Tagged: Centric Header
June 23, 2014 at 1:30 am #111122
I've been working on getting rid of the shrinking header in Centric, and it's not working. I don't know what I'm missing.
I followed this, which was also something I found when I tried to Google.
So basically, it worked, but the header is now huge, and is overlapping the first widget area.
In addition (and this was happening before I removed the shrinking function) for some reason my logo is getting cropped, even though I changed the size in my functions file, and the logo size matches what I placed in my functions file.
Any help would be appreciated!

I'm not sure I can help, but you'll need to provide a link to your site so someone can have a look at the sizing issue.June 23, 2014 at 10:39 am #111170
Oh shoot, I thought I did, but now I see I left the link to the thread I followed twice.
Thanks jodzeee!June 23, 2014 at 11:02 am #111176
The logo that you've got uploaded is actually that size and cropped, so you'll have to start by pointing it to one that is the size you want.
You may have to tweak the CSS to get the container width you want so it's not overlapping.June 23, 2014 at 11:13 am #111179
I guess that's what I don't understand. Why, when the dimensions are correct in the functions file, set exactly to the size of the logo, is it cropping, and it is blowing it up. But, I added it to the .site-header in the css and it is fine, so I'm going to go with that for now, and monkey with the css.
Thanks for your reply!June 23, 2014 at 11:32 am #111182
Now the responsiveness isn't working properly though. How were you pointing to the image, via "appearance" in the dashboard or in CSS? I've never seen it rename it "cropped". Are you sure you were pointing to the right image?
I think you could do similar to what you did with .site-header, but apply it to the title area in your CSS instead of telling the theme to put it there via functions.

Yeah, I see the responsiveness. I uploaded that image via the header part of my admin. So I don't know.
I'm just playing with it now, but I was hoping to use it in a re-design. I don't like the floating header in mobile, either. It's going to take some tweaking. Not sure I have time for it.
Thanks for the links, I've used those before. I was mostly wondering how it would look if I plopped it in CSS.

I've always had a hard time figuring out how to control it using the way you tried it with upload and sizing in functions, but have better luck with CSS, so I feel your pain 🙂June 23, 2014 at 11:42 am #111186
It's always problematic when I need it to be quick! 🙂
