    I was trying to use a hook to place an image in the header area so that it would shrink when viewed on smaller screens. I deleted the image from the header settings on the dashboard and edited my functions.php file with code that I found here: http://www.geoffreyrickaby.com/web-development/how-to-create-a-static-header-in-genesis

    The banner has now disappeared. When I checked firebug, I could see that the header there had nothing in the url  in background CSS, athough I put it there more than once. Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be wrong? The site I’m talking about is http://sample4.tonibdesign.com/

    Thanks in Advance,

    Toni

    The image won’t automatically shrink.

    You’d need to install a responsive header plugin and add different image sizes.

    There’s many ways you can display a static header image.

    Using CSS
    Install a plugin
    Add HTML to Genesis Simple Hooks header hook field
    Add a custom function

    None of these will make your header image responsive unless you have a special plugin or have added code to make it responsive. http://designsbynickthegeek.com/plugins/genesis-responsive-header

    Thanks for your help.  I have tried using CSS and adding a custom function. After checking firebug, I can see that custom divs, html, etc. that I added using functions.php are not showing up. I posted the question above to see if anyone had any idea why it’s not working.  Thanks again for taking the time to answer my post though.
