Hey everyone. I'm brand new to this whole world and I'm doing my best to learn on my own but I'm a little stuck at the moment.
I'd like to replace the small, black, gradient image that is used as the default for Mindstream theme with an image/logo that I've uploaded to WP.
I thought the code in question would be the following:
background: url(images/gradient.png) top repeat-x;
margin: 0 auto;
and that all I'd need to do is replace the "images/gradient.png" portion with the shortlink for my logo image (while deleting the repeat-x) and I'd be good to go. This is, however, not the case.
Also, I have already gone to Genesis settings and changed the title header from text to image.
Thanks for your help,
I see that you're using a custom CSS file, which is likely why your changes aren't taking effect. The site is loading both stylesheets and the original is overriding your custom styles. In general, child themes are meant to be edited directly; they don't update (only the Genesis framework does) so you are free to change the child however you'd like.
That said, the rule in your custom CSS file is identical to the one in the Mindstream stylesheet - same path - so that's another potential reason the new image isn't showing up.
Hope that helps!
Thanks a lot. Yes, it's true I am using a custom style sheet (being overly safe) , but the custom style sheet is set to override the original, and other changes I've made have taken effect.
So, editing the original CSS or the custom, what change needs to be made to remove the black gradient strip for the title header and insert my logo image?
