Am trying to add our own header to the Minimum theme – it only seems to allow for a 100pixel high image by 1140px.
I want to add a 1140 by 376 px image to be on every page as well as maintaining the mobile responsiveness of the theme. I go to Appearance >> Header.
I’ve managed to find the 100px declaration in the functions.php file and change it to 376 but it still does not show the correct height on the front end.
I assume some code or CSS is making this happen?

Yes, look for the height in the CSS and change it there. Also, you may need to re-upload your header again.July 24, 2013 at 1:29 am #52193
Thanks for your reply
Ok I updated this at line 185
background-position: top center!important;
margin: 0 auto;
Now when I resize the header the header space stays at 376px and it does not resize to fit the image container.
Re-added header image as well and still same behaviour.
Thanks for any help. I usually don’t have so much trouble with Genesis themes.

I am trying to change the header size in the Minimum theme – it only allows for a 1140px image by 100px. – Same issue as above. I cannot change the header height to 256px.
I have changed it under
/* Image Header – Partial Width
I added the png file to the theme images as header.png.
I still can’t get the Appearance/Header to change the size from 1140 x 100 to 1140 x 256.
I, also, would appreciate any assistance in resolving this issue.
Thank you.July 27, 2013 at 5:06 pm #52874
Open up the functions and look for 1140 x 100. Change the 100 to 256 and save it. Then upload your header image again.July 28, 2013 at 11:04 am #52977
Thank you for your assistance. I did make the changes –
/** Add support for custom header */
/** Changed Add support for custom header height from 100 to 256*/
add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
‘width’ => 1140,
‘height’ => 256
I removed all images from the Medial Library
The Appearance/Header reflected 1140 x 256 – However, when I uploaded the image the crop/publish would only allow half of the height. I literally had to change the height from 256 to 405 for it to highlight the whole height of 256. Of course that was to big.
I have changed the image it is now height 205px – changed the functions – tried to load the image again. Appearance would reflect the size correctly but when it came to cropping it cut the height by 50%.
I continued to try many things – and thought I would write for more advice when I tried by more thing. the image width was not 1140 but 578. I change the functions to reflect width of 578..
Removed all images, upload the image file again and there it was – perfect. Functions now reflect Height 578 and Width 205. I honestly did not think that the width remaining as 1140 would effect the process.
Again, thank you for your assistance.
