  • I’ve used the following code to place my header image in header.php of my parent theme.

    <img src=”<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/images/guitar%20jamming.jpg” width:”100%”; alt=”<?php bloginfo( ‘name’ ); ?>” />

    I’m also looking into making it clickable (to lead to homepage when clicked)

    And I notice that beneath the image, there’s a thin white line after it that separates it and the next component. How do I get rid of that white line?

  • Are you saying that you modified the parent theme header.php file? You should not be modifying parent theme files – that’s the whole point of using a child theme…

    Hmm, yea – noted on that 🙂

    How do I get rid of the white line ? 🙁

    You need to fix some errors in that header.php file (move the changed one to the child theme )

    I copied header.php from parent to child by dragging the file by route of (via FTP)

    parent theme -> desktop folder (PC) -> child theme

    Correct me if I’m doing this wrong – as I’ll always do so (this way) before editing the file in child theme (this I do if the file doesn’t already exist in child theme).

    So, I viewed the validator you pointed me to, it lists the errors – but I can’t quite figure out which file to look into (though I corrected some errors cos I remember where I placed those codes that triggered those errors stated by the validator. I apologise as I’m very new (and a non-technical person definitely) to WordPress.

    I tried adding attribute of things like width = 1000px to the <img> tag by just typing those codes like that into my child theme’s header.php but to no avail. The image stays the same size-wise.

    tried setting the image width and height to the maximum but it wouldn’t occupy the whole top area (used Firebug for this). I’m pretty much lost.
