[Resolved] How do I change size of image in header?

  • I am using the Admired Theme and have created a child theme. I wanted to increase the size of the image I placed in the header. Here is a link to my site.

    I added the code below to the child theme style sheet and modified the width and height. Nothing happened.

    #header-logo {
    position: relative;
    width: 1010px;
    height: 105px;
    }

    Did I do something incorrect?
    Thanks

    to add a link, it is best to write the link text first, then highlight it and click the ‘link’ button to add the link url

    the image is a (small) background image:
    /wp-content/uploads/2013/01/25-e1358992258779-300×68.jpg
    and background images do not (without extra css, and then only in modern browsers) scale to the size of the container.

    try to use a larger image as a header logo in the theme options.

    I uploaded a larger image and still nothing happened. There has to be a way to increase the width and height of the header image as defined by the theme.

    in the ‘admired options’ for the ‘header options’ ‘custom log’, try and persist to enter this image:

    http://simplesavvyliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Header-Flowers.jpg

    scroll down and click the ‘save all changes’ button

    I did upload and “install” using custom logo with the theme options and nothing happened. That is what I meant by uploaded.

    I had a bit of trouble with that as well to get the full size image into the logo (although I did not work with a child theme);
    for instance, check that the image is set to ‘full’ size …

    possibly post the question in the direct support section of the theme:
    http://wordpress.org/support/theme/admired
    (scroll down to the input form)

    or force the full size header logo image by adding this to style.css of your child theme:

    #header-logo{ background: url(http://simplesavvyliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Header-Flowers.jpg) no-repeat!important;}

    remember to clear the browser cache by pressing ‘reload’ or ‘ctrl f5’ …

    I did post on the theme support page. From the look of the comments there, there is not a great deal of support going on. People who have posted recently are not getting much in terms of replies.

    Thanks for the help.

    Finally fixed it.
