    Yes. I did have that query but, I guess I could have articulated it differently and perhaps I misunderstood the response.

    Hi Abhijeet,

    Yes, the header should display at full width by default. If it’s not acting as expected even with a clean version of the theme (and without the child theme activated) then a third-party plugin may be causing a conflict with the needed JavaScript.

    Thank you for clarifying with examples! With that, I guess I can proceed with creating a Child Theme using this recommended plugin. πŸ™‚

    Thank you.

    It could just be my site. Later this evening, I had these kind of errors (while disabling plugins one by one trying to troubleshoot an unrelated problem). I have fixed these but thought of sharing it here. Just in case it helps in your assessment.

    Thank you Gary.

    Do you mean, resize the browser on laptop and test navigation menu? If so, yes. It’s just the Header image that is not full width. Sorry, but, did I get your question right?

    (@backpackingseries)

    Did you make changes to any other theme files, like footer.php, in either the parent or child theme?

    Please try uploading a completely clean version of Gazette – do not just ftp 2 files.

    Users sometimes inadvertently delete wp_footer() and/or the closing HTML tags for the body and footer in footer.php when attempting to remove the credits text (example).

    This results in the theme being unable to load certain javascript files.

    Thank you Gary.

    I had similar doubts and so I reinstalled Gazette. But, the issue persists. I hope the steps above help in some way to suggest further. Please help!

    Hello Siobhan,

    Thank you for the quick response. Sorry for pasting a long error message in the steps below. But I hope it provides something of value to assess.

    1. Deactivated all plugins (including Jetpack) one-by-one. One plugin crashed the WP Dashboard with the following errors:

    Warning: include(home/directory/public_html/wp-content/themes/gazette/inc/updater.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in home/directory/public_html/wp-content/themes/gazette/functions.php on line 255

    Warning: include(): Failed opening ‘home/directory/public_html/wp-content/themes/gazette/inc/updater.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/opt/php70/lib/php’) in home/directory/public_html/wp-content/themes/gazette/functions.php on line 255

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at home/directory/public_html/wp-content/themes/gazette/functions.php:255) in home/directory/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 1210

    2. Status in cPanel confirmed all plugins were disabled. Status of Header image – no change. I then removed Gazette and reinstalled it. The Dashboard recovered and is normal now.

    Status: With all plugins disabled, the Header Image issue persists.

    3. Gazette Behavior on WordPress.com: It prompted me to look up my wordpress.com site that also uses Gazette. This is what I found: when I remove the featured image from a page, the page does not default to the theme’s Header image (defined under Appearance – Customize – Header). Instead it does not show any Header at all.

    I’m not sure what’s happening and hope this helps in some way to suggest further! Thank you!

    Kind regards

    Hello Siobhan! πŸ™‚

    Many thanks for taking this up and the quick reply!

    After reviewing the guide you shared, I have the following observations:

    1. The plugin I used to create the Child Theme did an “import” instead of using the enqueue method (not sure whether it impacts the current situation)
    2. The functions.php of the child theme contains just a closing “<?php” . There’s nothing else.

    I switched back to use the parent Gazette theme. I noticed that the functions.php of the parent theme was modified (perhaps too many undocumented changes). So I downloaded the original Gazette files, unzipped the archive and FTPd the functions.php and style.css. Alas, the problem persists.

    Questions:
    1. Is this the default theme behavior when using the Appearance – Customize – Header method to define a header for all pages? Or does the javascript (to move the image and post/page title into the header area after the document has loaded) work only for Custom Headers set via page editor?
    2. If this is not an expected behavior, could there be other files that I might need to replace (just to be sure)?
    3. Anything else?

    I look forward to your advise before using the recommended plugin in the guide to create the child theme once again.

    Kind regards

    Hello,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    WordPress popped up a notification in the WP Dashboard to update the plugin and so I went ahead and clicked ‘update now’ link. This was last evening. And today, I woke up to a locked site. I used the cPanel to disable the plugin and enter the wp-admin area. Re-activated UserWP and the site is normal now.

    I did try accessing the wp-admin URL directly again. But the problem did not recur. So, I don’t know what caused this. As you said, perhaps the upgrade function did not fire properly and required the plugin to restart (deactivate – activate).

    Kind regards

    Okay, the cPanel allowed me to disable UsersWP plugin and I could log back in. I re-activated the plugin and things look fine for now. But the plugin behavior (after upgrade) was strange.

    Could it happen if someone tries to access wp-admin URL directly (like I did before it locked me out)?

    Thank you very much for a quick response!

    Yes, I did try out a custom template for this page in question and reverting the page attributes did not help. I simply recreated it, updated the permalinks, and it works fine.

    These forums are great! Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Hello Siobhan,

    Thank you for all the extremely helpful responses and for sharing the resource links.

    Bottom line: It works! : )

    As recommended, I deactivated the ‘Default Featured Image’ plugin and had to recreate few pages – their headers were behaving badly due to a custom post template that I had gotten rid off (tried too many things for my own good!).

    The way you explained the steps, it worked smoothly after editing the footer.php.

    Thank you once again. These forums are great!

    Kind regards

    Thank you for the response.

    I am not familiar with coding. So I do not know where and how to add this snippet. Could you please advise?

    Meanwhile, I found a work-around to map the ‘Account’ to another page in the General settings page. Though it works, I would like to remove the link altogether.

    PS: I read somewhere that using the CSS style {display: none} can impact SEO of the site (since it is commonly used by spammers) and is a recommended ‘no-go’. I am not sure whether it is true in this case.

    Thank for the response.

    Sorry, I have not tried it yet. My question assumed that the configuration panel remains the same.

    So far, I have had pleasant experiences with your software. Problems go away with every click. UsersWP’s intuitiveness and lightweight, modular design makes it a one of its kind plugin. So, your question makes me wonder and I will post back if questions remain.

    Cheers
