Support » Themes and Templates » Kubrick: wrong header in rss-reader

  • I changed the header-image in the default-Theme (Kubrick) of WP 2.0.2. Everything looks fine within a browser like Firefox, IE or Safari. But my newsreader (NetNewsWire for Mac) is showing a blue header (like the default) instead of the new one.

    Seems like Kubrick is overwriting the background-image with a header of its own (but not in usual browser-view). A reset in the options panel doesn’t work. The code is somewhere hidden in functions.php and head-img.php but I’m not a programmer.

    How can I stop Kubrick from automatically generating its own header. Simply deleting the two php-files doesn’t help. I’ve already tried that.

    Can anybody help a newbie like me?

    I would enquire also at the Newsgator forums.

    There is no code at all – it should look raw like this to a browser ( ) and if it formats any way at all it’s the feedreader – in my experience anyway.

    Edit – it looks just like all the rest in FeedDemon. No problems.

    There is definetly a code in functions.php:

    function kDefaults() {
    document.getElementById(‘headerimage’).value = ”;
    document.getElementById(‘advuppercolor’).value = document.getElementById(‘uppercolor’).value = ‘#69aee7’;
    document.getElementById(‘advlowercolor’).value = document.getElementById(‘lowercolor’).value = ‘#4180b6’;
    document.getElementById(‘header’).style.background = ‘url(“<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/images/kubrickheader.jpg”) center no-repeat’;
    document.getElementById(‘header’).style.color = ‘#FFFFFF’;
    document.getElementById(‘advfontcolor’).value = document.getElementById(‘fontcolor’).value = ”;
    document.getElementById(‘fontdisplay’).value = ‘inline’;
    document.getElementById(‘headerimg’).style.display = document.getElementById(‘fontdisplay’).value;


    if I set the “value =” from ‘#69aee7’ to ‘#ffffff’ the header in my newsreader turns from blue to white.

    Is there any possibility to delete the whole header-configuration-stuff in the themes-options of WP-Admin? I don’t need any color-selection. Just want to show my header-image in browsers AND newsdeaders.

    Adding an image to a feed is a whole new ballgame to having a site header.
    That’s old but might help.

    I don’t want to have an image within my feed! Clicking on a post in the RSS-feed leeds to a fullscreen view of the blog in the newsreader – so that the user doesn’t have to start another application. But the newsreader-view is missing the header-image. All other image-files are displayed correctly.

    All I want is to kill the wp-code that prevents my newsreader from showing the orginal header-image.

    This is what it looks like in a browser:

    and this is the newsreader:
