mceContentBody {
    max-width:640px;
    }
    * {
    font-family: Georgia, "Bitstream Charter", serif;
    color: #444;
    line-height: 1.5;
    }

    Hmm.......I must not have done it correctly. It's still asking me to crop it

    Did you add that to functions.php

    I thought adding the code and hitting "upload file" was all I had to do. How do you add it to Functions.php? Again, only first day. Sorry if I seem so lame. I read a lot of material but after a while it all seems to run together. I'm under pressure to get this site up and that doesn't help either. I'd like it to function more like a web page rather than a blog. I was assured this was the easiest way to go. By the way, did you get a mesage from me at GBP Central? I joined but it didn't seem to send the message when I hit the send button.

    The code provided worked to an extent. It did enlarge the header, but it is off center and going off the screen to the right. I do I center it?
