    Missing check-box “Show header text with your image” in Header settings (APPEARANCE). Changed Lifestyle from 2.0 to 3.0 and can select header image but image doesn’t appear alt all or not with the site title and description from the “General Settings”
    in the WordPress dashboard and not with the proper size.

    Also cannot find In the Genesis > Theme Settings the “Header Settings” box where to
    select to show the “Image Logo” or “Dynamic Text” logo.

    Its been turned off by default however you can go into your child themes functions.php file and turn it on:

    Line 40:
    [php]
    //* Add support for custom header
    add_theme_support( ‘custom-header’, array(
    ‘header_image’ => ”,
    ‘header-selector’ => ‘.site-title a’,
    ‘header-text’ => false,
    ‘height’ => 110,
    ‘width’ => 320,
    ) );
    [/php]

    Change false to true.

    Hi there,
    Thanks, it worked well, the header text now appears fine, but uploaded (851×315) and cropped header image doesn’t fill the total header width. Whats’s still wrong?

    You need to change the values in your child themes functions.php file.

    You may also need to change the values in your child themes style.css file to match the same settings.
    [php]
    //* Add support for custom header
    add_theme_support( ‘custom-header’, array(
    ‘header_image’ => ”,
    ‘header-selector’ => ‘.site-title a’,
    ‘header-text’ => false,
    ‘height’ => 315,
    ‘width’ => 851,
    ) );
    [/php]

    Line 894 style.css
    [css]
    .header-image .site-title a {
    float: left;
    min-height: 315px;
    width: 100%;
    }
    [/css]

    Followed your advice exactly and got bigger uploaded image (315 x 851) in Header Setting but selected and cropped part of header image doesn’t appear fully in header instead of the header colour. Changing the image size in child themes functions.php file. and style.css file had no effect on site appearance but only in Header Setting dashboard.

    Apart from this the button for changing the header text colour is not here.

    Any idea?

    Yes, this image should be displayed in full header width with WP-General Setting Title and Subtitle like the old version with Lifestyle 2.0 here:

    Didn’t you want to use an image which is 851×315?

    Please link to the full image.

    The image you linked to is only 150px.

    Hi there,

    Upgrading 4 websites (Genesis 2.0/Lifestyle 2.0) to Lifestyle 3.0 and everything works fine beside the Header Settings (Image +Text). No text-colour tuning in Header-Settting to find and uploaded header-image does not appear in full header width.

    1. Webtourist-Lifestyle3 should appear like Webtourist-Lifestyle2 with this uploaded 970×782image-URL

    2. Prof.Eisenrith3 sholud appear like Prof.Eisenrith.2 with this uploaded image (1663×1143) in full header width with text title and subtitle

    Thank so much for your individual help but I would prefer updating all my other sites by myself from Lifestyle 2.0 to Lifestyle 3.0 when the header settings work fine in the new Lifestyle version. Please inform me, whether there comes out a updated version Lifestyle 2.1 so nobody needs the help of a experienced developer for installing and setting the new Lifestyle.

    Hi Edward

    You can easily style the header text using CSS code

    Hi Brad,

    sorry, Im not able coding CSS. This is above the ceiling of my knowledge. Therefore I am a STUDIOPRESS addict who promise creating sites without coding!

    Best I will wait for a updated perfect version 3.1 for child theme Lifestyle in which Header Settings work fine. Please inform me when it is coming out, thank you so much for your help.

    Hi, I uploaded a header image to Lifestyle Pro, changed the appropriate functions.php and style.css codes as per instructions here. However, when I wanted to turn the site title back on, my image shrank.

    The image is 1140×240, and as far as I can tell by double checking all the instructions, I’ve made all the code changes necessary.

    I did 2 screen grabs, first is with the full size header, second is after changing false to true in CSS under add support for custom header. Uploaded it as an image at http://vivadamao.com/discoverdaman/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/wonkyheader.png

    Dev site is at http://vivadamao.com/discoverdaman.

    Appreciate any help.

    Thanks much,
    Susanna
