    Hi
    I have just transferred my site http://guided-mountain-walks.com/ onto hosting server but the header images on mobile devices are not responsive on mobile view. The image spreads across the theme meaning the other content is reduced to a small portion of the screen. Thanks for your which would be much appreciated

  • Whatever time suits you Fahad? Not sure where you are but it’s 10pm here in Ireland. Would around 1pm suit? You can contact me on skype donal.mc.caffrey if it suits.
    To try and explain – everything is fine on desktop and tablet. The problem is on smart phone devices when in mobile view. At the moment the headers are no longer visible on my phone when in mobile view (in full site view, it’s fine) The problem before was that they were visible but they didn’t seem to be responsive. Ideally I would like the full headers to appear across the screen whilst in mobile view. Hope that makes sense.
    Thanks

    I have added you on Skype. I am personally interested to help you in this issue because for wide images, it can be a good fix for all other users too. So let’s discuss it tomorrow.

    Hi Fahad
    Sorry to bother you again but the WP theme I am using ‘Shapely’ was updated a while back and since the update the header images are no longer visible
    I’ve been away for a while so only getting back to this now. I assume it is because of the update but I see your installation process might have changed so I was wondering if you have any idea what the problem might be or should I try reinstalling the plugin to see if that sorts it out.
    Thank you – the site is http://www.guided-mountain-walks.com

    You need to paste shortcode in header again or i would suggest you to use child theme for this purpose instead of editing parent theme.

    Thanks Fahad
    Can you confirm the piece of shortcode I need to insert. and where exactly in the child theme. I have the following templates within my child theme.
    • Theme Functions
    (functions.php)
    • content-page.php
    (template-parts/content-page.php)
    • content.php
    (template-parts/content.php)
    Styles
    • Stylesheet
    (style.css)
    One last thing – would I need to delete the code which I had previously inserted into my parent theme, header.php I think it was, though I don’t remember exactly which code I used.

    Go to parent theme and copy header.php from there to child theme. And then insert the shortcode in it.
    Let me know if it works?

    Hi Fahad
    Not sure how to set up a new header.php template within the child theme. is it OK to copy over all the contents of the parent header.php template,, if so copy to which of my existing child theme templates?
    Thanks Fahad and sorry for the hassle

    Copy complete file header.php to child theme. Are you not doing it through ftp?

    Hi Fahad
    Yes I will do that. In the meantime (after I had a problem and was in touch with the hosting provider) I input the following code
    do_shortcode(‘[WP_HEADER_IMAGES]’);
    into the child theme functions.php file and the banners are now visible yet unlike before they appear above the navbar (previously they were below). Any thoughts how I can sort that out – and can you just confirm that once I get the header.php copied over I should input the same code as above into the appropriate area of the header.php file.
    thanks

    Functions.php is the recommended file for this shortcode, please use it in header.php and if child theme is not having header.php so you can copy this file from parent theme.

    Thanks Fahad. I am nearly there – if I could ask one final question. If you look at the website https://guided-mountain-walks.com/about-us/ you’ll see the banner is perfect but comes above the navbar.
    To get the headers below the navbar, which bit of code exactly do I need to put into the header.php code below and where exactly does it need to go.
    Thanks again for your time

    Just after header closing tag, I guess.

    Sorry for not getting back to you Fahad – I’ve been away for a while.
    Can I check that the following code is what you suggest I insert into the header.php child theme.
    <span class=”yellow”><?php do_action(‘apply_header_images’); ?></span>
    OR
    <span class=”light_blue”><?php do_shortcode(‘[WP_HEADER_IMAGE

    Thanks
