[Solved] Header: cropping incorrectly and error on header overlay  



Hi - I uploaded a header sized 1920 x 300, per theme instructions, but it appears that the header is being automatically cropped.  I've had to remake my header so that it doesn't get cropped.  How do I keep the header image from automatically cropping?  The original header is attached.

Also - I would like to not have a header overlay, but that doesn't appear to be an option.  When I try to make it transparent, I get a message that something went wrong. I've made it very light temporarily, but would it to be transparent.


Thanks for your help!

Hello Twaineo,

There is no definite dimension recommended for the logo. To control the padding of the logo section, navigate to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS, and copy and paste the below CSS code:

.cm_header-five .top-header .logo-container {

padding-top: 30px;
padding-bottom: 30px;

Let me know if it does not work.

Best regards.

Hello Twaineo,

The header image is not used for displaying the logo or used for the site identity, it is just a background image for the header. If you want to use it as a logo, please do so by uploading it via Appearance > Customize > Site Identity. If you insist on using it as like now, then we can not help you because the purpose and the use of the header image are just for the background image of the header.

Best regards.

Got it!  I did not initially understand that when I set up the site.  I'm trying to use it as a logo, but struggling with the dimensions because there seems to be a lot of padding added even after I crop the image.  What are the recommended dimensions for the logo?

Thanks again!


Got it!  Thanks!
