I'm trying to redesign my website, and I want to add a banner image above my header on my eleven40 pro theme, which is here - http://www.parentnormal.com. I've found some instructions online here - http://sridharkatakam.com/adding-banner-image-header-eleven40-pro/. However, my attempts to follow these instructions resulted in the white screen of death, which I thankfully fixed.
Does anyone know of a more simple way to explain this process to a layman who very rarely works in code? Also, I think I my original mistake was trying to add my image into the code, but the instructional link above didn't give detailed instructions on how exactly to do that. And finally, the image I want to add is currently 1140x453. Do I need to add that info to the code?
Your advice is much appreciated.
Might be easier to add a custom widget before the header using this code http://wpsites.net/web-design/add-banner-before-header/
Your instructions helped me create the "Before Header" widget area, but when I tried to create a text widget with an image to add there, no image appeared above my header. Instead, it was a very large empty box with a question mark in the middle. Did I add my image wrong in the code?
I assumed that I just (1) add my new banner image to my media library, (2) copy the image's URL, (3) replace this part of the code - http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/logo.png"><img src="http://127.0.0.1:4001/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/logo.png with my picture, and (4) add a text widget inside the new "Before Header" widget area with this new code.
Where is my mistake?
Your help is very appreciated!
Please insert your image into a new Post draft and then copy the HTML for the image from the text editor which you can then paste it the text widget populated in the new before header widget my code generates.
Thanks again. I'm very near to what I want, but when I insert the picture, there is about a 1 inch gap of white space between the new banner and the subtitle language. Is there a way to get rid of that extra space?
Thank you for your help.
Here is the link to my site, so you can see the white space beneath my new banner I'm trying to get rid of.
