I’ve edited the CSS in an attempt to make the banner image space 960 px x 250 px, but the image uploader is still cropping the image to 960 × 115 pixels.
the site is at http://www.cursillodsv.net
Here is a screenshot showing Firebug CSS. I don’t undertand why some of the CSS is showing strikethrough. Please advise how to make the image area accept my larger banner.
Thanks in advance for your help.
In the functions.php file the Magazine theme has:
/** Add support for custom header */ add_theme_support( 'genesis-custom-header', array( 'width' => 960, 'height' =>; 115 ) );
If you change the height to 250 and re-upload your header you should be good.
Thanks, that did the trick.
Any thoughts on how a non-programmer would figure that out? I guess I should’ve thought to check the functions.php page, but it seems there should be a way to change banner sizes within the theme settings – any plans for that functionality on CopyBlogger’s To Do list?
And where would the clueless among us (like myself) find the functions.php file? (sorry I’m a newbie!)
From the WordPress dashboard, click on Appearance > Editor, then to the right of your screen you should be able to click on Theme Functions (functions.php).
Make sure to make a copy of the file before making any edits so you can re-upload it in the case you make a mistake and (temporarily) break your site.
Thanks Charlie – I’m going to work on that this weekend! I especially liked the tip about copying everything first…it’s like you knew I was bound to screw something up. Which considering my experience….
