    I’m having trouble getting my header right. I have tried many different things and many different sizes, but with no avail. I figured I’d better ask here.

    Here’s what it looks like now.

    I like this size and how it is even with everything below the menu bar, but it’s cutting off the right end of the header, unfortunately.

    There’s also an issue of the padding below the header, which I’d like to get rid of.

    I have the plugin installed that enables me to change the size of the header (Genesis Simple Headers), but it doesn’t seem to be as easy to adjust the size as it sounds.

    Anyway, thanks for any help you can give me.

    your header is 960px by 323px wide. You need to make header image that size.

    Right. Is there more than one place I need to do that, though? I’ve changed the size of the image itself, and changed it in the Genesis Simple Headers plugin, and have even looked into changing it in the style css, all to no avail.

    Thanks so much!

    your image is 1000px. if you make it 960px it should be good. make sure the image is not cached.

    Ok, that didn’t work for me. I’m wondering if it has to do with the fact that the size is 960×280. However, when it asked me how I wanted to crop it, it actually cropped from the top and bottom, but when I looked at the header on the blog, it was cut off on the right side. I cleared the cache and tried again, but no dice.

    Yes, that’s probably why it’s not working.

    Look in theme functions.php for something like this:

    /** Add support for custom header */
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
    ‘width’ => 960,
    ‘height’ => 115
    ) );

    You can adjust the custom header to whatever you want.

    Ok great, I got it. I also needed to change the minimum width in the Style css to 280.

    Thanks ever so much!
