Support » Theme: Bouquet » Issues with the header and site title layout

    The problem I’m having right now is the header. I think what I need to edit is in the header file but I can’t find what, and I keep messing things up.
    http://ljsecretaddiction.com
    I like the way my header appears on my site. The problem is, if you look at the tab, I have no site title or description set for it to appear the way I like.
    see image here

    When I go to admin/settings and add the title and description it puts the white bar and text into my header
    See image
    I want to remove that bar and text and the description so I still have a site name and description set for my site, you just can’t see it ON my site.

    ps – I know I need a childs theme – I just learned that and will be doing that this week.

    Living Child Theme

    Child themes are great but you could actually do this just using CSS, with a custom CSS plugin. Try adding this code to the plugin with the title and description added:

    #branding {min-height: 184px;}
    #branding hgroup {display: none;}

    As fevered mentioned, CSS-only changes can be done without a child theme. Since you’re already using Jetpack, an easy way to add custom CSS is to activate the Custom CSS module. You’ll then add your custom CSS in the new stylesheet editor that’ll appear in your dashboard, under Appearance > Edit CSS.

    Let us know if her CSS accomplishes what you’re after.

    Keep in mind that the header in Bouquet is a background image, and pieces of it will likely be cropped at smaller screen sizes like tablets and phones. For this reason, it’s not really intended to have text or logos within it – it’s better suited for an abstract image or photo which can withstand cropping better.

    Ahhhhh Fevered – have I told you that O love you?
    THANK YOU! something so darn simple.

    Kathryn, That’s how I do my css but I was told that I needed to do a childs theme because if this theme was updated I would lose all my changes.

    I was somewhat aware of the header thing but crap lol….I have tried many times to make it the way I wanted with text and description on there but I couldn’t accomplish a look I liked. Getting the images to go around the title and then getting enough space to fit the description – was a nightmare. I gave up and went for my own static header…which apparently will be a big old mess on an iphone r tablet *smacks forehead*
    Maybe one day I’ll tackle it again. Now that I found this area on the forum I can always come back for help if I do 🙂

    Thanks you guys

    Glad fevered’s CSS did the trick!

    Kathryn, That’s how I do my css but I was told that I needed to do a childs theme because if this theme was updated I would lose all my changes.

    If you make your CSS changes through a Custom CSS plugin like the CSS module built into Jetpack, you will not lose your changes when you update the theme. A child theme isn’t required if you only need to make CSS changes, and you use a CSS plugin like you’re already doing. 🙂

    The white bar in the header is longer than it needs to be. It’s stretching outside the area to the left. It wasn’t like this before. I don’t know why it’s like that now. How can this be corrected?

    My site is http://gwynplum.com. The white bar in the header is too long to the left. Please take a look and tell me how to fix it. It wasn’t like that before.

    Thanks a lot!

    romwrit – the site title background area in Bouquet is designed to extend slightly to the left within a white translucent overlay, as you can see on the demo here: https://bouquetdemo.wordpress.com/

    Is it possible you were overriding that default design with some custom CSS that you’ve since removed?

    p.s. please start a new thread in the future rather than adding to one that’s old, unrelated, and already marked as resolved. Thanks. I’m closing this one, but feel free to start a new one if you still need help.
