    Hi,

    I am using prose theme and having difficulty with my logo and the width of Header widget. I want to put a logo of 220 px along with flash file in the header widget on the right side. The Header image option doesn’t let me upload a logo size 220 x 71 px because it considers the entire width of header and doesn’t accept any small image because it crops it very badly then.

    I have uploaded a sample header image and i want my header to look like it accommodating small logo, tagline under it and a flash file of size 728 x 90 pix on the right side in the header widget.

    How it can be done, can anyone help?

    There are probably better ways to do this, but in my functions.php file I’d add this code at the end:

    [php]
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
    ‘width’ => 728,
    ‘height’ => 90
    ) );
    [/php]

    Then I’d upload it using the WordPress Header screen.

    Sorry, I have no idea how to embed flash in there. This might help:

    Thanks Dev. I put the code in custom function area of genesis and then uploaded the flash code in the Header widget area, but half of the flash file is on display and the right half is not visible. After putting the code, it also increases the height of header. Can we do something else to resolve it?

    I am looking to increase my logo area in the delicious theme.  Currently I think the space is 115 px high x 260 px long.  It is on the left top side.  Might be the title area and not the header.

    Would the same snippet work?

    Thank you for your time.

    SE Marketing the above snippet didn’t work in my case. i had to play with the settings in the Genesis >>Design Settings >> Header area. The option is there to increase the header widget area size BUT doing this way, height of header increases undesirably, which needs to be resolved.

    That is the experience I have had.  Thank you for your response.

    Did you work in the css resizing the title area? That is what I have tried/found and I would like to make the area for the logo/title to be around 450px long keeping the height the same.

    The sub nav div wrap becomes HUGE.  I think I am finding all the places to do this, but then I come to a dead end.

    For height control i used

    #header {
    float: left;

    but rest of the options were available in the theme ( prose) setting area for widening the header widget. I tried to do it with CSS as well and it is possible too. You can find that in #header area of css of your child theme.
