    Hello there,

     

    I am hoping some could please help…..

    I would like to use the 2nd menu in the ‘Header right’ section, but would also like to have a logo in the background, like this website has - http://shootyallphotography.com/.

    I have tried to use both, but can’t, as it throws the menu off….I think it has to be the image underneath, but I have no clue where that is in CSS and the size required to get it right.

    My own website is – http://www.audio-byte.co.uk.

    Would appreciate any help…thanks in advance…

    Can you paste a link to your logo? If not, upload it to your media library and grab the url to it and paste it here.

    You can change the size of the header area and use a transparent background on your logo.

    Here’s the header code:

    Line 60 style.css file

    [css]
    /***** Header ********************/

    #header {
    width: 960px;
    height: 120px;
    }
    [/css]

    You can also add support for a custom header by adding this to your child themes functions.php file.

    [php]
    /** Add support for custom header */
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array( ‘width’ => 960, ‘height’ => 120 ) );
    [/php]

    Edit the values for the height based on your logo size

    I guess you want to keep the header logo the same size?

    If so, change the css and php values for the height to 170. See the example above.

    You’ll need to add the php to your functions file.

    You’ll then need to change the size of the header widget width.

    You might also want to get the header designer to send your the file with a transparent background otherwise its going to be white on grey.
